Why sugar is killing you:
-It’s added to foods without your consent
-Its marketing targets children, leading to childhood obesity
-It is addictive so it is added to foods/drinks that don’t need it
-High sugar diets can lead to insulin resistance. This condition is one of the hallmarks of obesity and overweight humans everywhere. If you consume too much sugar, you’re bound to experience hypoglycemia, commonly referred to as your “sugar crash.” This leaves your body craving more sugar – and the addictive cycle continues.
-Food tastes great w/o added sugar! Cleanse your tastebuds
-Drinks are often the worst culprit for added sugar
-Higher glucose levels are associated with lower memory and reduced brain microstructure.
-Higher glucose levels may be a risk factor for dementia
