Sugar as addictive as Cocaine - Parents are making their kids junkies.
One doctor says that sugar addiction can be so strong, we may need rehab to overcome it. California-based endocrinologist, Dr. Robert Lustig said he thinks America needs to go to rehab for sugar addiction. Furthermore, he told CBS News “60 Minutes” that he believes that sugar is as addictive as cocaine. Like cocaine and other drugs, sugar can actually cause a euphoric feeling “that triggers dopamine, the chemical that controls pleasure in the brain.”

Caffeine is not a narcotic and is therefore non habit forming.

Nicotine is not a narcotic and is therefor non habit forming.

Do you see where I'm going with this? Anything can be addictive, I.E. habit forming.

It doesn't have to be a narcotic.

Oh you must have meant physically addictive.

Mental addiction is way harder to get over than physical addiction.

I don't think so. Many things will increase dopamine levels in the brain, leading to an overall felling of well-being though.

When it's released it will eventually cause a crash, mentally and physically.

The only drug I ever took that didn't lead to a crash for me was pure MDMA. Does that release dopamine?

white refined sugar-is not a food. It is a pure chemical extracted from plant sources, purer in fact than cocaine, which it resembles in many ways. Its true name is sucrose and its chemical formula is C12H22O11.

Sugar depletes minerals from the body. Loss of these minerals cause cancer.

Yes, however there are known reasons.

These reasons are MONEY.

How can we be addicted to a natural occurring chemical in our brain? By exercising we increase these natural levels, allowing more to release in a natural fashion.

The black ops drug trade is a whole other subject pal.

my point is, there is no way of preventing us being junkies because it is a natural part of our function to make dopamine. we are naturally junkies!

and thus there is no reason to stop sugar because it causes dopamine release..


isnt dopamine a way of the body telling us were getting something right?

I've been addicted to heroin and coke in the past and been through withdrawls with both. 3 weeks ago I gave up sugar after at least 40yrs, coffee also and milk - it was and is a walk in the park in comparison with other drugs.

You WILL feel better after eliminating coffee from your diet.

Drinking rum and cokes once in awhile isn't enough caffeine to upset your physical chemistry, if you indulge in those.

Your welcome. I also have liver damage but luckily not Hep C.

Here's something I found on Hep C in case you didn't know yet.
