What is Sugar?

What is sugar? To be short and sweet, sugar is a refined carbohydrate. Is sugar bad for you? Without a doubt, yes it is.

In 2010, a medical journal announced that sugar “may” be bad for your heart. It wasn’t “just” more pounds to ruin your bikini, or more drilling to fix your rotting teeth. The medical societies were finally getting serious and thousands of good people with sweet tooths have proved it by dying.

Sugar is linked to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and premature aging, through the excess intake of refined carbohydrates.

Refined carbohydrates include (besides sugar) high fructose corn syrup, white flour, and all packaged and manufactured foods. The more of these refined carbohydrates you consume, the quicker you will age and develop age-related diseases.

Do not consume artificial sweeteners to avoid sugar’s aging processes. Sugar is bad for you but artificial sweeteners are equally bad, causing DNA damage and cancer.

People have joked about the proverbial “sweet tooth” for as long as I can remember. Think about the benign teasing the “sweet tooth label represents and realize that what it signifies is a person’s addition to sweets.

Do not be confused. Glutamates, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame (and its artificial relatives) and sugar are addictive. Is sugar bad for you? Yes it is. All manufactured sweets are bad for you.
