How Addictive Is Sugar

I don’t know about you but I love a good piece of pie or cake and a cookie with my coffee. But is all that sugar a good idea when getting older?

There are recent studies that have been done on rats show that sugar is more addictive than drugs.

Even rats that were initially made addicted to cocaine and after that had the choice between sugar and cocaine choose the sugar over the cocaine.

I have found an interview that Ty Bollinger from the truth about cancer had with Susan Peirce Thompson about this subject and that motivated me for this article.

I read several articles about sugar and one of them was about how to cut your sugar intake in half which contains easy-to-implement steps to slowly reduce the amount of sugar you use each day.

Here is a video about that subject.

We also know that sugar has a devastating effect on people with diabetes and that it can cause many more health problems for type 1 and 2 diabetes and even on people who do not have diabetes yet but are in the pre-diabetes stage.

According to many studies, it is now very well known that sugar feeds cancer cells and will in that way let them grow faster.

The history of sugar is not that old. Refining sugar and making it easy for humans to eat and digest is something from the last century.

“Sugar works like a drug to our brain and this makes us crave more and more sugar.”

One of the most important health steps you can take is to downsize your sugar intake and preferably cut it out of your diet completely.

This sound easy but we all know that this is not easy to do. We all love the sugar in our coffee or tea. We like our dessert or cookie at night or after dinner.

One of the steps I took is changing from sugar to Stevia in my coffee.

I have not yet completely figured out how to implement it in my other food.

I guess that I am just lucky that I do not have much of a sweet tooth and do not crave a cookie or dessert like other people.

Think really deeply about the bad effects of sugar and try to read about it. This will probably motivate you more than my short writing here.
