FACT: The human body doesn't need SUGAR. It makes its own. Thank you!
FACT 2: SUGAR rich foods contain very low nutritional value.
FACT 3: SUGARY foods are enzyme poor, making the body unable to process is well.
FACT 4: SUGARY foods, when processed convert mainly to fat, taking along any LOVE aka added chemicals with them, and storing it. To be used another
day, or perhaps poisoning YOU!
FACT 5: If it look, smells, and behaves like poison, it IS most likely poison.
As for regulation, not sure.
But I dare anyone to challenge those FACTS.
edit on 2-2-2012 by BBalazs because: (no reason given)
FACT 1: Every system of the body can survive without glucose(the eventual metabolic product of the breakdown of carbohydrates, and "sugar") by the
body's production of ketone bodies from protein catabolism. Every system except the CNS(brain). The brain runs on glucose, and their is no
substitute. If you consume absolutely no sugar ever you will slip into a coma, and die. It doesn't ake much, but you must consume some. (about 20-30
grams a day.)
FACT 2: The sugar content of food has no bearing on its nutrient density. Yes soda has no nutritional value, and is very high in sugar content, but
fruit also has a high frucose(sugar) content, but is fairly nutrient dense.
FACT 3: Refer back to fact #2. Sugars are used to create ATP to make energy to make enzymes during anabolism.
FACT4: Sugary foods convert mostly to GLUCOSE, which causes an insulin spike which causes storage, and use of the faster metabolizing glucose first,
and storage of all the other stuff. (proteins, and fats, which are slower, and take more energy to metabolize.)
FACT 5: Then you must never ingest anything into your body ever again! Everything is a poison at the correct dose, and route of administration. If you
drink too much water it will kill you.
As for regulation. HELL NO! We are on the slippery slope with this BS already. 15 years ago when they started in on smokers we all joked that someday
they would regulate everything, air, sunlight, and water. Today it isn't a joke anymore. They are seriously looking at doing just that! Sugar is the
most basic nutrient your body needs. We crave it because we are hardwired in our primitive brain to do so. Concentrated sugar used to be an extreme
rarity in our available food sources, so we are wired to seek it out, and consume it whenever available. In our modern world it is simply easily
available, but our wiring hasn't caught up yet. Yes, we over consume, but having the government step in to regulate it is a TERRIBLE idea. If your
physicaI output is enough you can eat a lot of sugar because it is fast easily available energy source. If you are sedentary you can't eat as much
without storing the other stuff. But you cannot live without it. I would rather deal with the consequences of too much freedom, than the tyranny of
none. Now hand me that ice cream, and leave me alone.
