Sugar Is Toxic Here Is More Evidence

We have been saying for some time that sugar is toxic. Sugar calories turn to fat in the liver. They increase insulin resistance and increase the risk for diabetes, heart and liver disease. If you want to continue your old habits that include lots of sugary things in your diet this study may convince you to change to a healthier life style.

the lead author of this study, an endocrinologist, asked a dietician to change the meal plans of 43 obese children. The new diet maintained the same total calories but substituted processed carbohydrates for foods with added sugars. Added sugar was limited to 10% of their daily calories.
Within nine days the children's blood sugar levels had fallen by more than 50%. Their levels of triglycerides dropped by 33% and their "bad" cholesterol was also lower.

The rapidity with which these changes occurred astonishes us, but this study demonstrates that excessive sugar increases the risk of the metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that increase the risk for heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

Can You Prevent Heart Disease?

In our books we talk bout the importance of a good life style in maintaining health and preventing disease. Now for you stubborn non believers here are some interesting facts coming from a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Women who did not smoke, had a normal body mass index, exercised at least two and a half hours a week, watched an hour or less of TV a day, ate a healthy diet and limited alcohol to a drink or less a day had a 92% lower risk for coronary heart disease.

Think about this number. A 92% lower risk for coronary heart disease. Does this make it worthwhile to change your life style?
