WHY FOCUS ON EXCESSIVE SUGAR CONSUMPTION?
The average American consumes 160 pounds of added sugar per year; people of color consume twice as much, leading to higher incidents of cancer, heart disease, and obesity. These diseases are now affecting us at historically young ages. Our goal is to help consumers make smarter choices, holistically.
Shannon Sylvain founded Brown Sugar Rehab after her stage IV colon cancer diagnosis at the age of 31. Through research conducted by herself and her physician, Shannon learned that many, if not all, cancers breed and flourish in sugar environments. She also discovered that people of color are affected at higher rates due to lack of education, which ultimately leads to poor choices. Shannon has made it her mission to combat this in a meaningful way.
