I understand the general drift of the message. Excessive sugar consumption fuels cancer and also weight gain. For many Americans it might seem like
mission impossible to eliminate as much sugar as possible and we do need glucose. I did end up losing about 20 pounds over a 2 year stretch reducing
the amount of high fructose corn syrup and excessive sugar by reducing soda consumption and foods with lots of sugar. I think the part missing is
excessive amounts. Most Americans do not need as much sugar as they get in all their food. Caffeine even in soda can have withdrawal or addictive
effects if you reduce the amount consumed too quickly. I read you can have sugar withdrawal effects too. I never tried to eliminate all excess
sugar. I believe in moderation but if eliminating all certain foods worked for you, good job.
If you have a headache because you didn't get your caffeine fix, it's harder to give up that last little bit of soda. I did for a while but then
drank some and got back in the habit. I also read the fatter you are, the better chance you have of getting cancer in general or a number of other
health issues. I believe that is directly related to excess sugar and excess calories.
