Refined Sugar is a drug?
I know you are shocked, but the truth is that sugar is the devil.
(As in evil guy, red tail, knobby horns, enjoys hurting people, yeah, that’s the guy)
It is highly addictive, robs your body of nutrients and leaves you in a weakened state craving your next ‘fix’.
Sure sounds like a drug to me.
Dr. David Reuben, author of Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Nutrition says,
“White refined sugar-is not a food. It is a pure chemical extracted from plant sources, purer in fact than cocaine, which it resembles in many ways. Its true name is sucrose and its chemical formula is C12H22O11.The chemical formula for cocaine is C17H21NO4. Sugar’s formula again is C12H22O11.For all practical purposes, the difference is that sugar is missing the “N”, or nitrogen atom.”
Blood sugar, in the form of glucose, is the basic fuel for all brain operation and physical activity. When we eat a lot of sugar it causes imbalances in our mental states. Our glands struggle to regulate the sugar levels in our bodies with the release of insulin.
A whole host of problems – especially high adrenaline, which makes you feel anxious and panicked. For some people this may lead to panic attacks and for others it leads to violence.
In his book, Diet, Crime and DelinquencyDr. Alexander G. Schauss, states
“Many mental ward and prison inmates are “sugarholics” and erratic emotional outbreaks often follow a sugar binge.”
Refined sugar resembles a drug in that during the refining process everything of food value is removed!!
What remains is something so indigestible that your body has to rob itself of vital nutrients to assimilate this toxin!
White sugar has a drug like effect on the body and is especially dangerous in the quantities consumed by the average American.
Did you know the average American consumes thirty teaspoons of this deadly stuff a day? The scary thing is, the average healthy digestive system can only digest and eliminate from two to four teaspoons of sugar daily, without noticeable problems. (for a lot of people two to four teaspoons barely covers their morning coffee, let alone breakfast!)
And how about if you are not a coffee drinker and say enjoy a nice cold Cola to wake up?
One twelve ounce Cola has eleven teaspoons of sugar!
In fact, sugar is the leading additive to food in the U.S! No wonder we are a nation of obese sugar-addicted junkies! Sugar is just as habit-forming as any narcotic; and the way it is abused is a national disaster!
Sadly, almostall of the products we consume daily are loaded with sugar!
Sugar gives you a quick energy ‘high’ so to speak, due to the rise of your blood sugar level. When the body responds with a release of insulin however your energy and endurance suddenly drops. Making you crave your next ‘high’, and the vicious cycle continues!
So why is it in just about everything we eat?
Sugar manufacturers are aggressive in defending their product and have a strong political lobby which allows them to continue push a deadly food item that keeps the nation fat, tired, sick and obese. Much like the drug cartels they are motivated by money and will stop at nothing to convince the average consumer that what they are eating is ‘natural’ and ‘healthy’. Funny thing is 90% of what is ‘natural’ has been removed-what remains is a deadly toxin that will disrupt the functions of your body and leave you sick, tired, and wanting more.
And now the real test…
Try it for yourself!
Leave sugar out of your diet for a couple of weeks and see how you feel.
Please note however, if you don’t feel amazing in the beginning it only means you are probably having a withdrawal because of the drug addiction you have acquired.
