You may know that white sugar is a pure chemical= C12,H22,O11. Does that make it a drug?
Arab doctors used sugar as medicine 1,000 years ago. It was used as a medicine of last resort. When all else failed, they would administer 2 to 3 grains of sugar and often the patient would revive. (Source: Sugar Blues, by William Dufty)
How much do we consume of this powerful drug-like substance in our modern world? 130 pounds per person per year.
Do you think this might be a problem?
Here are some of the challenges sugar throws at your body.
It makes your brain think you haven’t eaten. You continue to feel hungry even though your belly is full. This is according to endocrinologist Robert Lustig, MD, author of Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.
Sugar makes you age faster. The fructose, a simple sugar in the complex sugar known as white sugar, speeds up the rate of cell death. This contributes to chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Sugar feeds cancer. This is a highly controversial area and not everyone agrees. My take? Why take a chance.
Sugar makes your liver fat. When you flood the liver with sugar, it has no choice but to turn it into liver fat. So what? A 2012 study in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition found people who ate 1,000 extra calories of sugary foods saw just a 2 percent increase in body weight, but a 27 percent increase in liver fat. This can lead to:
Fatty Liver Disease (the non-alcoholic variety).
Sugar makes you an addict. Eating sugar gives you a feeling of pleasure. But, as you eat more and more, you need more and more to get that pleasure. Does that sound like a heroin or hard drug addict? Might sugar actually be a “hard drug?” It seems to act like one. If it quacks like a duck…
Cutting back on sugar has a limited usefulness. We actually need to totally cut out fructose for two weeks to allow the body to recover from the onslaught of sugar’s attack.
