Two hundred and fifty years ago last April, the British Parliament passed the Sugar Act. This was a a revenue raiser that imposed a tax on sugar and other goods imported from New World colonies, while also fomenting the movement that eventually became the American Revolution.
glucose is natural sugar that occurs in fruits, vegetables, and animal tissues.It provides the body with its primary source of energy. The word is from Greek for "sweet" = GLUC with the addition of the suffix -ose, which identifies all sugars.
This type of sugar comes from digesting carbohydrates into a chemical that the body can easily convert to energy.
When glucose levels in the bloodstream aren't properly regulated, a person can develop a serious condition, such as diabetes.
