After reading this report about sugar, which is being undeniably linked to most of our modern day diseases. I think you will agree that this substance should be eliminated or at least reduced in our daily diet. For the sake of my readers I have purposely kept it as short as I could. There is vastly more research that has been done on this drug. But I think you should get the picture by reading this report.
I have been called a quack because of this page, so if you would like the proof that what is said below is true? I would go over to Amazon and get Nancy Appleton's 2001 book, Lick the Sugar Habit and read it. It's well researched and you will find all the studies you need in the appendix to prove everything written here is the truth.
All Italics are mine.
In addition to throwing off the body's homeostasis, excess sugar may result in a number of other significant consequences. The following is a listing of some of sugar's metabolic consequences from a variety of medical journals and other scientific publications.
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in studies done in 1973 and 1997. Sugar was linked to a suppressed immune system.
In a study done in 1933 and printed in "Progressive Food and Nutritional Science". Sugar upsets the mineral relationships in the body.
In the "Journal Of Child Psychology" 1986. Sucrose can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness in children. Can you say attention deficit disorder.
Researchers S. Scanto and J. Yudkin in the Post Graduate Medicine Journal performed a study on human volunteers, 1969 discovered. Sugar has been linked to a significant rise in triglycerides.
In the "Dental Survey" 1976. Sucrose contributes to the reduction in defense against bacterial infection (infectious diseases). Immune system troubles in the body.
The New York Academy of Science and the Scientific American in May of 1987 discovered. Sucrose causes a loss of tissue elasticity and function, the more sugar you eat the more elasticity and function you loose. Looks like premature aging due to immune system overload.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 1986 and 1993 discovered. It is responsible for a reduction in high density lipoproteins.
Dr. A Kozlovsky in a study in June of 1986. Sugar leads to chromium deficiency which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Chromium has been found to regulate blood sugar levels in the blood.
At Tohoku School of Medicine, October 1982, and printed in the Holistic Health Digest, they discovered. Sugar leads to cancer of the breast, ovaries, prostrate, and rectum. Not surprising since it feeds the cancer cell. Along with feeding yeast infections which produce their own toxins.
In a study done in Dr. J Kelsey 1974 on young women, and in 1983 by Dr. B. Thomas on glucose and insulin concentration and response. Sucrose has been linked to an increased fasting level of glucose.
Dr. M. Fields 1983 did a study on rats linking sugar as being responsible for copper deficiency.
Dr. J. Lehman in 1976 found that sugar can block the absorption of calcium and magnesium in the body.
In March 2002 in Scandinavia's VM Newsletter linked sucrose to weakening of the eyesight. Poor eyesight and the need for glasses is a modern affliction. A hundred years ago you did not have the problem spread out through so much of the population as you do today.
The Addiction Letter 1992 determined that there is a chemical withdrawal response in the body if sugar is removed from the diet. It's withdrawal raised the level of a neurotransmitters: dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. This proves that it really is no more than a drug. And most people are addicted to it.
It has been linked to hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is the percurser to type 2 diabetes.
It has been linked to an acidic digestive tract.
Dr. T. Jones, February 1995 Journal of Pediatrics states. Sugar has been linked to a rapid rise of adrenaline levels in children. Many believe as I do that it is directly responsible for ADHD. When you remove the sucrose and grains from most children's diet, you most always are able to avoid the taking of ritalin.
Sucrose malabsorption is frequent in patients with functional bowel disease.
Sucrose has been linked to premature aging. Of course due to immune system overload.
Sucrose has been linked to alcoholism. Most alcoholics are on the verge of adult onset diabetes from the constant consumption of alcohol. They also always have a chronic yeast infection which demands to be fed. Yeast thrive and spread on the sugar because it is their primary food source.
It has been linked tooth decay. I think we all are aware of this fact.
It causes obesity. This is really do to ancient man and the survival mechanism of insulin. The body adapted to store excess sugars as fat to be used at a latter time when food may have not been plentiful.
A high sucrose diet increases the risk of Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis.
It can cause changes frequently found in person with gastric or duodenal ulcers.
Darlington, Ramsey and Mansfield published in the Lancet in 1986 found it can cause arthritis.
It has been linked to asthma.

It has been linked to permanent altering the way the proteins act in the body.
Sucrose has been linked to an increase in the size of the liver by making the liver cells divide.
It has been linked to an increase in the amount of liver fat. This is not surprising, since insulin will store the sugar in the body as fat.
It has been linked to an increase in kidney size and produce pathological changes in the kidney.
It can damage the pancreas. The pancreas is responsible for the production of enzymes and insulin. In today's high sucrose and enzymatically dead food diets, the pancreas is working quite hard to keep the pace.
It can increase the body's fluid retention.
Sugar is enemy #1 of the bowel movement. This is not good, Many scientist and doctors believe that death begins in the colon from the build up of toxins.
It has been linked to myopia (nearsightedness). Along with sleeping in a room not properly darkened at night.
It can compromise the lining of the capillaries.
It has been linked to making the tendons more brittle.
Sucrose can cause headaches, including migraine. This is a fact in my experience. I don't know how many times I have had a pepsi on a hot day and soon there after I get a small headache.
Sugar plays a role in pancreatic cancer in women. The pancreas creates enzymes and insulin.
Sugar has been linked to adversely affecting school children's grades and cause learning disorders. A D D again.
It has been linked to an increase in delta, alpha, and theta brain waves.
It has been linked to depression.
Sugar increases the risk of gastric cancer. According to Dr. Warburg, who won his first Nobel Prize for work proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. Found in his other research about cancer, sugar actually feeds cancer. If you are going through any kind of cancer treatment, remove sugar from your diet now!
It has been linked to dyspepsia (indigestion).
It has been linked to an increase in your risk of getting gout.
Sucrose has been linked to an increase in the levels of glucose in an oral glucose tolerance test over the ingestion of complex carbohydrates.
Sugar can increase the insulin responses in humans consuming high-sugar diets compared to low sugar diets. No doubt about that, insulin is trying to maintain an even blood sugar level. So if you eat more sugar, it stands to reason that you would have more insulin responses. If you have read the Enzyme report, you may start to be realizing how overworked our pancreas are these days.
A high refined sugar diet reduces learning capacity.
Sucrose has been linked to ineffective functioning of two blood proteins, albumin, and lipoproteins, which may reduce the body’s ability to handle fat and cholesterol. More reasons to take a good digestive enzyme.
Sugar has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Interesting, my grandfather died of Alzheimer's disease. He was also an alcoholic and drank daily for most of his life. Ironically until he forgot. But alcohol is loaded with sugar and feeds yeast!
Sucrose has been linked to platelet adhesiveness. Another reason for digestive enzymes.
It has been linked to hormonal imbalance; some hormones become under active and others become overactive.
It has been linked to the formation of kidney stones.
Sucrose has been linked to the hypothalamus to become highly sensitive to a large variety of stimuli.
It can lead to dizziness.

High sucrose diets of subjects with peripheral vascular disease significantly increases platelet adhesion.
High sucrose diets has been linked to biliary tract cancer. Not surprising.
Sugar feeds cancer. This is a proven fact! In laboratories involved in the study of cancer, they add oxygen to stop the cancer cells from growing. To make the cells grow again, they remove the oxygen. Sugar has the same effect.
High sugar consumption of pregnant adolescents is associated with a twofold increased risk for delivering a small-for-gestational-age infant.
High sugar consumption can has been linked to a substantial decrease in gestation duration among adolescents.
Sucrose will slow food's travel time through the gastrointestinal tract. You know what I am thinking.
It increases the concentration of bile acids in stools and bacterial enzymes in the colon.
Sugar increases estradiol (the most potent form of naturally occurring estrogen) in men. High levels of this hormone has been linked to prostate cancer.
Sugar combines and destroys phosphatase, an enzyme, which makes the process of digestion more difficult. Are you beginning to see why sugar is so hard on your immune system. It kills enzymes and feeds yeast.
It has been linked to gallbladder cancer. Of course.
Sucrose is an addictive substance. There is no doubt about this. It is a drug, not a food.
It can be intoxicating, similar to alcohol.
It can exacerbate PMS.
Given to premature babies it can affect the amount of carbon dioxide they produce.
Decrease in sugar intake can increase emotional stability. I would think so, since you would eliminate the ups and downs of your blood sugar level, keeping it on a more even keel.
The body changes sugar into 2 to 5 times more fat in the bloodstream than it does starch. One of the functions of insulin as a human survival mechanism is to do this. With a high blood sugar level, insulin goes to work by removing the excess sugar from the blood. It then stores it on the body as fat to be used in case of famine.
The rapid absorption of sugar promotes excessive food intake in obese subjects. This is because the absolute zero nutritional value of sugar. The person's body is still craving the correct fuel to nourish the cells. So, the person continues to eat.
Sugar has been linked to worsening symptoms of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Remove the sugar and grains from a childs diet that has been diagnosed with ADHD, and they most always recover in a short time with out the need for ritalin.
Sucrose adversely affects urinary electrolyte composition.
It can slow down the ability of the adrenal glands to function.
Sugar has the potential of inducing abnormal metabolic processes in a normal healthy individual and to promote chronic degenerative diseases. I don't doubt this one bit.
I.Vs (intravenous feedings) of sugar water can cut off oxygen to the brain. Wow!
High sucrose intake could be an important risk factor in lung cancer. As I said before, it feeds cancer.
It increases the risk of polio.

It has been linked to cell death in the body.
Sugar has been linked to impairment of physiological homeostasis of many systems in living organisms.
In juvenile rehabilitation camps, when children were put on a low sugar diet, there was a 44% drop in antisocial behavior. Some clinical proof on the effects of this poison.
Sugar has been linked to gastric cancer.

It has been linked to gum disease.
Sugar increases the estradiol in young men. This has been linked to prostate cancer.
Sucrose can cause low birth weight babies.
Sugar increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This is fast becoming a epidemic in America today.
Can you see why you should at least cut down on your sugar intake? This stuff is literally poison to the body. Nutrasweet (aspartame), and Splenda, are not an acceptable substitute either. Having more health complaints to the FDA than any of the other food additives combined.
The fact that sugar feeds cancer, and that cancer is always present in the body should be reason enough for anyone. It severely over loads the immune system.
Look what happens every year from November to January. You have Halloween, Thanks Giving, Christmas, and then the great New Years celebration. You also have a large amount of food and sweets consumed over these holidays. This time of year is also cold and flu season for that very same reason. Your body is severely stressed from trying to remove these toxins. Most people don't even give themselves half a chance by taking a digestive enzyme and Vitamin D3 supplement. If they did, they would probably avoid becoming sick.
There are more studies I could add to this page, but for the sake of keeping it to a reasonable length I haven't. But I am firmly convinced that sugar is worse for you than smoking. The wide range of health effects is to great as opposed to smoking. When the average person in America consumes 170 pounds a year of sugar as opposed to 25% of the population that smokes. And people get diabetes, cancers of all kinds, and heart disease without having smoked a day in their lives. Something is damaging the immune system to allow this to happen. The one common denominator is of course sucrose.
Remember it comes by many names: Fructose, sucrose, corn syrup, etc. as you try to at least cut down on your intake. Read the labels on your food packages, if it is within the first five, don't eat it.
Many people are addicted and are emotionally attached to their food. If this is your case I recommend the Emotional Freedom Techniques. People are having great success with it. And it is a healthy alternative to medicating away ones problems as so many people do today.
Another very good way to control those cravings is with hypnosis. You can used these fully guaranteed cd's in the comfort of your own home to control your sugar cravings and to stay on the diet. It's worked for 1000's of people. After all, if your not thinking about eating the foods you should be avoiding, you won't.
Be sure and read the other reports as well. You will find loads of free information to boost your health.
