Disadvantages Of Sugar

What Are The biggest Disadvantages of Sugar?

The literature appears the disadvantages of sugar. We see the emergence of Cardio-Metabolic disease often with a lag time of 18-20 years.

Anything containing primary grains and direct sugar, particularly processed foods, sodas raises insulin(hormone produced in the pancreas) very high and programs fat cells to hoard calories by turning on the ”fat switch”.

Doctors recommend to control daily sugar intake from all sources, including natural ones like fruits to NOT MORE THAN 25GM/DAY!

 

4GM sugar is equal to 1 TSP sugar- NOT MORE THAN 6 TSP/DAY for women and 9TSP/DAY for men. Studies showed that 1 Coke has 11 TSP sugar(HFCS) and a glass of fresh orange juice has 7TSP of sugar.

 An average consumes 22TSP sugar per day( 25% Average Americans daily total calories)

 

Remember, you can only safely metabolize 6-9 TSP of sugar in a day & rest of the sugar gets convert to fat in the liver and intestine and rest of the body parts turning on the fat switch and causes ”insulin and leptin resistance” and Cardio-Metabolic Disease which is actually a Western Disease.

 

An Hba1c (average sugar level over 3 months) over 7 causes a seven-fold increase in Cardiovascular disease. I believe that 100% of people developing heart disease have insulin resistance.

In our youth, we have excellent endothelial ( the lining of our blood vessels) function that is resistant to sugar together with low uric acids levels over time in our 30’s and 40’s, due to our continued poor diet, with rising sugar and uric acid, the average person puts on 1-2 pounds per year and we see the emergence of the disease of civilization.

It’s time we do something about as more than 50% of all health care expenditures and related to the over consumption of sugar and grains and they are killing people worldwide.

If you’re diabetic, obese or overweight then you should be avoiding intaking sugar as much as possible or more likely once in a week. But if you really want to stay fit and healthy from inside then you must avoid taking sugar and the foods which have sugar content in it like processed foods, soft-drinks, baked goods.
