Refined sugar is addictive and can cause a variety of health problems when consumed on a regular basis. Sugar has no nutritional value and in fact it is actually an anti nutrient since the body must use stored minerals, enzymes and vitamins to processes it. Bacteria living in our intestines manufacture many B vitamins but too much sugar kills them which in turned depletes B vitamins and low immune function. Lower immune function opens the door to air infections in children and sickness in adults. Regular intake of sugar creates an acidic condition that quickly consumes the body’s minerals especially calcium. It also releases cortisol which is the fight or flight hormone that causes stress. Although derived from plants, sugar is man made substance that upsets the delicate balance of the body toward death treatment and that is why we should avoid it. If you like to learn more about why to eat organic food and how to live naturally you can read this informative book The Beginners Guide to Natural Living.
