Sugar Is Natural, but It Can Still Be Toxic
In an article7 for the Huffington Post, Dr. Lustig writes about the toxic impact of added sugars, noting that:
“The naysayers will say, ‘But sugar is natural. Sugar has been with us for thousands of years. Sugar is food, and how can food be toxic?’… Sugar by itself furnishes energy, and that’s about it… Fructose, the sweet molecule in sugar, contains calories that you can burn for energy, but it’s not nutrition, because there’s no biochemical reaction that requires it.
In excess, it can fry your liver, just like alcohol. And this makes sense, because where do you get alcohol from? Fermentation of sugar. Too much sugar causes diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver disease, and tooth decay. When consumed in excess, it’s a toxin. And it’s addictive – just like alcohol...”
According to Dr. Lustig, this similarity is precisely why kids are now developing alcohol-related diseases such as Type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease, even though they’re not drinking alcohol.
