Based on a recent “60 Minutes” I have been asked numerous times this week “Is sugar toxic?” It is not as simple as a yes or no answer. Sugar affects our body by causing insulin release when blood sugar rises. Processed sugar or simple sugars are absorbed very quickly and cause a tremendous spike in the body’s blood sugar. This causes an abrupt insulin spike. Insulin’s job is to regulate blood sugar so it stores all the excess sugar as body fat. This also causes a lot of stress for the pancreas in trying to keep up with this. If you can eliminate sugar you will be much healthier and happier!
