Just try to say no to sugar: It’s ubiquitous and addictive – and irresistible, and our waistlines?

There’s mounting evidence that a substance we’re hardwire to consume –a six-month-old baby already prefers wetness to all other tastes – may do far more harm than good. In fact, it doesn’t do much good at all.

The USDA doesn’t even have a recommended daily intake for sugar because, put simply, it’s not recommended. It has no known nutrients, and while we do need sugar in microscopic amounts for basic cell function, there’s nothing microscopic about how much of it we eat. Americans consume almost 40 percent more sugar now than they did in the 1950s, and man scientists blame that, at least in part, for out-of-control weight gain, chronic diseases, and even premature aging.


“Sugar when are overdosed is a toxin – an we are overdosed”

Robert Lusting, a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, San Francisco, and a leader of the anti-sugar movement among researches and academics, says the sharp rise in sugar consumption may even lead to cancer. “Sugar when are overdosed is a toxin – an we are overdosed,” says Lustig.
Plenty of experts question whether there’s enough evidence to declare war on sugar just yet, even as schools are carting away vending machines and New York City’s mayor, Michail Bloomberg, tried (unsuccessfully) to outlaw supersize sodas.

Scientific journals are filled with articles presenting conflicting evidence about sugar’s long-term health effects, and even stalwart institutions such as the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association differ over its role in causing illness.

The controversy has even arrived at the cosmetic counter, since one of the more interesting claims about sugar is that is has a negative impact on skin. When you allow yourself a spoonful of Nutella, for instance, the sugar attaches to protein and fat cells in your body in a process know as glycation, forming “advanced glycation end products” – or AGE’s, as they are called in the lab.

This happens in all the cells in your body, but the effect appears to concentrate in collagen and elastin, says Laura Goodman, a senior scientist at Procter & Gamble who specializes in skin-care products. These proteins, which give skin its strength and suppleness, become stiff; at the same time, an oxidative reaction can turn skin a yellowish hue, in the same way that sugar added to bread makes it brown in the oven.

In other words, AGEs may make you look O-L-D.
