Refined Sugar: The True Harmful Effects
You add it to your morning cup of coffee or tea. You bake it into pastries, cakes, and cookies. You even sprinkle it all over your breakfast cereal or your oatmeal.
But that’s not all. It’s also hidden in many of our favorite “treats” that people consume on a daily basis, such as sodas, fruit juices, candies, ice cream, almost all processed foods, and even condiments like ketchup.
But how exactly does sugar work in our body, how much sugar is acceptable and what are the side effects of eating too much sugar on people’s health?
The average American today consumes an excess amount of sugar on a regular basis from processed foods and beverages. Refined sugar can be found in a majority of our favorite snacks. Excessive levels of sugar in the blood can however lead to insulin resistance, kidney damage and eventually, diabetes.
