Scientists Claims Sugar Is As Harmful As Alcohol And Cigarettes
Those of you who can’t do without sugar, this is a must read for you.
US scientists are claiming that, Sugar is so harmful to public health it should be controlled like alcohol and cigarettes.
Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, said last week that the public’s excessive consumption of sugar is not only contributing to a global obesity pandemic but also is critically altering people’s hormones, metabolism and blood pressure and causing “significant damage to the liver.”
In an article titled: “The Toxic Truth About Sugar,” published in the journal Nature, the scientists said sugar consumption tripled worldwide over the past 50 years and now is contributing to 35 million deaths a year.
The researchers said the effects of consuming an excess of sugary foods and drinks mimic the effects of drinking too much alcohol which, they pointed out, is made from distilling sugar.
