Consider sugar as poison.
Friday, December 17, 2010
Almost 24 million Americans have diabetes and record numbers are now pre-diabetic, some not even knowing they are borderline diabetics. Many Americans are at risk due to genetics, others are at risk from obesity. Americans consume sugar in excessive amounts and eat very little fiber.
Sugar exacerbates Bi-Polar Disorder, ADHD, and diabetes to name a few. Sugar can raise triglycerides and cholesterol, cause some cancers and feeds yeast infections. So why aren't Americans concerned about their sugar intake. Is it that they just don't care about themselves or their children? Take a look at the school lunch program in your area, the food is high in carbs, juices and chocolate milk high in sugar. Even French Fries has hidden sugar to make them more tasty. Get wise America, wake up and start complaining to our food companies about what they add to their products. If you consider sugar as poison, maybe you will start losing weight faster and become a healthier person.
