Sugar contributes to a wide array of health issues. Unfortunately, it has been presented to us by advertisers to be such an innocent food to enjoy at celebrations and holidays but the over consumption of it is quickly destroying the health of this country. And it’s not that soda here or there, it’s the fact that the average American consumes 155 lbs of sugar EVERY YEAR!

The Toxic Effects of Sugar are Well Known But Often Ignored
Many who study the effects of sugar on the body, call it toxic and poisonous and they also call it ‘Skeleton Powder’ because it leaches calcium out of the bones and makes them brittle, contributing to osteoporosis. I know it may seem extreme to call sugar toxic and poisonous but when you look up the definition of the word poison, it doesn’t seem extreme at all:
Poison: a substance with an inherent property that tends to destroy life or impair health.
Sugar has been PROVEN to destroy life and impair health. Over consumption of this poison has been linked to low energy, mood swings, hot flashes, restless sleep, migraines, anxiety, depression, mental fogginess, feeling out of control, inflamed gum disease, cavities in the teeth, aches and pains in the joints….just to name a few.
These are really just the symptoms that people will typically feel when they consume too much sugar. These are all red flags that your body is trying to tell you something is wrong. When these red flags get ignored they can turn into full blown health conditions like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis.
These are the main diseases in America and around the world, in countries who consume a lot of sugar and white processed flour. Countries that do not consume these foods, these diseases are virtually unheard of in their culture. 1 out of 2 people in America DIE of heart disease! 1 out of 3 DIE of cancer!
Unfortunately it has been known for many years that cancer feeds off sugar and gets stronger. The other concern is that sugar highly suppresses your immune system which means you can get sick easier and have a harder time fighting off a current disease that you may have.
The other concern about excess sugar is that it increases chronic inflammation dramatically in the body. And most health professionals believe that excess inflammation is a root to practically every major disease the human body deals with.
Sugar Addiction Quiz
The goal is to really understand what sugar is and what is doing to our bodies. And if we don’t do something about it, how is it going to affect you 10 to 30 years down the road? It would also be important to really ask yourself if you have a sugar addiction or not.
A great way to find out is to take this quiz .
YOU get to decide if you are addicted to sugar or not. No one else can you tell you, so take a minute to take ‘The Quiz’ and find out if you really are addicted sugar.
