By Kate Whitney

Sugar is already known as a culprit for the increased risk of diabetes and obesity. Research continues to link sugar to heart disease, hypertension, strokes, gout, periodontal disease, fatty liver disease, and many other health problems.

The Bosque County (Clifton) Rotary Club took a tour of spacious museum near historic downtown Clifton on Thursday, January 11.
