Do you still think sugar isn’t that bad for you? Perhaps you’re not convinced yet that it’s harming your body to any significant degree. I used to think that a few years ago.

I was a sugar junkie. I was one of those really unhealthy “fit” people. I worked out alot, lifted weights, surfed, ran, played basketball and hiked but I ate garbage. Fortunately I changed my ways when I was 27 so I didn’t do that much collateral damage.

I would eat bread, tons of chocolate chip cookies, chocolate muffins, candy, shakes (mostly from In N’ Out), fruit drinks, pizza, pasta to my hearts content. Having been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy when I was 15 I should have been better at taking care of my heart.

Like most people I didn’t see any connection between health (or particularly organ health) and diet.

I’m sure by now you’re aware that you need to be limiting your intake of sugar, or else you wouldn’t have found this article. Let me preface this by saying that not all sugars are bad. Sugars are made up of chemical structures known as saccharrides.

Some of the common sugars we are used to are:

Cellulose, glycogen, dextrin, starch, polysaccharides, lactose, maltose, sucrose, disaccharides, galactose, fructose, glucose and monosaccharides.

The problem is that health minded people will typically replace chemical sugars with natural ones like, honey, agave nectar, grade b maple syrup, xylitol and yacon root syrup. The problem is that even these natural sugars can raise your insulin levels.

Green leaf stevia is the best choice for a sugar replacement that won’t raise your glycemic index in your bloodstream.

Long chain sugars like polyshacharrides actually taste bitter and can be one of the best medicines on earth. Polysachharides can be found in things like aloe vera gel (fresh and cut from the plant) and in mushrooms.

Since you’re probably not eating these types of medicinal foods (polyshacharrides – long chain sugars), you’re probably really addicted to plain old white sugar or products with cane sugar in them. The cravings can be overwhelming. Trust me, I’ve been there.

There is only a certain amount of sugar that should be present in the blood stream at any given time. About 1 gram is what was determined. But let’s say that you eat something that has 14 grams of sugar in it. Your body is able to deal with 1 gram but what does it do with the other 13?

This is what is causing many of the diseases of our day.

The problem is carbohydrates. Many people think that they don’t eat candy or high fructose corn syrup (much of which is genetically modified) so they’re okay. They don’t understand that many of these un-digestible grains raise sugar and insulin levels like crazy.

Here are a list of some of the word offender foods:

  • Candy
  • Any softdrink or fruit juice
  • Any product with high fructose corn syrup
  • Breads
  • Cookies
  • Crackers
  • Chips
  • Cake
  • Pasta
  • Pizza
  • Flour or corn tortillas
  • Any product containing gluten
  • Fruit in general (it’s the healthiest of these choices)
  • Bananas
  • Seedless watermelon
  • Seedless grapes
  • Dates
  • Mango
  • Any dried fruit
  • Any grain

That pretty much cuts out about 90% of the american diet. No wonder it’s SAD (standard american diet). To add insult to injury, when white bread is processed they remove the natural iodine from the bread (which controls the thyroid gland and helps regulate hormone levels in the body) and actually add in the chemical bromide (sometimes called bromine) which further decreases iodine levels in the body.

They do this because Americans like how white bread looks rather than brown looking bread.

If you’re on thyroid medication or have thyroid issues, the first thing I’d do is get off of any white flour product as this is robbing your body of one of the most essential minerals for life, iodine.

To remove iodine from bread is one thing. Then to replace it with something that actually steals whatever existing iodine you have left is another.

At this point, I’d look into supplemental iodine until you can get back on track with regulating your thyroid gland.

I would strongly suggest you take a look at the work of these three individuals:

Dr. Jonathan Wright
Dr. Datis Kharrazian
Dr. Mark Starr

Here are the reasons I’m doing everything I can do wean myself off of sugar. Currently I do not eat any grains whatsoever. I also don’t eat any processed sugars like candy or soda.

A couple of books I would recommend in this regard would be:

Candida

People have a misconception about candida albicans. They think that candida is somehow the enemy. It’s not. We simply have an excess of the bad bacteria in our bodies (mostly in our gut). Candida eats up the sugar (or toxins, heavy metals, poisons, undigested food etc) in order to protect the pancreas from producing too much insulin. If the pancreas produced too much insulin we’d in really bad shape.

Eating too much sugar will cause cell die off in the body and the job of the fungus (candida) is to eat up this dead material in the body. When this happens you’ll get gas, bloating, eczema, psoriasis, yeast infections, rashes, hypoglycemia, stomach irritation and so on.

Your body thinks it’s dying…

The list of symptoms produced by candida is very long. But most notably lots of people like Dr. Tullio Simoncini from Italy has said that cancer is really a fungus, as is candida. There seems to be a connection (at this point there’s debate about how much) between cancer and fungus (candida).

We now know that excess carbohydrates in any form turn to sugar in the body. This means we need to be aware of foods like bread, pasta, wheat, cereal, grains, crackers, chips, cookies, cakes, pies and pizza. The list of foods made from wheat products or grains is endless as well.

All these high carbohydrate foods turn to sugar in the body and feed this harmful bacteria which causes candida to proliferate.

Heart Disease

Heart disease and heart related issues definitely have a correlation to excess sugar intake which result in sky high insulin levels. All of this seems to create high levels of inflammation in the bloodstream. This inflammation travels throughout the body and most notably inside the arteries of the heart.

What happens is that this inflammation causes tiny microscopic tears in the walls of the arteries surrounding the heart. The response in your body is to create cholesterol to patch up the microscopic tears (think of it being like a band-aid covering a small cut on the skin) inside the arteries.

The more sugar we eat, the more inflammation is created, and the more your body has to produce cholesterol to patch these tears up inside your arteries.

Cholesterol is not the problem.

Then the arteries become blocked and blood can’t get through (all the while you can’t feel a thing) and then out of the blue you suffer from a heart attack at 45 years old.

It happens all too often.

The doctors see elevated cholesterol levels and assume you’re eating too much cholesterol in your diet. Then they put you on cholesterol lowering medications like a statin (assuming you live through the first heart attack) to thin your blood and lower cholesterol levels artificially.

If you’re a man, and you lower cholesterol levels too low, then you can’t make hormones. Without hormones, you can’t get an erection. Now they have to put you on Viagra.

Can you see the cycle?

Hmm….I wonder if this is all done on purpose?

If you don’t get off the sugar, the inflammation in your arteries still happens even though you now have lower cholesterol levels.

It’s like you’re still cutting yourself with a knife but you’re just putting less band-aids on.

It’s the sugar that’s the problem the entire time, not the cholesterol.

The Sugar / Cancer Connection

According to many leading health researchers, cancer cells have 7 times the amount of receptor sites on them for insulin than normal cells. Even conventional doctors will tell a patient that cancer seems to proliferate on a high sugar diet.

If you want to feed cancer cells (which have a fungal component – fungus feeds on sugar as well) and cause them to grow, either eat a very high sugar diet, or do a biopsy. A biopsy of a cancer legion will on a microscopic level cause the mass or tumor to break apart in the bloodstream and cause the cancer to spread.

In any event, a high sugar diet will eventually lead to cancer. Cancer cells are simply natures way of walling off toxins, poisons and candida in little tumor type trash bags in order to protect the rest of the body from being harmed by these tumors.

Unfortunately people unknowingly feed the cancer cells by eating a high sugar diet and the trash cans (tumors) keep growing and ultimately prevent vital organs from working properly. During all this trauma the immune system (which is in a very weak state to even allow cancer to begin growing) is on high alert trying to detox the cancer but it’s being destroyed by chemotherapy and radiation all at the same time.

It’s a sad cycle people endure because they didn’t want (or know) to stop eating bread, snickers bars and coke every day.

Inflammation

We’ve already seen how inflammation in the body can result in scarring in the arterial lining near the heart but inflammation from sugar can cause nano bacteria (microscopic organisms) to grow in your body.

These types of organisms can cause auto immune diseases (sometimes called cell deficient L-Form Bacteria) like rheumatoid arthritis, allergies and more. They like to congregate in the areas of the body that have low circulation and are the farthest away from the heart.

That means they usually attack joints and knuckles.

Sugar causes inflammation all throughout the body in very high levels.

Diabetes

There are millions of people diagnosed with diabetes today. The main causitive factor for diabetes and all blood sugar issues is diet, nutrition and lifestyle. When a western nation would conquer any indigenous population they would introduce white sugar and white flour into their diets and as a result diabetes would flourish within 40 years of this happening.

People cannot control their sugar intake and they’re suffering from diabetes as a result. Man was never meant to be obese, unable to move, sticking themselves with insulin shots 5 times a day.

God never designed us to live such a life.

Sugar is at the heart of diabetes issues in the world today. If somebody is struggling with diabetes I would point them to this book by Gabriel Cousins, called There Is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program.

The Tree Of Life put together an excellent documentary about how to cure diabetes in 30 days called Simply Raw. You can watch the trailer on our DVD page.

Accelerated Aging

Diabetes is itself a disease of accelerated aging. Sugar causes every organ in the body to become weaker all the while supressing the immune system of the body. The immune system (about 80% of which) is comprised of beneficial gut bacteria and flora in our digestive tract. Because sugar causes an over growth of bad bacteria, it causes the immune system to be over worked and ill equipped to function properly.

Meanwhile the background inflammation is eating up the body causing joint pain, stomach and digestive issues, skin wrinkles and fatigue.

Is it worth all the weird health problems just so that you can eat white bread every day?

The question really is how much do you value yourself and the ones around you in order to change?
