are sugar). And yes sugar gives youpure energy. When you overdo
the sugar, it doesn‟t pass out of
you in the urine or feces. Unlessyou are diabetic. The body storesit JIC for use in a famine. Initially inthe form of glycogen then in fat forlong term savings.Sugar is defined as sweet crystal-line substance obtained from vari-ous plants and milks, which can beused as nourishment and as asweetener in food and drink. It isnecessary for existence. The brainruns on glucose (breast milk is
loaded with sugar). So don‟t take
the position of eradicating it fromyour diet. There is a theory, thesensation of sweetness evolved toencourage humans to eat sweetfoods. Foods that would in turnfeed their brains. The closer thatsugar is to the root, the better itwill be for you. Eat something thatalready comes sweet like orangesor mangos. The reason why re-fined sugar is questionable is be-cause it is empty. When you eatfood that is naturally sweet, youget all the protein, vitamins, miner-als, antioxidants, fiber and other
cal or processed the same way by the body.
High fruc-tose corn syrup is an industrialfood product and far from"natural" or a naturally occur-ring substance. It is extractedfrom corn stalks through a se-cret process.HFCS is cheaper than sugar because of the government farm bill corn subsidies. Products with HFCS are sweeter andcheaper than products made with cane sugar. Since there isthere is no chemical bond be-tween the sugars that make upHFCS, no digestion is required,so they are more rapidly ab-sorbed into your blood stream.So this screws with your liver,causes diabetes, increases appe-tite, weight gain, heart disease,cancer, accelerated aging, de-mentia and more. Also the body has to work harder to use HFCS.High doses of free fructose have been proven to literally punchholes in the intestinal lining.
3. HFCS contains contami-nants including
High fructose corn syrup(HFCS) has been demonized. And it should be. It is a highly processed form of corn sugar.
Do the knowledge to the US’s
relationship with corn and you will find out that this country mass produces corn to such a
degree, it’s cheaper for other
countries to buy corn from theUS that it is for them to buy it
from their own farmers. That’scrazy. I don’t want to ingest
politically controversial foods.HFCS, also prolong the shelf lifeof processed foods. The scariestaspect of HFCS is it turns off leptin. Leptin is a hormone thatsignals the brain that the body has enough fat on it. If one can-not make leptin, the brainthinks there is no fat and spursthe person on to eat more andmore in an effort to get the lep-tin signal that fat is pre-sent.
Don’t sleep. It saved hu-
mans during famines.The average American increasedtheir consumption of HFCS(mostly from sugar sweeteneddrinks and processed food) fromzero to more than 60 poundsper person per year.Here are 5 reasons you shouldstay way from any product con-taining high fructose corn syr-up.
1. Sugar in any form causesobesity and disease whenconsumed in pharmacolog-ic doses.
Cane sugar and highfructose corn syrup are indeed both harmful when consumed inpharmacologic doses of 140pounds per person per year. When one 20-ounce HFCSsweetened soda, sports drink ortea has 17 teaspoons of, we areconducting a largely uncon-trolled experiment on the hu-man species. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors consumedthe equivalent of 20 teaspoonsper year, not per day. In thissense, I would agree with thecorn industry that sugar is sug-ar. Quantity matters. But thereare some important differences.
2. HFCS and cane sugar areNOT biochemically identi-
Prolonged use of refined tablesugar or any of the uber-processed sugars out there cancause a significant amount of damage to your bodies. Inaddition to obesity and diabe-tes, you can develop immunesystem issues, endocrine is-sues, cancer, liver damage,anxiety, difficulty in concentrat-ing, loss of skin elasticity, hy-peractivity and much more.So am I saying you shouldnever eat a piece of cake ordrink lemonade? Of coursenot, but by decreasing theamount of processed foodsyou eat, will allow you theseoccasional splurges.
HFCS, no digestion is re-quired, so they are more rap-idly absorbed into your bloodstream. So this screws with your liver, causes diabetes,increases appetite, weightgain, heart disease, cancer,accelerated aging, dementiaand more. Also the body hasto work harder to use HFCS.High doses of free fructosehave been proven to literally punch holes in the intestinallining.
3. HFCS contains contam-inants including
mercury that are notregulated or measured by the FDA.
4. Many independentmedical and nutritionexperts DO NOT supportthe use of HFCS in ourdiet, despite the asser-tions of the corn indus-try.
5. HCFS is almost alwaysa marker of inferior food
