The Case Against Sugar

The Case Against Sugar

There can be no doubt anymore how harmful sugar is to our health.   Pretty much most foods contain sugar of some sort.  It pays to read the labels.

   
  • Evidence suggests excess sugar is a foundational cause of diabetes, obesity, and most chronic degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, not just an exacerbating factor
  • There are significant similarities between the sugar industry and the tobacco industry, with the same kind of flawed science used to defend tobacco now being applied to sugar
  • Like other addictive substances, sugar triggers dopamine secretions in the reward center in your brain.
