SHONNY - Sugar feeds the harmful bacteria in the mouth, causing tooth decay and dental problems.
Consuming excess fructose can cause various problems and can have extensive effects on your health. It causes an abundance of symptoms known as classic metabolic syndrome. These include weight gain, abdominal obesity, high blood sugar, elevated triglycerides and high blood pressure. It also increases your uric acid levels, which is a risk factor for heart and kidney disease. It lowers your “good” cholestorol and overloads and damages your liver. The excess fructose gets turned into fat and induces the production of trigylcerides, which can lodge in the liver and through the arteries, which can cause nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and in turn, raises your risk for heart attack and stroke. Total-body inflammation is another risk factor caused by excess fructose. Your liver panics and sends an S.O.S for extra insulin, your pancreas then gets overwhelmed and goes into overdrive, producing the inflammation, which then puts you at higher risk of obesity and diabetes. It also causes hormone imbalances and resistance, mood swings and addiction.
