Sugar Addiction! Do you think have it?
No matter who you are you have had it a some piont! Sugar is a highly refined substance that does not appear alone in nature. It looks a lot like cocaine, and sugar acts a lot like heroin when it hits the brain. Although the idea that sugar was addictive was controversial among scientists for years, they began to take note when the paper titled Sugar and Fat Bingeing Have Notable Differences in Addictive-Like Behavior was published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2009.

The study showed that sugar affects the brain chemistry and thus might be expected to cause addictive behavior. In the study, written by Nicole Avena and others, it was shown that sugar bingeing can cause withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

The behavioral effects are similar to the neurochemical changes in the brain that also occur with addictive drugs. One finding of that study is seldom discussed ó both sugar and the taste of sweet activate beta endorphin receptor sites in the brain, the same receptor sites that are activated by heroin and morphine.

The implications of this finding are that sugar substitutes, which have become a major industry in the United States and other nations, may not be the answer for people who want to lick their sugar addiction. Children who are given sweet candies and drinks made with sugar substitutes may still become sugar addicts when they grow up, and will find it just as difficult as the rest of us when it comes to giving up the sugar and other refined carbohydrates in their diet.

The bottom line Ė sugar is addictive, and itís dangerous to oneís health. Because of its addictive qualities, it is very difficult to give up sugar, but the benefits in improved physical and emotional health make it worth the work.


Effect of Coca Cola on your body
Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? Itís because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago. You know why? It was redundant!

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You donít immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: First effect of coca cola on your body. Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (Theres plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dialate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This effect of coca cola is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

60 minutes: The effect of coca cola caffeine diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that youíll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down youíll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. Youíve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.


The effect of Coca Cola After the rush
This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (As little as two if youíre a smoker.) But, hey, have another Coke, itíll make you feel better.
Greetings truth seekers,
If you are interested in real news and not just the propaganda that gets spewed out by main stream media, I would suggest mathaba.com
I am a gold subscriber for Mathaba news, I donít know if you have heard of it or not but in my opinion I would say that mathaba news is one of the most informative real news websites that I have had the good fortune of finding on the internet and the most reliable source when it comes to news from Libya. Mathaba was the homepage of the great Brother Leader Muammar Al Gaddafi on his own personal computer. Information on the Green charter can also be gathered from Mathaba, the green charters ideals are to spread the green Jamahiriya across the world. If you are interested in real news about not only Libya but world issues in general then I would highly recommend this website [link to www.mathaba.net]
Take care,
Nickolas.

I can't keep anything with sugar in the house. I have no self control. If I bring something sweet home, I will gorge on it it until it is gone. So I never buy it except just once in a while, and I'll eat it all in an afternoon or evening.

Re: Sugar Addiction! Do you think have it?
Sugar isn't bad unless it's refined.


The sugar from a banana is good for your because it's bonded with fiber which slows the absorption of the sugar into the blood stream.

And the acid phosphoric acid making you not vomit is a lie.
Fruit juices contain just as much sugar without added phosphoric acid you don't vomit from them.


Anyways.

Eat lots of fruit. It's a good low fat calorie source that gives you energy to actually get out and exercise.


And the fiber from the fruit helps you evacuate toxins from your body.

Re: Sugar Addiction! Do you think have it?
Sugar has a lot of names: High fructose corn syrup, corn syrup solids, maltose, methel alcohol, fuctose, lactose, nitros, corn starch and etc. It's close to impossible to keep it from your diet if shopping in a super market. Sugar is a cheap filler food that can directly be related to the cause of diabetes. Glaring Example: Before white men showed up in Alaska the eskimo population and indians had no problem with diabetes or obesity. So, guess what the number on killer of indigenous people is? Diabetes/obesity!

Those of us who are addicted to it crave it just as much as one would crave alcohol or cocaine.

Most regular Coca Cola has high fructose corn syrup.

I rarely drink soda but when I do I buy Coca Cola bottled in Mexico . It has sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup.
I still check the ingredients though.
It's like the old Coca Cola that was bottled in the states.

How do we know this? Did they have hospitals doing testing back then? Or maybe with the white man came a lot of unhealthy foods.

Like lets say deep frying carbohydrates which clogs up the pancreas with fat inhibiting insulin production. Oh wow now you have diabetes. That came with the white man as well.


Diabetes is reversible. I reversed mine by cutting excessive fat out of my diet. I can now drink soft drinks all I like without fear.


Insulin does not turn sugar into fat like many doctors claim. Insulin is released into the blood in response to blood sugar. It then stores the fat that's already in the blood into your fat stores and tells the body to use the sugar as energy for now because sugar is what is used for energy in your body.

Even when you burn fat your body has to break it down into sugar before use.

The problem is that nobody has ever heard of blood fat levels. I'm sure the industry that makes billions off of diabetes is working as hard as it can to keep it that way.

If sugar consumption caused diabetes Brazil would be number 1. They consume twice as much sugar yet have drastically lower diabetes rates.


US is #29 for incidents of diabetes
But Brazil is number 124.

Look at those links.

The only thing that countries with high diabetes rates have in common is high fat diets.


And since obesity rates are seemingly correlated with obesity one can say that high fat diets cause obesity.

US is #29 for incidents of diabetes
But Brazil is number 124.

The only thing that countries with high diabetes rates have in common is high fat diets.


And since obesity rates are seemingly correlated with obesity one can say that high fat diets cause obesity.

Cutting fat from her diet didn't work for my mother-in-law. She treated fat like it was the plague.

She still has diabetes and now has alzheimers too.

That's because not all types of Diabetes are preventable. Such as the case when the pancreas goes kaput and no longer excretes insulin to balance the blood glucose in the blood. Your mother-in-law probably had that type.
