A metabolic currency or a dangerous drug?
Did you know that most of us are addicted to a drug that causes millions of unhappy and ruined lives? I’m not talking about television or Internet (not today), I’m talking about SUGAR.
Now you may think, of course, if you eat too much sugar you’ll get fat and get a diabetes too. So don’t. But the problem is more complex, because sugar consumption is addictive. You can’t just stop easily.
Below I give you links to articles and blogs on sugar’s harmful effects and some advice on how to resist the white death.
The maximum safe amount of added sugar is about 62 grams per day. That is the average of the Canadian FDA, British FDA, USDA, and the American Diabetes Association. Many people exceed that.
Excessive sugar consumption is linked to multiple diseases as you can find out from a paper in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
But don’t worry – there is a way out!
Ann Louise Gittleman explains What you can do to get the sugar out.
And finally a treat for lovers of the video format – Sugar: The Bitter Truth by Professor of Endocrinology Robert Lustig.
Live a healthy life, make sugar your friend not foe!
