Are you addicted to it? Consuming refined white sugar is one of the worst things we can do for our immune system, weight, and total health. Many holistic doctors say white sugar is a killing you. This may be overly simplistic, but it does sum up refined sugar’s impact on the physical body. Not all sugars are unhealthy. Certain sugars have minimal negative impact and remarkable health benefits. However the refined white sugar that most people use every day is harmful even in small amounts. Refined sugar suppresses the immune system. It has been shown to decrease the vitality and number of white blood cells, limiting the body’s ability to respond to invaders. It also depresses the body’s energy field and makes the blood acidic. Both of these make the body more susceptible to toxins, bacteria and viruses. Sugar also feeds bacteria such as candida and yeast. Refined sugar hits your bloodstream hard, severely impacts blood sugar levels, decreases digestive enzymes, increases body weight, and negatively affects the pancreas. Found in most soft drinks, candy, sauces, salad dressings, baked goods and thousands of other prepared foods, refined sugar can be very difficult to avoid unless you are fixing your own food from scratch. If you want to experience ultimate health as God designed for your body, avoid refined sugar!
