80 million Americans are not yet diagnosed as pre-diabetic (with impaired sugar tolerance). Insulin is a hormone that helps the body move sugar through the bloodstream to be used or stored. Insulin resistance is a condition that leads to high glucose levels. This can lead to chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Consumption of too many processed foods and grains is one of the leading causes. Vitamin D is important for fighting flu and cold symptoms. Vitamin D is responsible for 10% of our genes. It is essential in the prevention and treatment for osteoporosis and osteopenia, diabetes and other conditions.
Cholesterol by itself won’t tell you much about your risk of developing heart disease. More sophisticated indicators include HDL: Total Cholesterol, HDL: Triglycerides HDL. Gout can be caused by elevated levels of uric acid. Did you know that uric acid can be used to identify fructose toxicities? Over-consuming fructose can cause severe metabolic problems in your body. One by-product of fructose metabolism, uric acid, can be a problem. The latest research shows that uric acid levels are linked to blood pressure and cardiovascular risk. As you probably know, iron is essential for carrying oxygen throughout your body. Your cells will quickly die if they don’t get enough oxygen. Iron deficiency anemia is a condition where your body doesn’t have enough iron.
However, excess iron can build up in your tissues if you eat too many processed foods and take too many multivitamins. Too much iron can also cause dangerous free radicals to spread throughout the body, causing damage to the heart and cancer. One in five post-menopausal women have too high iron levels, leading to premature aging and death. Because your waist size is directly related to the amount of fat stored around your waistline (called “visceral fat” and “belly fat”), your risk of developing heart disease is more accurate than BMI. This type of fat is strongly associated with type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, as well as inflammation. An increased waistline can lead to insulin resistance, high bloodpressure, lipid imbalance, cardiovascular disease and thickening your heart walls.
Sugar Blues was a book written by William Duffy a few years back. He writes in the book about white sugar’s addictive qualities. He says that sugar is much like a drug, and the difference between sugar addiction or narcotic dependence is largely one-of-a-kind. How is sugar classified? Sugar is addictive because you can only eat one piece of sugary food. This creates a desire for more. Young children will cry or scream if they are given a piece of sugary food for the first time. Another sign that someone is addicted to sugar-containing foods is when they stop eating them ‘cold turkey’. All kinds of symptoms like headaches, fuzzy thoughts, vacant minds, depression, blurred vision, fatigue, strong cravings, blurred vision, and blurred vision can all start to appear. These withdrawal symptoms are designed to encourage the person to re-engage their sugar addiction.
Sugar has a long history that dates back to 327BC when records indicate that raw sugar was used by Indians. In the 16th century, sugar was brought to America by the Spaniards. A refining process was developed around 600 years ago. Refined sugar is made from crushed sugar cane. Once it has been filtered, it is boiled down to a syrup. As purifying agents, substances such as sulfur dioxide and milk of lime, carbon dioxide, charcoal derived from charred beef bones, and calcium carbonate have been used over the years in the refining process. Mmmmm, delicious.
Brown sugar is simply white sugar with varying amounts of molasses added back. A little caramel color is added to golden yellow sugar. The raw sugar is processed to retain a small amount of the molasses. Sugar falls under the food group carbohydrates. This addictive white death is considered a food. There are many sweet substances. Sugar, when combined with other ingredients, is enjoyable to eat. It provides instant fuel and provides energy, unlike proteins or fats that require complex digestion. Research on different ages has shown that babies have an instinctive desire to eat more sweets after they have tasted it. Children and adults, however, have an acquired taste for sweets. We want more sweetness when we have had it.
Studies show that sugar intake is linked to many health problems, including high blood sugar, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease. Sugar in all forms can cause the body to become extremely acidic. The body works best when it has a neutral pH. Different parts of the body have different levels of alkalinity. To test the pH of your saliva and urine, you can buy pH strips at a health food shop. Your saliva should be around 7.4 pH and your urine 6.9 pH. The pH chart can be found on the package. Before you put anything in your mouth, you should spit it into a clean spoon. This is done one hour before and two hours after eating. Please don’t put the pH paper on your tongue.
These chemicals can be toxic and should not go on your tongue. They can build up over time. Your urine will be acidic the first thing in the morning because it is flushing out acids from the night before. Your first urine test should be done two to three hours after your first meal. Sugar is an addictive food. It is devoid of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fiber, or protein. It has no calories, no vitamins, and a seductive, addictive taste that makes you want more. W.D. W.D. He claims that sugar increases blood pressure and is addictive. Sugar can be combined with animal fats like donuts to cause clogged blood vessels and increase the risk of bloodclots.
Ringsdorf also claims that sugar can make the blood thicker, making it more susceptible to clotting problems. The blood is a key component of your body’s defense system. Phagocytes, a type of white-blood cell that destroys foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses in your body, are called cells. A few teaspoons of sugar, such as in a cup coffee, can decrease the ability of these defense cells to do their job up to 25% according to tests. Consuming large amounts of ice cream and pie will stop phagocytes from performing their job. For 4 to 5 hours, your immune system will be completely wiped out by the pie and ice-cream. Avoid crowded elevators and crowded buses during flu season. Ringsdorf also suggests that you avoid drinking 683 ml of cola, which will cause your immune system to drop by 50% within 30 minutes. The effects will last for 4 to 5 hours.
