We all need sugar.

But excess sugar: that is downright unhealthy.

Now it seems that sugar consumption in Malaysia seems to be hot in debate. TheSun today through their journalist Karen Arukesamy wrote a report about five things wrong with sugar.

Here are the five ultimate sins of sugar:

1. Sugar is unnatural chemical - produced by industries processes by refining it down to pure sucrose, after stripping away vitamins, minerals, proteins enzymes and other nutrients

2. Processed same way as heroin - sugar is first pressed as juice from sugar cane and refined into molasses then into brown sugar and finally into white crystals

3. Almost identical to alcohol - the biochemical make up of white sugar is almost identical to alcohol except fro one molecule

4.Addictive - sugar addicts are much like drug addicts in need, withdrawal and denial where the syptoms include tremors, flu-like symptoms, headaches and intense mood swings

5.Causes slow and insidious damage to the body - refined sugar is devoid of all nutrients, it causes the body to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

Overprocessed=not natural = not healthy

Sugar is an overprocessed food item. Lets not forget that. Anything that is not natural, is alien to human body system and is totally unnecessary in our food.

It is never meant to be part of our natural diet, ever.

And let us open our eyes to see that modernization has made some of the biggest mistake: feeding us with unnatural food products hence letting us suffer with incurable diseases.

This is 21st century and we should be moving forward, but the reality is every minute people dies because of these unnatural, overprocessed food commodity, especially refined white sugar. Isn't that ironic!
