CDC: Excess sugar increases risk of death

We knew it helped make us fat, but in a study released by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), excess sugar is also blamed for significantly increasing our risk of death from heart disease.

The study focused on refined sugar, which is found in non-diet soda, cakes, cookies and candy.

“The risk of cardiovascular disease death increases exponentially as you increase your consumption of added sugar,” says the study’s lead author, Quanhe Yang, a senior scientist with the CDC.

Neuropathologist Investigates the Link Between Beets & MS

Dr Raymond Sobel’s research focuses on the effects of a compound found in sugar beets called Azetidine-2-carboxylic acid (Aze). Sugar beets are used in meat and dairy products and their geographical use resembles that of MS incidence. If susceptibility to MS is due at least in part to exposure to a dietary component early in life, this will suggest ways to prevent and perhaps treat MS.

Avoiding Sugar for a Healthy Immune System

If you want to have a healthy immune system to improve the symptoms of an autoimmune disease, including myasthenia gravis, you must try to avoid certain foods, most notably—sugar.

Sugar

A recent U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) survey revealed that the average American consumes the equivalent of 160 pounds of sugar a year—that is, something like over 50-heaped teaspoons of sugar per person per day.

Avoid all white sugar, corn syrup, Aspartame and Nutrasweet©.

Sugar is one of the common toxic foods that stresses the immune system; it is not a health food by any stretch of imagination because it spells death in many ways:

Too much sugar may suppress your immune system and upset your body’s mineral balance, making it more acidic, which is the underlying cause of most disease.

Too much sugar consumption may cause blood sugar imbalance and food craving, leading to obesity.

Too much sugar may overburden your pancreas, rendering it incapable of clearing sugar from your blood efficiently. This sugar imbalance may potentially lead to diabetes.

Too much sugar intake may cause anxiety, irritability, nervous tension, and even depression due to depletion of your body’s B-complex vitamins and minerals, especially for those women progressing to menopause.

Too much sugar consumption may reduce your absorption of good cholesterol (HDLs), while increasing your bad cholesterol (LDLs).
