Everything I eat must be sweet. I am guilty of that and I know for a fact that too much sugar in my food is not good. It is an energy giver type of food but this quick surge of energy makes us crave for it more. And the more you eat sugar, the more you get sick – literally.
Why is sugar bad for you? Well, let’s see. Teeth and gum problems, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and more… These conditions happen because of too much sugar consumption. A study proved that a person eats seventy six pounds of sugar each year and this is where the illnesses start. As you eat sugar, your glucose levels increases really quickly. Your pancreas will spit out insulin and when there is an overage of that, you know the rest.
