Sugar

I’ll like to let you know that sugar is very harmful. It’s has damaging effect on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases. The evidence is mounting that sugar, not fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on metabolism.

Studies show that large amounts of fructose can raise triglycerides, raise blood glucose and insulin levels and increase abdominal obesity, in as little as 10 weeks. Here are some more reasons why added sugar is a bad idea.

Empty calories

Added sugars (like sucrose and high fructose corn syrup) contain calories with no essential nutrients. They are called “empty” calories. There are no proteins, essential vitamins or minerals in sugar, just pure energy. When people eat up to 10-20 percent of calories as sugar, this can become a major problem and contribute to nutrient deficiencies.

Sugar can cause abdominal obesity, in as little as 10 weeks…

Sugar is also very bad for the teeth, because it provides easily digestible energy for the bad bacteria in the mouth. It also causes tooth decay by feeding the harmful bacteria in the mouth..

Liver disease

When fructose gets turned into fat in the liver, it is converted into cholesterol, and some of the fat gets lodged in the liver. This can lead to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease–a growing problem in Western countries that is strongly associated with metabolic diseases.

Insulin resistance; Having too much glucose in the blood is highly toxic and one of the reasons for complications of diabetes, like blindness. One feature of the metabolic dysfunction that is caused by the Western diet, is that insulin stops working as it should. The cells become “resistant” to it.

Type 2 diabetes ;Do you know that people who drink sugar–sweetened beverages have up to an 83 percent higher risk of Type 2 diabetes. Because of the harm

Cancer; Multiple studies show that people who eat a lot of sugar are at a much higher risk of getting cancer. Insulin is one of the key hormones in regulating this sort of growth.
