Next to cigarettes, sugar is the fastest thing that will age you. Sugar demineralises your body, pulls calcium from your bones, causing osteoporosis, it damages your immune system, leads to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, throws off your hormones, fries your pancreas and clogs your arteries because unused glucose becomes saturated fat and cholesterol which is stored in your arteries, leading to high blood pressure and clots. Sugar turns into fat in our bodies. Even worse, sugar is rocket fuel for disease, viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungus, mould, yeast and anything that grows… including cancer cells. It causes your skin to wrinkle. Sugar causes inflammation in every cell in the body. If you see freckles or brown spots on your skin then this means the sugar is damaging your respiratory and reproductive organs. If you eat anything sweet (including honey, agave, sweet fruits etc), it’s advisable to add cinnamon, which lessens the impact of sugar on the body by smoothing out blood glucose (sugar) levels. Cutting out sugar can reverse diabetes type 2!
