Refined sugar is lethal when ingested by humans because it provides only that which nutritionists describe as “empty” or “naked” calories.  It lacks the natural minerals which are present in the sugar beet or cane.

    In addition, sugar is worse than nothing because it drains and leaches the body of precious vitamins and minerals through the demand its digestion, detoxification and elimination makes upon one’s entire system.  So essential is balance to our bodies that we have many ways to provide against the sudden shock of a heavy intake of sugar.

    Sugar taken every day produces a continuously overacid condition, and more and more minerals are required from deep in the body in the attempt to rectify the imbalance.  Finally, in order to protect the blood, so much calcium is taken from the bones and teeth that decay and general weakening begin.

    Excess sugar eventually affects every organ in the body.  Initially, it is stored in the liver in the form of glucose.  Since the liver’s capacity is limited, a daily intake of refined sugar (above the  required amount of natural sugar) soon makes the liver expand like a balloon.  When the liver is filled to its maximum capacity, the excess glycogen is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids.  These are taken to every part of the body and stored in the most inactive areas; the belly, the buttocks, the breasts and the thighs.

    When these comparatively harmless places are completely filled, fatty acids are then distributed among active organs, such as the heart and kidneys.  These begin to slow down; finally their tissues degenerate and turn to fat.  The whole body is affected by their reduced ability, and abnormal blood pressure is created.  The parasympathetic nervous system is affected; and organs governed by it, such as the small brain, become inactive or paralyzed.  The circulatory and lymphatic systems are invaded, and the quality of the red corpuscles starts to change.  

    An over abundance of white cells occurs, and the creation of tissue becomes slower.  Our body’s tolerance and immunizing power becomes more limited.  So we cannot respond properly to extreme attacks, whether they be cold, heat, mosquitoes or microbes. 

    Excessive sugar has a strong mal-effect on the functioning of the brain.  The key to orderly brain function is glutei acid, a vital compound found in many vegetables.  The B vitamins play a major role in dividing glutamic acid into antagonistic-complementary compounds which produce a “proceed” or “control” responses in the brain.  B vitamins are also manufactured by symbiotic bacteria which live in our intestines.  When refined sugar is taken daily, these bacteria wither and die, and our stock of B vitamins gets very low.  Too much sugar makes on sleepy; our ability to calculate and remember is lost.
