I am right. New research coming out of America’s most respected institutions is starting to find that sugar the way many people are eating it today is a toxin and could be the driving force behind this countries’ leading killers including heart disease. So, now this cup cake will give me a heart attack along with anyone's diabetic condition. The added sugars to our bodies have placed America into a health crisis.
What is worse is that 75% of it is preventable. Why are we killing ourselves? Why is the food industry making crap easily available to buy and eat? This Doctor has written at least a dozen articles on the dangers of sugar. Look at his lecture on You Tube called “Sugar The Bitter Truth” and listen to his message for yourself.
The worst sugar is what they add called High Fructose Corn Syrup. It is equivalent to table sugar, makes everything taste good but is poured into stuff in large quantities that we just don’t need and they are both bad, equally toxic. Years ago factory food wasn’t everywhere. If you craved something sweet, you ate some sweet fruit. You satisfied your cravings and also got your fiber from the pulp in just biting into a apple or peach and a round fruit fits perfectly in your palm and is the right amount of natural sugar for you. That giant box of cookies is going down, nobody can tell me to eat just 4 cookies! Ouch, am I getting a heart attack?
As usual it is all about money. As sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup became cheaper to produce, food manufactures began pouring it in our foods in large quantities. We all know that a “spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down,” but stop singing that song, we’ve had too many spoonfuls and now we have to monitor diabetes. Americans now consume 130 pounds of sugar per year. That is one third of a POUND every day not a cup. Go measure it out and see what a ridiculous amount of sweet it is.
Studies done by Kimber Standhope a Nutritional Biologist at the University of California Davis, has also linked sugars to strokes. The liver gets too much sugar, and converts some of it into fat and the fat ends up in the blood stream and then clogs it up with a dangerous form of cholesterol called LDL that form together, clog your veins and then you have made great conditions for your stroke or heart attack.
Louis Cantley, a Harvard Professor and the head of the Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center says through his studies he has determined that when we eat or drink sugar it causes a sudden spike in the hormone insulin which can serve as a catalos to fuel certain types of cancers . What is worse is that findings have proved that sugars are one of the most addictive substances on earth. Ok! Enough proof I’ll try to keep away from the stuff.
