76 Ways Sugar Can Ruin Your Health

Contributed by Nancy Appleton, Ph.D
Author of the book Lick The Sugar Habit

In addition to throwing off the body's homeostasis, excess sugar may
result in a number of other significant consequences. The following is
a listing of some of sugar's metabolic consequences from a variety of
medical journals and other scientific publications.

Sugar can suppress your immune system and impair your defenses against
infectious disease.1,2

and copper deficiencies and interferes with absorption of calcium and
magnesium. 3,4,5,6

Sugar can cause can cause a rapid rise of adrenaline, hyperactivity,
anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness in children.7,8

triglycerides and bad cholesterol and a decrease in good
cholesterol.9,10,11,12

Sugar feeds cancer cells and has been connected with the development of
cancer of the breast, ovaries, prostate, rectum, pancreas, biliary
tract, lung, gallbladder and stomach.14,15,16,17,18,19,20

hypoglycemia.21,22

disease, and ulcerative colitis.24,25,26,27,28

they produce.95

For each item used the qualifier "can" was used. Sugar in and of itself
is not the problem, it is the over consumption of it that matters in
some people, note the qualifier used of "some". Overconsumption of any
single specific food item can be counterproductive in human metabolism
for some people. Any of these descriptors must be additionally
qualified by such things as "on the average", "in the main", and "for
much of the population" etc. to cover the reality of the biology
involved.

can, does, and is. The use of "can" is a standard qualifier in medical
research. And that cannot realistically be used to argue these points.

Nonsense.

Sugar provides ZERO nutrients. Zero positive effects. All negative. No
amount of sugar adds anything useful. And any amount does some damage
of some kind. That on specific food item is counterproductive to anyone
who consumes it in any amount. That idiotic argument could be used for
cyanide and rat poison and it will still fail to score any points.

he reality is that there is no real need for sugar in the diet. It is a
slow poison.

Some science based research to support your assertions would be nice.
Sugar,ie. a combination of fructose and glucose is found abundantly in
many foods. Glucose is the principle energy source for metabolism,
fructose less so as it occurs in a smaller ratio in many foods. Or is
your response a rhetorical exercise not intending to stand on science
but personal preference and food choices for which you would want others
to concur?

Go back to my first post and read the references at the bottom. There
you will find science bassed research. Now go and play with kids your
age kiddo. Us grown ups are having a conversation here.

"Go back to my first post and read the references at the bottom. There
you will find science bassed research. Now go and play with kids your
age kiddo. Us grown ups are having a conversation here."

Ah, the rrhetorical exercise assumed to win others to your views on
personal food choices, how sweet of you; with sugar on it; grin. The
references don't support your blanket views on sugar, except as
described before as seen in the light of the usual qualifiers of "some,
in general, on the average, in some people" etc. as the case in all of
biology. And most important of all, when not consumed in moderation.
Your rhetoric exceeds your ability to support your blanket assertions,
but that is all right as that is the nature of rhetorical excess and
such and those who find it a goal in itself.

Read the book, "Diet and Health" by the National Research Council if
you want a much more objective analysis of the studies. Most are total
epidemiological nonsense, but the biggest problem is that people are
led away from what the molecular-level evidence suggests the root cause
of "chronic disease" is, namely free radical damage. Sugar does not do
this, but dietary unsaturated fatty acids often do. After years of
avoiding sugar (as in "table sugar" and fruit, no HFCS), I now eat
plenty of it, but I make all my own food, and only use enough to
enhance the taste - I could not eat the cookies, cake, etc. sold in
stores, because they have a "sickly sweet" quality to them. Thus, I
agree that too many overall calories may be consumed due to the way the
food most people eat is being prepared. Blaming this on "sugar" is
like blaming a forest fire on the oxidation process, when in fact a
negligent camper didn't put out his campfire from the night before.

You need to go away and read up on advanced glycation endproducts.
Glycated LDL is more likely to become oxidised and therefore
atherogenic. In fact many the quirks of diabetes are caused by excess
blood sugar - such as the peripheral vascular problems that lead to
loss of sight.
