Some studies suggest that if sugar was a new product and currently seeking approval by the FDA, it would have a very difficult time clearing the process. Why? Because more and more science is revealing sugar to be an addictive substance.
Yup. Tests have shown the subjects experience binges and withdrawal symptoms.
Sugar as an illegal substance
If you think about it, the comparisons between refined sugar and illegal substances are uncanny:
- Many illegal drugs are referred to as sugar or candy, etc.
- Illegal drugs and sugar are both white, although refined sugar is bleached white by the use of pork bones.
- Refined sugar is manufactured in a way extremely similar to illegal drugs.
- The reaction of the body to sugar is echoed in the reaction of the body to an illegal drug.
- Sugar “addicts” think constantly, or obsess, about the substance or products containing the substance.
- Refined sugar is protected in front of Congress by well-paid political lobbyists.
The truth about sugar
Even if you could care less about the similarities of sugar as a drug, the truth about what sugar is can scare you silly:
Refined sugar contains no fiber, no minerals, no proteins, no fats, no enzymes, only empty calories. What happens when you eat a refined carbohydrate like sugar? Your body must borrow vital nutrients from healthy cells to metabolize the incomplete food. Calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium are taken from various parts of the body to make use of the sugar. Many times, so much calcium is used to neutralize the effects of sugar that the bones become osteoporotic due to the withdrawn calcium.
