The Effects of Sugar on the Body
Sugar increases the risk of coronary artery disease because it inflames the linings of arteries to the heart. ‘High sugar levels impair the arteries’ ability to respond to the heart’s need for more blood flow and make both arteries and platelets “stickier,” increasing the risk of a stroke or heart attack.’ – Jennifer Berman, MD.
Ingesting refined white sugar creates a process called glycation, which ages and weakens your skin and causes wrinkles and sagging.
‘Sugar is poison to the body.’ – Dr.Robert Lustig
Having one can of soda a day can increase your chance of getting diabetes by 29%, as well as adding 15.9 pounds of fat in unwanted places over a year’s time.
White sugar is the most destructive and degenerating of all, because it is usually ‘refined’ with the use of sulphuric acid. – Dr. Norman Walker
Sugar can damage the delicate filtration system of the kidneys. Thus it is no surprise that diabetes is one of the main causes of kidney failure.
Sugar can aggravate arthritis by pumping inflammatory cytokines into your blood stream.
Sugar can rewire the reward pathways of the brain. A study in the British Journal of Psychiatry concluded that people with processed, sugary diets had a 58% higher risk of being depressed.
