SUGAR – A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD?
NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
Sugar belongs to our life as a valuable asset for our biological existence – and health. Is that true? Yes and no.
As part of a healthy diet, natural sugar is found in fruits, vegetables and other natural foods such as dairy products, eggs, nuts, etc in form of fructose, lactose and glucose, and therefore, an important part of our nutrition. Scientifically validated, inter alia, at Yale University in Newhaven, CT.
The culprit is (processed) sugar added by man to almost any kind of food, especially soft drinks, chocolate, pies and cakes, etc., for only one reason: to optimize the flavor. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the calorie intake of adults consists of 13% added sugar, that of children even more.
With dramatic consequences on our health such as hypertension and obesity, etc. Not enough, according to the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, validated by, inter alia, research at the University of Utah, this culprit leads to – yes – increased risk of death.
This may many of us mislead to the conclusion that artificial sugars may be the answer for saving our ‘sweet tooth’ – such as saccharin, sucralose or aspartame. Unfortunately a myth as well.
Because according to latest research at, inter alia, Washington University and the Weizman Institute of Science in Israel, artificial sweeteners – industry’s pandora’s box labeled ‘diet’ or ‘sugar-free’ – promotes the risk of diabetes and obesity. Sounds ‘schizophrenic’ > ?
