Is There a Link Between Sugar & Disease?

I found a pretty remarkable video online that I think really articulates a lot of what I’ve been wanting to share for a very long time, all compiled into a 45-minute piece of staggering information about the connection between sugar with consumer wellness and how industry associations and food manufacturers place it in food products in quantities that are pretty surprising to most consumers.

The Secrets of Sugar is a powerful documentary that discusses the sugar industry, research based on sugar consumption and what consumers are up against when eating the typical diet of processed foods where additional sugar is pretty hidden. They discuss a possible connection between high sugar consumption to fatty liver, diabetes, cancer and even possibly Alzheimer’s. 

I’d love to read your comments about this documentary at the end of this post.

    Its really informative and something that we should act on.

    Jazak Allahu Khairan for sharing this.

  5. For the past few years and for personal health reasons I’ve been reading and doing my on research on this. It’s pretty astounding and turns a lot of common health knowledge (eat fat = get fat/heart disease etc.) completely on its head. I think there’s a lot more awareness recently on this problem, but unfortunately it’s still quite skewed toward processed sugar rather than carb content as a whole, but the fact is that sugar is sugar whether it’s table sugar or from fruit, the only difference being how much fiber comes along with it to slow the release of insulin.

  6. However, this scene changed when more programmers became aware of virus programming and started building viruses that manipulated and
    destroyed data on infected computers. However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click
    search engines offer some excellent traffic at a
    more reasonable price. Make certain that the payment gateway you are making use of, permits
    similar languages as the remaining of the web pages so that they can match well together.
