Green greeting to all and thank you for reading our blogs! Each blog will be on a topic that affects humanity and comes from countless hours of research with a splash of opinion. Our blogs are to inform and spark an awareness in each of our readers.
To bee a sweetie doesn't mean that you have to jump head first into the sugar bowl; in fact we suggest doing the exact opposite as does the CDC (center for disease control) the USDA ( united states department of agriculture) HHC ( us department of health and human services) and Live long live strong.com ; some of the publics most trusted sources. The CDC found in 2001-2004 Americans consumed more than 22 teaspoons of sugar daily and that was 8 years ago, just imagine how the numbers have increased. The Us Dietary guidelines issued in 2010 made a reccomendation of limiting the consumption of foods and beverages with added sugar to fewer than 3, 12 oz cans of soda per week at the most.
We often hear the phrase its not what you eat its how much, well, in the case of sugar its both. The trouble starts by taking in the "empty calories" this is when the food has more calories than nutritional value offsets, which often happens when consuming what we like to call "bad sugars". According to the research most sugar comes from a natural source. Sweeteners ending in"ose" originate from either a fruit, vegetable, or grain and before processing still has some nutritional value. It is when they are chemically processed that they loose vital vitamins and mineral and consumption becomes a health hazard leading to diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
