Sugar, sugar, sugar – I’m sick and tired of hearing about all the danger we inflict upon ourselves by consuming sugar. Everyone needs a little sweet once in a while. Like I’ve said before, I’m always looking at ways and means to live a little bit more naturally like eating organic foods when I can and using toxic free substances on my skin. Lately I’ve been thinking that some of the problems I have with my skin could be laid at the feet of sugar.
A little bit of research has revealed to me that sugar is in just about everything, from soft drinks, to alcohol, baked goods and even salad dressings which I’ve always thought were fairly healthy. It seems to me that medical experts and dietitians are saying that sugar is actually at the root of so many problems. High blood pressure, headaches, arthritis, heart disease and skin problems. Medical experts are telling us to not just cut down on sugar but to cut it out completely. They say sugar reduces immunity and that immune cells, when they are under the influence of sugar, aren’t able to fight off invaders and that sugar is also responsible for poor nutrient absorption. Please if anyone out there knows more and has cut sugar out of their lives, I want to hear from you.
