Adrenal System

Excessive consumption of Simple Sugars may increase the body’s production of Adrenaline by up to 400%.

Aging & Life Extension effects of excess carbohydrates may accelerate the Aging Process by causing Cross-Linking (glycosylation) of the body’s Proteins.

Cardiovascular System consuming too many simple sugars can increase the risk of Atherosclerosis

(due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen that is a constituent of Blood Vessels).

Effects of carbohydrates may damage the Blood Vessels (due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen within Blood Vessels).

Too much carbohydrates may increase the risk of Hypertension (due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen in the Blood Vessels).

Digestive System

Complex carbohydrates excess may cause Intestinal Permeability.

Your body uses carbohydrates to produce what may exacerbate Irritable Bowel Syndrome (by reducing the buffering effect of Polysaccharides).

Excretory System– Excessive consumption of Simple Sugars may damage the Kidneys (due to Simple

Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen that is a component of the tiny filters within the Kidneys).

What does too much sugar do to your body

Eyes/Vision – increase the risk of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD).

Increase the risk of Cataracts (due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen that is a component of the Eyes).

Immune System–  accelerate the development of food Allergies.

Simple Sugars may feed Cancer cells and Cancer patients are therefore advised to reduce their consumption of dietary Simple Sugars:

– increase the risk of Colon Cancer.

– may increase the risk of Stomach Cancer.

Simple Sugars may feed the detrimental Candida albicans yeast and people with

over-proliferation of Candida albicans should minimize their consumption of

Simple Sugars.

may suppress the Immune System:

Metabolism– can cause the production of excessive

quantities of Acetic Acid which further contributes to excessive production of endogenous Cholthe esterol:

 lower HDL Cholesterol production.

 increase the risk of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2.

cause Fatigue.

Simple Sugars may stimulate the production of Free Radicals.

cause Obesity.

Excessive Simple Sugars are converted to Triglycerides (and are then stored within the body as Adipose Tissue) in order to prevent the toxic effects that would otherwise arise as a result of excessive Simple Sugars – this can result in Obesity.

Musculoskeletal System – Joints to become brittle and stiffer (due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen that is a component of the Joints).

Nervous System-may increase the risk of Parkinson’s Disease.

Oral Health– Simple Sugars can interact with Detrimental Bacteria that reside on the Teeth

Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus) and result in the production of Lactic Acid that causes Tooth Decay.

Sexual System– Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Excessive consumption of Simple Sugars may increase the risk of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS) and exacerbates the symptoms of PMS.

Skin-damage to the Skin and may increase the formation of Wrinkles (due to Simple Sugars causing Cross-Linking of the Collagen component of the Skin).

Minerals – increase the body’s excretion of Magnesium.

Mmay cause depletion of Potassium.

Simple Sugars may cause Cross-Linking (glycosylation) of Hemoglobin, thereby

reducing the ability of Hemoglobin to transport Oxygen to Red Blood Cells within the body.

Vitamins – Simple Sugars may cause the depletion of the body’s Vitamin B6 reserves (this

occurs because Vitamin B6 is required for the utilization/metabolism of Simple

Sugars).

Simple Sugars may interfere with the transport of Vitamin C through the body – as Simple Sugars use the same transport system as Vitamin C

Metabolism– Hypoglycaemia may increase the craving for Simple Sugars.

Consumption Recommendations

The optimal human diet should contain no more than 15% of Simple Sugars.

Major Contributors to Dietary Simple Sugars Intake

  1. Soft Drinks consumption is responsible for 33% of the total content of added

Simple Sugars (Fructose + Sucrose + Glucose) in the diets.

  1. Sweetened Grains (primarily Breakfast Cereals) consumption is responsible

for 19% of the total content of added Simple Sugars (Fructose + Sucrose +

Glucose) in the diets.

  1. Sweets/Candy consumption is responsible for 17% of the total content of

added Simple Sugars (Fructose + Sucrose + Glucose) in the diets.

  1. Fruit Drinks consumption is responsible for 10% of the total content of

added Simple Sugars (Fructose + Sucrose + Glucose) in the diets.

  1. Milk Products consumption is responsible for 9% of the total content of

added Simple Sugars (Fructose + Sucrose + Glucose) in the diets.

Carbohydrates

Excessive consumption of Fructose may cause Depression (in persons who are

Fructose Intolerant).

Excessive consumption of Sucrose may cause Depression.
