Sugar Dangers

Sugar Dangers are only second to Dairy products dangers in term of the damage it causes to your mind and body.

How Much Sugar Do You Eat?

Often when I ask clients how much sugar they eat, their answer is: "very little".

What many people think is meant by sugar consumption is the addition of sugar to tea, coffee or some food. This however only accounts for a small proportion of the sugar we ingest.

Have a look at the labels on virtually any tinned food and you may be surprised to find out that almost 100% of them contain sugar.

Check your bread ingredients, pre-prepared food from your supermarket, processed food, etc... Just about any food has sugar dangers added.

Sugar Dangers And Cancer

Breast Cancer #1 For Women

Drummed into my head by my teachers was:

Cancer Feeds On Protein And Grows On Sugar

German Otto Warburg, Ph.D., the 1931 Nobel laureate in medicine, confirmed: "Glucose is used as a fuel by Cancer".

Sugar has been known to encourage the development of the following cancers:

  • ovaries
  • breast
  • prostate
  • rectum
  • gall bladder
  • colon cancer, with an increased risk in women

Regular consumption of sugar is also linked to Parkinson and Alzheimer conditions.

Completely removing sugar from the diet of Cancer, diabetic or heart patients has led to amazing recovery.

If you currently suffer from Cancer, do yourself a favor and eliminate ALL sugars dangers from your diet. This will be a great help for your recovery.

The Four Sugar Types

  1. Complex sugars or polysaccharides (found in beans, vegetables and grains)
  2. Double sugars or disaccharides (found in cane sugar (sucrose) and milk (lactose)). These fall in the "Sugar Dangers" catergory.
  3. Simple sugars or monosaccharides (found in fruits (fructose) and honey)   
  4. Artificial sugar (known as sweeteners)

1- Polysaccharides

Found in beans, vegetables and grains.

These are fine to eat.

Polysaccharides are first decomposed by saliva in the mouth, then further down in the stomach and then completely digested in the duodenum and intestines.

Brown rice, grains, beans, vegetables are polysaccharides.

2- Disaccharides - The Very Bad Sugar

This is where the real sugar dangers reside.

Found in cane sugar (sucrose) and milk (lactose)

Disaccharide sugar is completely void of any useful nutrient.

White, brown, muscovado... All have the same detrimental effect on the body.

Stay away from them.

The sugar journey in your body:

When refined sugar enters the stomach, it causes what is known as a sugar reaction where the stomach is paralyzed. As little as a quarter teaspoon can cause this.

Since refined sugar is strongly alkaloid, the stomach will secrete an unusually high amount of acid to make balance. If this process is repeated over a long period of time, an ulceration of the walls of the stomach will occur.

Our blood normally maintains a weak alkaline condition, and when strongly alkaline sugar is introduced, the acid reaction takes place causing the bloodstream to become over acidic. Acidic blood is a breeding ground for disease.

To compensate for this our internal supply of minerals is mobilized so as to restore a normal balance. The minerals in our daily food and reserves should be sufficient to cope with the situation.

Osteoporosis & Sugar

Osteoporosis and sugar

When we consume sugar every day, this stock eventually runs out and we must then dig deep on our calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium stored in our bones and teeth.

If this carries on for a long time, the removal of calcium from the bones and teeth will cause decay and finally osteoporosis.

Ammonia Buffer

The body has various back up system when minerals are in short supply and the blood is acidic. One of them is called the “Ammonia buffer”. The kidneys start producing Ammonia which is a strong alkali (PH 9.25). This balances the PH once again.

Unfortunately, if the intake of sugar carries on, there will result a depletion of minerals from the bone and the teeth and the “Ammonia buffer” will eventually damage the kidneys with too much ammonia and acid.

Where will this sugar be stored?

Excess sugar is stored in various places within the body, first in the form of glycogen in the liver.

When the amount of glycogen exceeds the liver’s storage capacity of about 50g, it is then released into the bloodstream in the form of fatty acid

This is stored in the more inactive places of the body such as the buttocks, thighs and mid section.

Then if the intake of refined sugar is continued, this fatty acid will deposit around the heart and the kidneys. When the layer is thick enough, it will penetrate the organs themselves.

This dangerous sugar reaction of course weakens their normal function and when excessive enough causes their eventual stoppage.

Heart Disease & Sugar

This excessive intake of dangerous sugar in modern society can be seen in the increasing incidence of such degenerative diseases as heart disease.

Two out of five people in the US are now suffering from this.

Sugar Dangers On The Brain

Refined sugar also directly affects our thinking abilities through the destruction of the intestinal bacteria which are responsible for the creation of B-Vitamins necessary for the synthesis of glutamic acid which is directly involve in the mental activities carried on the brain.

A lack of this component can result in a lack of memory and ability to think clearly.

Dr Joseph Mercola wrote these comments on sugar dangers:

“Another reason to avoid sugar is to slow down the aging process. If you want to stay young it is very important to limit sugar to the smallest amount possible. It is the most significant physical factor that accelerates aging.

It is a negative fountain of youth. It does this by two mechanisms. The first is to actually attach itself to proteins in the body forming a new sugar-protein substance called advanced glycation end-products (AGEs).

The higher the AGE levels, the faster you are ageing. As this study points out, sugar also increases free radicals in the body which also accelerate the ageing process.”

A Personal Story

I used to teach alternative medicine at adult education centers in the UK.

I like waffles sweetened with rice syrup, but one night I made a mistake and bought a packet sweetened with honey (a strong form of sugar).

I could not put two sentences together during my 2 hour course. My words would not come out and I felt completely spaced out.

This sugar dangers warning to me made me understand how dangerous a substance it is.

3- Monosaccharides

Found in fruits (fructose) and honey.

This is easily converted in our body into glucose (blood sugar). As fruits are concerned, it is advisable to stick to local fruits. Local fruits to the UK are pears, apples, strawberries, any form of berries, cherries etc..

It is best to eat fruits when in season.

These belong to our environment and are easily digestible.

Sugar dangers from tropical fruits:

Unless you live in a tropical country, fruits such as bananas, oranges, pineapple, papaya, mangoes etc.. are sugar dangers if eaten regularly.

They are more difficult to excrete and will cause an accumulation of mucous in the upper respiratory track and affect the nervous system.

Honey

Honey is a strong sugar as I narrated in my story just above. It is part of what I call the sugar dangers food.

4- Artificial sugar (known as sweeteners)

There is nothing quite natural in most sweeteners and they are real sugar dangers.

Although sweeteners are used by most to lose weight, it is most interesting that The American Cancer Society (1986) documented the fact that persons using artificial sweeteners gain more weight than those who avoid them.

An amazing fact!

Aspartame.. This deadly sweetener

Aspartame

Aspartame is sold under the names of NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure.

It was discovered accidentally in 1965 by James Schlatter (a chemist) working for G D Serle Company. Schlatter was originally testing an anti-ulcer drug.

It was opposed by neuroscientist Dr John Olney and Consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974 over its safety and the fraudulent way the research was originally carried out.

Olney reported that aspartame affects the neurological process in humans. He claimed that it “excites or stimulates the neural cells to death”

It was eventually approved in 1981 for dry goods and in 1983 for carbonated drinks. This approval was once again strongly opposed by two FDA research scientists who highlighted the fraudulent testing of Aspartame by G D Serle Company.

Despite pleas from other research scientists such as Dr Woodrow Monte, Director of the Food Science and Nutritional Laboratory at Arizona State University, Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. of the FDA approved the use of aspartame in carbonated water in 1983.

Arthur Hull Hayes Jr then left the FDA to start a new rewarding position with … G D Serle public Relation Company.

Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Diseases Linked To The Use Of Aspartame

  • Memory loss
  • epilepsy
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • AIDS 
  • personality changes
  • slurred speech
  • dementia
  • headaches
  • vertigo
  • insomnia
  • numbness
  • hearing loss
  • rashes
  • loss or change of taste
  • anxiety attacks
  • seizures
  • blurred vision
  • hormonal problems
  • depression
  • hyperactivity
  • stomach disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • skin lesions
  • nausea
  • muscle cramping
  • MS (Multiple sclerosis),
  • joint pain
  • loss of energy
  • symptoms mimicking heart attacks
  • ear ringing (tinnitus) 
  • blindness and other eye problems

Satya Dubey, an FDA statistician, stated in 1981 that the reports on brain tumors suspected to be caused by aspartame was so “worrisome” that he refused to approve of NutraSweet.

In a two-year study conducted by the manufacturer of aspartame, twelve of the 320 rats fed a normal diet and aspartame developed brain tumors while none of the other rats had tumors.

It is interesting to note that the incidence of brain tumors in persons over 65 years of age has increased 67% between the years 1973 and 1990. Brain tumors in all age groups has jumped 10%.

Aspartame Consumer Safety Network, in an article from General Aviation News reported that  Michael Collins, former pilot, suffered from seizures whenever he drank diet soda. When he stopped using aspartame products, he remained seizure-free.

Some 600 pilots have disclosed having seizures whilst flying their plane. All due to aspartame.

Frightening isn’t it?

Saccharin

350 times sweeter than sugar.

Tested in Canada on rodents in 1977 and found to produce bladder tumors in abnormal quantities in the male.

An immediate ban was called but American Congress, pressured by consumer, demand put it back on the market with a health warning label.
