How Sweet it is...
Sugar is well, something we know is not good for us.
It causes all sorts of health problems not to mention it is fungi and cancer's main food source.
Sugar is loaded into your soft drinks, fruit juices, sports drinks, and hidden in almost all processed foods—from bologna to pretzels to Worcestershire Sauce.
I often hear, "I don't eat a lot of sugar."
Read your labels lately?
Sugar has been disguised now in so many ways. If you are eating food from a box, can, wrapper, bag, freezer section, carton.....you can bet it has some form of sugar in it.
You can find the obvious sources of sugar on a label but here are other names that just mean one thing.
Cane juice crystals
Corn syrup solids
Dehydrated Cane Juice
Evaporated cane juice
Fruit juice concentrate
High-fructose corn syrup
1. 1 tsp of sugar can produce a million colonies of fungi!
2. Sugar can reduce white blood cells by 50% up to 5 hours after ingestion!
Read your labels! Take out your favorite cereal right now and find all the sources of sugar.
You might be quite surprised at what you find.
