Refined Sugar is Damaging to the Body!
Refined sugar is lethal when ingested by humans because it provides empty calories. In addition, sugar is worse than nothing because it drains and leeches the body of precious vitamins and minerals through the demand it makes on one’s entire system to digest, detoxify and eliminate from the body.

One of sugar's major drawbacks is that it raises the insulin level, which inhibits the release of growth hormones, which in turn depresses the immune system. This is not something you want to take place if you want to avoid disease.

An influx of sugar into the bloodstream upsets the body's blood-sugar balance, triggering the release of insulin, which the body uses to keep blood-sugar at a constant and safe level. Insulin also promotes the storage of fat, so that when you eat sweets high in sugar, you're making way for rapid weight gain and elevated triglyceride levels, both of which have been linked to cardiovascular disease. Complex carbohydrates tend to be absorbed more slowly, lessening the impact on blood-sugar levels.

Sugar taken every day produces a continuously over-acid condition and more and more minerals are required from deep in the body in the attempt to bring the pH of the body back in balance. As a last resort, in order to protect the blood, so much calcium is taken from the bones and teeth leading to osteoporosis.

Excess sugar affects every organ in the body. Initially, it is stored in the liver in the form of glucose (glycogen). Since the liver’s capacity is limited, a daily intake of refined sugar (above the required amount of natural sugar) soon makes the liver expand like a balloon. When the liver is filled to its maximum capacity, the excess glycogen is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids. These are taken to every part of the body and stored in the most inactive areas: the belly, the buttocks, the breasts and the thighs.

When these comparatively harmless places are completely filled, fatty acids are then taken distributed among active organs, such as the heart and kidneys. These organs start to slow down, and their tissues degenerate and turn to fat. Due to the reduced ability of these organs, an abnormal blood pressure is created.

Problems Associated With Sugar Intake
Refined sugar can invade the lymphatic and circulatory systems, changing the quality of the red blood cells. The immune system is affected, as the body becomes limited, so we cannot respond optimally to attacks whether it is mosquitoes or microbes. Other health problems that can be caused by sugar include:

• Sugar can suppress the immune system
• Sugar can upset the body's mineral balance
• Hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, concentration difficulties, and crankiness in children
• Sugar can produce a significant rise in triglycerides
• Sugar can cause drowsiness and decreased activity in children
• Sugar can reduce helpful high density cholesterol (HDLs)
• Sugar can promote an elevation of harmful cholesterol (LDLs)
• Sugar can cause hypoglycemia
• Sugar contributes to a weakened defense against bacterial infection
• Sugar can cause kidney damage
• Sugar can increase the risk of coronary heart disease
• Sugar may lead to chromium deficiency
• Sugar can cause copper deficiency
• Sugar interferes with absorption of calcium and magnesium
• Sugar can increase fasting levels of blood glucose
• Sugar can promote tooth decay
• Sugar can produce an acidic stomach
• Sugar can raise adrenaline levels in children
• Sugar can lead to periodontal disease
• Sugar can speed the aging process, causing wrinkles and grey hair
• Sugar can increase total cholesterol
• Sugar can contribute to weight gain and obesity
• High intake of sugar increases the risk of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
• Sugar can contribute to diabetes
• Sugar can contribute to osteoporosis
• Sugar can cause a decrease in insulin sensitivity
• Sugar leads to decreased glucose tolerance
• Sugar can cause cardiovascular disease
• Sugar can increase systolic blood pressure
• Sugar can cause depression

• Sugar can increase the body's fluid retention
• Sugar can cause hormonal imbalance
• Sugar can cause hypertension
• Sugar can cause headaches, including migraines
• Sugar can increase insulin responses in those consuming high-sugar diets compared to low sugar diets
• Sugar increases bacterial fermentation in the colon

• Sugar causes food allergies
• Sugar can cause free radical formation in the bloodstream.
• Sugar can cause toxemia during pregnancy

• Sugar can overstress the pancreas, causing damage
• Sugar can cause atherosclerosis
• Sugar can compromise the lining of the capillaries
• Sugar can cause liver cells to divide, increasing the size of the liver
• Sugar can increase the amount of fat in the liver
• Sugar can increase kidney size and produce pathological changes in the kidney

Sugar can increase delta, alpha and theta brain waves, which can deter clear thinking
