8. Cancer Risk Increase
MD Anderson Cancer Center at The University of Texas says that sugar does not necessarily lead to cancer. They suggest that eating too much sugar can lead to weight issues, which can put you at a higher risk for cancer and other diseases.
They suggest avoiding processed sugar as well as other processed foods. Eating whole fruit is perfectly fine, but to lower your risk of cancer try to keep a normal weight by avoiding eating too much processed sugar. Men should eat no more than 150 calories of sugar a day, and women no more than 100 calories of sugar a day. Most people eat far more sugar than that each day, which is the problem.
Enjoying good health sometimes takes sacrifice, but in this case, you really aren’t sacrificing anything. Once you give up sweet drinks like soft drinks, sweet tea, cookies and cakes on a daily basis, you can then enjoy them for the once in a blue moon treats they’re supposed to be. Remember that there was a time that people just didn’t have sweet things on a daily basis other than fruit.
Going sugar free for your body and mind will pay off in the long run. You’ll improve your health, lose weight and avoid cardiovascular disease caused by food that we were never meant to eat in the first place.
