Sugar the Unlikely Killer: 10/19/2012

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And will kill you  

Sugar the evil that we all love. Though it will never initially kill you, it might aid in the process. People don't love rapists, child molesters, murderers, but they do love sugar. Why is this? Well the human body runs primarily on carbs and fats for energy. The human body knows that sugar will give it quick and easy energy. That is one of the reasons why our bodies crave sugary foods. But don't give into temptation. Sugar is linked to foods with empty calories like soda. Empty calories = foods with little to no nutritional value. Meaning all you get is calories and very few vitamins and minerals. Sugar is directly connected to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and is the primary food source for cancer cells. So, yes, sugar will aid in the spreading and feeding of cancer cells. It is time to start limiting your sugar intake. Stop drinking sugary sodas. Take care of your life. Take care of your health. Say no to sugar. It probably wouldn't pass the FDA today if it were up for review, so why would you consume it daily or even hourly?
