10 Reasons Sugar Is Bad

sugar is bad
I'm sure that you know your body is a sugar machine right? At least I think you know that. Your body runs on sugar, it's a sugar machine. However, it's food that gets properly digested and then converted into a special type of sugar that your body runs on, not table sugar.

Too much sugar, eaten directly, can and will mess with the fine balance your body has already put in place. Too much sugar can tax your pancreas while it deals with blood sugar regulation. Tax it for too long and it will give up, ending in blood sugar disease such as Diabetes.

:Kristine, my was to submit a very up close and personal article on the truth about sugar, diabetes and syndrome X, but alas, it was not meant to be this week. Computer issues have put the article on hold for at least one more week while she sources out a replacement computer.

I'll be reintroducing a few of the top reasons that sugar is bad for you over the coming days and weeks, starting with these from Nancy Appleton, Phd. author of the book Lick the Sugar Habit.

10 Reasons Sugar Is Bad

  1. Sugar can suppress the immune system

  2. Sugar upsets the mineral relationships in the body

  3. Sugar can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating,
    and crankiness in children

  4. Sugar can produce a significant rise in triglycerides

  5. Sugar contributes to the reduction in defense against bacterial infection (infectious diseases)

  6. Sugar causes a loss of tissue elasticity and function, the more sugar you eat the more elasticity and function you loose

  7. Sugar reduces high density lipoproteins

  8. Sugar leads to chromium deficiency

  9. Sugar leads to cancer of the breast, ovaries, prostrate, and rectum

  10. Sugar can increase fasting levels of glucose

This is a partial list from , just to wet your appetite for this topic. :Kristine will be submitting her article next Thursday on my other blog

Yeah, you are absolutely right on sugar being bad for weight loss. I have always used a very low carb diet approach for my dieting. I will just eat lots of veggies and meat and the fat just melt off. But I am not that hardcore, I will have my regular meals on the weekends for a mental break.

But I think that that too many people just diet and dont exercise. Exercise plus low sugar dieting works wonders.

sugar is really bad if its not used or taken properly, but of course most people don't care about this or have no idea about the possible causes of this stuff. I'm also thankful that I read this article.
