Between now and next Monday American’s will consume an abundance of sugar. That’s not even considering the fact that the holidays are coming. Heck they are here! There will be office parties, trick or treating, mall events, house parties and the list goes on and on. All of these events spell one thing and one thing only…..SUGAR! Sugar is literally killing the human body. Yes it taste good, but the high fructose and sucrose does such damage . Sugar can suppress the immune system, it interferes with the mineral relationship with the body, can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness in children. Sugar can produce a significant rise in triglycerides, reduces the body’s defense against bacterial infection, reduces bone density, leads to ovarian cancer, increases fasting glucose levels, copper deficiency, interferes with calcium and magnesium. Weakens eyesight, can cause arthritis, gallstones, appendicitis, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, hemorrhoids, and the list literally goes on and on. Sugar is a weapon to the body. Is an occasional sweet tooth going to kill you….NO! However, we shouldn’t want to aid in these conditions effecting us, and one way to aid is to continue putting the poison in our bodies. Sodas, chips, cakes, ice cream, etc. October 31, 2011 there will be pillowcases and garbage bags filled with nothing but sugar, sugar, and more sugar. I remember when I was a kid my mother would take my bag of candy and put it in the freezer so that I would not consume it during that week. Not just Halloween though. Our daily Starbucks Frapps, and Lattes, Mocha’s, you name it. High sugar follows us, we eat it and it sits in our bodies eating our teeth away, our calcium away, the magnesium, our immune system………AWAY! Reduce your sugar intake. Like way down! There are alternatives to sugar, you just gotta go out and research to find it, but it’s there.
Have a great day and Keep JoOcing!
