Why Sugar Is So Bad For You

Go to the grocery store and you’ll find yourself surrounded by the deadly substance known as sugar. Refined especially, it is not good for anyone, and it’s considered a chemical. It contains nothing but empty calories and doesn’t contain any nutritional value whatsoever.

Unfortunately there will always be an argument as to whether all sugars are bad. For example, some foods naturally contain sugar and are considered carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are broken down by the body and turned into energy.

Foods like white rice, bread and potatoes are considered bad carbohydrates since they can cause health problems when they are not eaten in moderation.

Whole grains, fruits and some vegetables are considered good carbohydrates and can supply many of the nutrients that your body needs for survival.

However, what many people don’t realize is that even eating good carbohydrates can be just as deadly as bad ones if we don’t eat them in moderation.

Eating too many carbohydrates forces our body to store it as fat. In time that fat can lead to health problems such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.

But, the problems just don’t stop there. Eating too many sugary foods can slow the process of calcium and magnesium absorption in the body.

It can cause tooth decay, bleeding gums and bone loss. It can cause yeast infections and hypertension in children and even adults. It can also increase symptoms of chronic fatigue and Premenstrual Syndrome. It can even cause depression and cancer.

The bad news is people just can’t stop eating sugary foods. It’s addictive just like a drug. The good news is if you have children you can help them reduce their sweet-tooth cravings.

Start by slowly introducing your kids to fruits instead of cookies and vegetables instead of potato chips. Then offer them natural juices and water instead of sodas and other sugary drinks.

But, you should also set a good example yourself. If you’re eating cookies or cake or drinking soda, you shouldn’t expect your children to eat healthier when you’re not.

Instead, show them that you’re willing to do the same. Try trading your typical morning doughnut for a bowl of whole grain cereal with some fresh fruit. And the next time you go to the store, stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables and skip the process foods isles. After all, it’s your health we’re talking about!
