Sugar Health Effects: Is Refined Sugar Bad For You?
In summary- we crave sugar since it is soothing to us.
Too much of it, especially processed sugar can raise our triglyceride levels.
I guess I am going to have to slow down on my Ben and Jerry ice cream addition. I don’t want high triglycerides and high cholesterol.
Do you realize that a glass of orange juice has about 22-27 grams of refined sugar since it is processed.
I advocate having the fruit with the fiber- the orange itself. That is one way to decrease the high intake of sugar.
