Really, how can something that tastes so good be bad for our body? The idea that consumption of sugar can have serious consequences is simply indigestible. Sweet as it may taste, the bitter truth is that the human body was never designed to handle the atrocities of sugar. Sugar strains the organs of the body and depletes the body of its nutrients. Sugar clogs the arteries, suppresses the immune system and stresses your pancreas. After years of thriving on sugar-laden goodies like cakes, pastries, soft drinks, chocolates; not to mention the innumerable cups of tea and coffee, the glands of the body give up.
Most nutritionists agree that the high use of sugar is the underlying cause of most forms of diseases. The reasons being sugary foods not only gratify our palate they satisfy our hunger too. Thus, they replace the nutritious foods and weaken our immune system. Apart from contributing to obesity and tooth decay, sugar is charged of raising cholesterol and triglycerides and thereby causing heart disease, increasing the risk of breast cancer, raising blood pressure, damaging the kidneys, causing migraine headaches, aggravating the symptoms of arthritis, causing gallstones, depleting the body of essential nutrients like B- complex chromium, copper, calcium and magnesium, causing menstrual irregularities, mood swings, anxiety and depression, hypoglycemia and acidity.
