Does sugar really kill you?

Does sugar really kill you?

  There are thousands of articles that talk about the cultivation of sugar beet and also sugar cane, 
including articles that talked about the famous shameful story of the slave trade between Europe, West Africa, and the Caribbean.
like we said there are a lot of books and articles giving the technical details of sugar-refining and the manufacture of sugar-containing food and drinks.


Does sugar really kill you?

it is really hard to gather information about sugar as food. How many people eat a small amount of sugar and how many people eat more than average? Who are the big consumers and who are the small consumers and what are the largest and smallest amounts consumed? What would happen if we stop taking sugar for ever? and what if we ate quite large amounts?

when (Pure, White and Deadly) was published, some research there showed that sugar in our diet might be involved in the production of several conditions, including not only tooth decay and overweight but also diabetes and heart disease. Since that time research has produced new evidence that shows that sugar is implicated in these sicknesses but before going any further, I should emphasize that I am talking about the sugar produced from beet and cane. which is called centrifugal sugar.

 Who Eats Sugar And How Much?

Who Eats Sugar, And How Much? People look at me incredulously when I say that there are now many parts of the world where the average person (child, woman, and man)  is eating more than 50 kg of sugar a year.  

Negative effects of sugar:

  •      For men :

 For men,  American  Heart  Association  (AHA) has recommended that the average consumption of sugar is 150  calories per day which is about 37.5  g. An increase in this amount can lead to lot of problems in men like increased estradiol level, decrease in testosterone level.

  •     For women :

For women,   AHA American  Heart  Association recommends an average consumption of sugar to be  100 calories per day which is equivalent to  25  g,  however,  higher consumption of sugars will be affecting their health with frequent occurrence of ailments for example breast cancer.

  High  intake  of  sugars, both  in  premenopausal  as  well  as  post-menopausal
women lead to higher breast density.  Excess of sugar intake in women, in the family way, causes toxemia and even influences production and strength of muscle of their offsprings.  Lactating women also exhibit a similar response to excess sugar intake.  It may also increase neural tube defects in embryos, and more so in adolescent mothers.    It also affects premenstrual syndrome (PMS),   a   hormonal imbalance associated with women craving for sugar.  The latter worsens the situation in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome  (PCOS)  due to a rise in insulin levels.  The latter may stimulate the androgen receptors and blocks egg release from the follicle,  and symptoms of hair growth on the face, arms, legs, head, and acne are observed.  Excess consumption of sugar in prediabetic and diabetic women even causes pancreatic cancer and  brain decay.

  •     For children :

A  child who has no craving for sugar is rare as a high intake of sugars (and their products), is common in this age group.  It increases the negative effects like Juvenile delinquency,   hypersensitivity,   anxiety, incapability of concentration,   increases in adrenalin level,  decreased learning capacity, and less of drinking of milk.


we all know that sugar is one of the important ingredients our in food. We also know that eating sugar activates what we call “feel-good hormone” of the brain but on another side, it can even make you addicted to it. No matter how does sugar makes our food taste, it has a lot of negative effects on human beings, especially its excess consumption which over weighs its positive effects on our health. Not only for a diabetic even in non-diabetic persons but excess intake of sugars is also really harmful, more so for the women. So, one should not only be careful while consuming an excess amount of sugar in one’s diet but it is better to avoid it.
