REASON #1: SUGAR LEADS TO CELLULAR DEATH
In 1957, Dr William Coda Martin published a study on the chemical effects of sugar on the body. In a nutshell, here’s what’s going on . . .
The process of refining sugar completely drains it of vitamins and minerals. That’s why sugar is said to have nothing but empty calories. When the body tries to digest the refined sugar, it can’t break it down nutritionally. This creates a toxic substance called pyruvic acid. This acid has a lethal effect on our cells.
Basically, sugar blocks oxygen from getting through, resulting in cellular death. And, according to Dr Martin, this “is the beginning of degenerative disease.”
REASON #2: SUGAR DRAINS THE BODY OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS
Since sugar is so difficult to break down, our bodies have to use a lot of vitamins and minerals just to make use of this toxin. So a sudden influx of sugar creates an incredible strain on the body.
This means the body has to use its vital resources of sodium, magnesium and potassium and other essential nutrients just to bring itself back into balance.
In other words, sugar creates a chaotic mess in our bodies and consumes a lot of our health resources to bring everything back under control.
Oh, and do you want to know why tooth decay comes from eating too many sweets?
This is a big reason why you see a lot of mothers trying to enforce a sugar-free lifestyle on their children…who wants all those cavities anyways?
It’s because calcium is taken from the bones and teeth to help protect the blood from the acid imbalances brought on by sugar. This leads to decay and weakening of the bones.
Sugar’s devastation on the body just never stops.
REASON #3: SUGAR LEADS TO AN ALL-OUT ASSAULT ON THE VITAL ORGANS
Let’s follow sugar’s pathway through the body. At first, sugar is stored in the liver in the form of glycogen. But after a daily diet of refined sugar, the liver begins to swell like a balloon. This causes a backup of sugar (now in fatty acid form) in the blood.
Next stop . . . inactive areas such as the waist, buttocks, belly and thighs where fatty acids are stored.
Then another backup. Only this time, the fatty acids settle in the heart, kidneys and other organs.
Slowly their contaminated cells begin to turn into fat, too. The organs begin to slow down, leading to high blood pressure, small brain paralysis and diabetes.
And, believe it or not, that’s just for starters. Refined sugar affects digestion, body chemicals and even the nervous system.
See why this drives me crazy?
Sugar is one of the most dangerous substances you can put into your body. It overtakes every area. It affects everything. And our society is overrun with it……and we feed it to ourselves AND our kids every morning when we dish up those crappy breakfast cereals loaded with sugar and chemicals.
Processed food companies are doing nothing but slowly killing our society in the name of profit.
Breakfast cereals and so-called 100% fruit juices are 2 of the biggest corporate lies…..and the media print their ads and show their products on television because they get paid to.
We are designed to live on REAL FOOD, so if it swims in the ocean, walks on the earth, grows on a tree or comes out of the ground. EAT IT!!!!
If it comes out of a factory….avoid it as far as possible.
The effects of a cutting out refined sugar from your diet include:
– Improved digestion – reduced bloating
– Reduced Mood Swings and Mid-Afternoon Crashes
– Improves the look of your Skin and Reduces Wrinkles
– Dramatically Improves Your Energy, Stamina and Mental Alertness
