First listen to Dr. Clove tell you one thing: According to many scientists, sweet and lovely sugar has fallen in love with terrible cancer!
Don’t you believe it yet. Although life with sugar is sweet, a large number of scientific studies have confirmed that life with polysaccharides is prone to cancer.
Do you want to know why? Please listen to Dr. Clove slowly for you.
The Effect of Sugar on Human Body
Sugar is the main energy substance of the human body and is very important to maintain our normal physiological function. Both natural sugars and added sugars need to be converted into glucose after being ingested by the human body and enter the blood (called [blood sugar]) before they can be used by the human body. Therefore, when we talk about sugar in the human body, we generally refer to blood sugar.
Utilization of Sugar by Cells
Almost all cells in the human body need sugar to provide nutrition, as do normal cells and cancer cells.
However, the way sugar is used is different.
The use of sugar by normal cells usually needs to be done in an orderly and step-by-step manner with the help of oxygen.
Cancer cells, on the other hand, do not need it. It quickly uses glucose to supply energy for itself through a method called anaerobic glycolysis, thus meeting the needs of its rapid growth and crazy expansion.
What occurs when blood sugar rises.
Diabetes, obesity, tooth decay, yes. But there is another one, cancer.
High levels of blood sugar can directly increase the risk of cancer. This effect can be realized through the following ways:
- Let cancer cells grow fast; Let cancer cells live forever; Let cancer cells spread everywhere.
In addition, hyperglycemia can lead to diabetes and obesity, which are themselves risk factors for cancer.
How and how much is appropriate?
We suggest that you:
- Sugar is mainly consumed through daily diet such as fresh fruits and grains. These natural sugars, In general, it is enough to meet the daily needs of a healthy person. Adding sugars (white sugar, corn syrup, concentrated fruit juice, etc.) should be limited or avoided as much as possible. Both adults and children are advised to limit it to less than 10% of the total energy intake per day, and preferably further limit it to less than 5%. How much is this amount? For example, for adult women with light physical activity, the recommended daily total energy intake is 1800 kilocalories, 10% is 180 kilocalories, equivalent to 45 grams of sugar, and 5% is equivalent to 22.5 grams of sugar. Is it not specific enough? Look at this: a 500 ml bottle of Coke can easily drink 52.5 grams of sugar!
Therefore, cherish health and stay away from adding sugar.
Sugar is our main source of energy. Eating sugar is a daily compulsory course.
However, don’t eat too much. Excessive intake of sugar, as mentioned earlier, will cause great damage to health.
