Of all the foods we eat today, refined sugar is considered one of the most dangerous.
… In 1997, Americans consumed 7,3 billion pounds of sugar. Americans spent $23,1 billion on sugar and gum. The average American ate 27 pounds of sugar and gum in the same year – which is equivalent to about six regular-sized chocolate bars a week.
…The consumption of processed foods (which have added sugar) costs Americans more than $54 billion a year in dentist bill payments, so the dental industry profits enormously from the public’s programmed craving for sugary foods.
…Today we have a nation that is addicted to sugar. In 1915, the average consumption of sugar (yearly) was 15 to 20 pounds per person. Today, each person annually consumes an amount of sugar equal to his/her weight, plus more than 20 pounds of corn syrup.
There is a circumstance that makes the picture even more terrible – some people do not eat sweets at all, and some people eat sweets much less than the average weight, and this means that A certain percentage of the population consumes much more refined sugar than their body weight. The human body cannot tolerate such a large amount of refined carbohydrates. In fact, such abuse leads to the fact that the vital organs of the body are destroyed.
… Refined sugar contains no fibers, no minerals, no proteins, no fats, no enzymes, just empty calories.
…Refined sugar is stripped of all nutrients and the body is forced to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes. If you continue to eat sugar, acidity develops, and in order to restore balance, the body needs to extract even more minerals from its depths. If the body lacks the nutrients used to metabolize sugar, it cannot properly dispose of toxic substances.
These wastes accumulate in the brain and nervous system, which accelerates cell death. The blood stream becomes congested with waste products, and as a result, symptoms of carbohydrate poisoning occur.
