Sugar Is Toxic?

 Sugar Is Toxic

 

Is sugar toxic? This is the question that is answered in the video below. Experts used to think it was fat that was causing heart disease and diabetes. This is why our government decided to regulate fat in our food. The problem is we still have these same problems and they are even on the rise. Is sugar to toxic and to blame for these diseases? According to Dr. Lustig a Pediatric Endocrinologist, sugar is toxic and is responsible for many killer diseases such as obesity, hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes and certain cancers. He is not only talking about the white stuff you know and love. He is talking about all the hidden sugars that are in processed food. (A whole other reason to stay away from processed foods). Basically he says sugar is killing Americans and sugar is toxic.

Go ahead and watch the video below and see  exactly what is being said and decide for yourself if sugar is toxic. It might make you really take a hard look at what you are eating. I know it has done this for me.

 Sugar Is Toxic After All – Shocking Don’t You Think!

I never really realized how bad sugar is for us. I was shocked in the video that they compared sugar as being as addictive as cocaine.  My entire life I have had a weakness with baked goods.  I am not a fan of candy, but when it comes to homemade cookies, cakes and pies I am all over them. In fact every time I go out with friends they are always surprised if I don’t buy a cookie. At one time I was eating these at least twice a day or more. I have since cut back drastically. I also used to bake my own cookies and cakes, but I have not done that for awhile either. What I have found is, by not having these things in the house I really don’t crave them to much.  Now there are days where I will go through every cupboard in the kitchen looking for any sweet morsel I can find, but those are few and far between.

I pretty much gave up soda years ago. I just stopped buying it. It was not because I was worried about heart disease,  but more about getting cavities. I knew soda just ate away at my teeth so I decided to stay away from it. This does not mean I don’t drink it at all. Usually I will have one glass maybe once every two weeks if that. Instead I drink water or tea. This change was really not that difficult for, but I do watch friends of mine who are addicted to Coke drink it with every meal.

It is very sad to me because there are so many people that can’t get enough sugar. If it is not in baked goods or candy they are sucking down sodas or other sugary drinks. Even iced tea that I drink completely plain has sugar added. So lets say you give up on all the baked goods and everything else you think has sugar in it. I would think you would be doing great. According to the video this is not so though. Instead there are hidden sugars everywhere. I don’t know about you, but this makes me pretty angry because I could be making an effort to limit my sugar, but still get it eating normal foods.

I am not going to say you need to give up sugar all together and that sugar is toxic.  No I am not a doctor, but I do try to live my life like my great grandmother did and my grandmother and that is in moderation. Both my great grandmother and grandmother lived to be in their 90’s and they still ate sugar. I agree with what the sugar cane guy in the video is saying. People need to to eat things in moderation. If we limit sugar from people we are not addressing the whole problem. That is how exercise is a crucial component to good health. I actually get asked all the time if I were to choose between a good healthy diet or exercise which one would I choose. My answer is exercise. The reason is exercise provides benefits just eating a healthy diet does not. It builds up your bones, it keeps your heart healthy, increases your metabolism, and it strengthens your muscles. It is beyond me why so many people just refuse to exercise and make up every excuse in the book why they can’t.  Sorry for getting a little off topic there.

Do You Think Sugar Is Toxic?

So what do you think ? Experts are saying sugar is toxic.  What are you going to do about it now? Are you going to continue drinking sugary drinks even though you know what sugar can do and that sugar is toxic? I for one am going to think long and hard about how much sugar I consume. No I am not giving up sugar, but I am going to continue to do what I have been doing and that is have it in moderation.

  1. This is a good post, Paul, and will hopefully make more people aware of just how much sugar they have in their diet and how it’s affecting them. Do you know I recently heard the FDA is considering making it a controlled substance? I can see millions of people going through sugar withdrawal!

  2. As I read this it just reaffirmed to me the importance of doing the Ultimate Reset next week. I have a love/hate relationship with sugar, but it also scares the hell out of me to think I could get diabetes, or have heart issues.
    I agree that too much of anything isn’t healthy. Having everything in moderation is key. Another thing most people forget is that back in the day, your Great Gran, and Grandma would bust ass working! Does anyone remember what THAT is?! Burning off that sugar before it could even be turned into fat – using it has it was intended. I quick boost to get through the job, and before you know it, it’s burned off and your work is complete. Thank you for this informative post; hopefully it will open more eyes to see that there’s hidden sugars everywhere – it’s up to you how you deal with them.

  3. Thank you everyone for you comments. When I saw this I knew I had to share it. When I see 8 year old’s getting type 2 diabetes something is very wrong and we need to make drastic changes. Suzanne you made an great point. My great grandmother was working on the house in her 90’s. Staying active is one of the keys to longevity. Sitting all day is your ticket to sickness and death. When are more people going to wake up and start doing something about this? I feel people in general are just in denial. Something drastic needs to be done.

  4. This is great. Makes me not want to touch sugar. I know this is gonig to stick in my mind the next time I grabe a candybar from the candy bucket at work. That thing is evil!
