All cells in your body consume sugar (glucose) as fuel, which is absolutely necessary for the body to function properly. However, many of us are eating much more refined sugar than we were ever designed to eat.
All carbohydrates (sweet and starchy) are broken down into glucose, the simplest form of a sugar. These glucose molecules are absorbed into the blood, raising blood sugar levels. There is a compelling amount of research which links excess sugar in the diet (resulting in high levels of insulin and insulin growth hormone) with cancer cell growth.
Forget your spoonful of sugar, Mary Poppins.
Sugar might seem sweet, but the overconsumption of refined sugars is anything but. Stack the odds in your favour by being sugar savvy!
