Is Sugar Toxic?
A lot of people ask this question. Let me ask it another way. If someone gave you something and the label said, “This substance is known to be a key contributor to obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer,” would you take it? Would you consider hazardous to your health maybe even… toxic?
Does added sugar meet the definition of toxic? That’s an important barometer. Toxicity is the degree to which a substance can damage a living or non-living organism.”
Would you consider heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity damaging to your system?
MSNBC recently asked the same question: http://todayhealth.today.
