How does the sugar in fruit compare to the sugar in processed foods like soda or cookies?

Everyone loves a sweet treat, but on average, Americans eat nearly 66 pounds of added sugar per person per year. It's easy to exceed the daily recommended sugar intake when a 12 oz soda has about 11 teaspoons of added sugar. But what about the sugar in fruit? Should people be worried about how much fruit they're eating? Dr. Kimber Stanhope, a Nutritional biologist at UC Davis, walks us through the science.
