Is sugar deadly?

Is sugar deadly?
The bottom line is that sugar works the addiction and reward pathways in the brain in much the same way as many illegal drugs. Sugar is basically a socially acceptable, legal, recreational drug with deadly consequences.

What do you say? I myself think that sugar can cause a real addiction.

Should we cut sugar from our diet?

Cutting all sugar from your diet would be very difficult to achieve. Fruits, vegetables, dairy products and dairy replacements, eggs, alcohol and nuts all contain sugar, which would leave you with little other than meat and fats to eat - definitely not very healthy.

So what is the correct answer now? Ear sugar or do not eat sugar?


What I think here is that, we should just use sugar moderately as it is bad for the health if putting too much sugar on your drink or food. We have history of diabetes so cutting the sugar is necessary for our family. We can eat but don't over do it as lacking and too much are bad so just put a sugar in moderation.

I agree with you. Our family has a history of diabetes to. So we use lesser sugar as possible. Specially in cooking and drinking coffee. I think you can still use sugar but you must know how to use alternatives like fruits for cooking.

Certainly we should always be mindful of the quantity of things we consume.Sugar isn't necessarily bad but it must be taken in moderation to avoid to avoid consequences.

Moderation is good but I prefer leaving it completely. I know it supplies energy to the body but it is good to do away with it.
Posted by stbrians on 11-27-2018
Our family also has a history of diabetes. Sadly, we have to minimize our sugar intake. I love sweets, I love to put more sugar on my drink when I was a kid. But, right now, we are advised to monitor our intake as it may affect our health.
Posted by theresajane on 11-27-2018
It is difficult to say what is the moderate amount of sugar. The foods we eat and the drinks we take already contain a large amount of sugar and when you add sugar in your food, you are already taking extra sugar. Sugar is soluble carbohydrate with high level of glucose which can be a cause of diabetes if you are taking too much.
Posted by vinaya on 11-29-2018
Yea that's true and clearly what we should do, we should learn to use sugar moderately and not overdo or underdog.
Posted by ElectorAlexander on 12-02-2018
Also the form of sugar that we choose to consume should be the most safest. There are numerous forms depending on the level of processing and source which is why we need to be ultra careful.
Posted by Martin on 12-04-2018
It would be better to limit intake of sugar to those who have diabetes. We also have a history of diabetes, and my mother is diabetic so I see to it that she does not consume a lot of sugar and I always encourage her to do some exercise also.

My father was a diabetic. For him sugar was deadly. I had a friend who was allergic to sugar. For her, sugar was deadly. It all depends on whether or not you have a dietary restriction. I have never a problem with sugar.

Well, everyone should know by now that sugar is really deadly when it's too much. A lot of people have been suffering from diabetes and other illness because of considering too much of everything.

The new stevia type sugar is a good alternative. But doctor say that those who suffer for the kidney issues should consume with caution. So it's kind of difficult for many to have such type of the sugar intake. As it tends to affect many people.
Posted by overcast on 11-27-2018
Yes, stevia sugar does not help to increase glucose and that's why it is use by those who have diabetes.
Posted by luv2xacosta on 12-08-2018
You have a point. My family does not have a history of diabetes, therefore, I tend to believe that sugar is not harmful to me. By the way, I do not take a lot of sugar and sweet foods are not to my liking.

That's good of you, but its good to take it in moderation.

Although sugar has been present in our diet for many years, today we see it as one of the worst ingredients in modern life. The cause of this change of perspective are the harmful effects that sugar has on our organism and that contribute to the appearance of several diseases.

There is a saying that everything in excess is bad to our health or to our life. However, if we talk about if sugar alone is beneficial or not, well I can say that sugar is important in human body.

There are different kinds of sugar. It depends on where it came from, its color, or how it was processed. For instance, natural occurring sugars like sugars found in fruits or sugar which underwent to different process such as icing sugar, brown sugar and white sugar. These sugar is beneficial to our body in a certain level. So, How can I say that sugar is beneficial to our body and without it our human body might not function well. One of the advantages of sugar in our body is it is our body's primary source of energy. In addition to, sugar is vital for our brain health because our brain needs sugar to do its function.

However, too much sugar and being addicted to it can cause different health problems. Consuming too much sugar is not deadly instantly but I do believe it can cause various diseases that can cause body problems or even death. Sugar is the main cause of obesity and chronic health problems like diabetes, fatty liver, high blood pressure and heart diseases.

Therefore, sugar intake should be with our diet within the recommended daily limit.
Posted by rubeth1726 on 11-26-2018
Even if we are not adding extra sugar in your foods, our foods are already high in sugar content. We drink carbonated drinks, we eat confectioneries, we eat fruits, we drink tea and coffee, these foods are high in sugar content.
Posted by vinaya on 11-29-2018
When sugar represents 10-20% of the caloric intake, serious health problems and nutrient deficiency can develop. In addition, decay can appear due to digestible sugar energy particles that promote the appearance and growth of bacteria in the mouth.
Posted by mcnasci24 on 12-06-2018
That is true, everything we eat contains a lot of sugar. But if you have a diabetes, carbonated drinks and confectioneries must be consumed in moderation or avoid these products at all.
Posted by luv2xacosta on 12-08-2018
Well, we all say that too much of everything is bad. That is very true. So we should do things moderately. It will never be a good thing to always put a lot of sugar in you food. You'll suffer in the future

Insulin is a vital hormone for the functioning of our body because it allows glucose to enter the cells of the blood and promotes the burning of glucose. The excess of glucose in the blood can generate a toxic reaction that manifests in complications of diabetes, and in extreme cases can lead to blindness.
Posted by mcnasci24 on 12-06-2018
This is what I try to tell my younger ones. The consequences might not come now but we can't guarantee the future. Too much sugar isn't good for the body and as such we should reduced it drastically.

Too much os something is bad for you. We have to observe our sugar intake especially those with family history of diabetes. Everthing should be eaten in moderation. Always observe a balance diet.

The key word is moderations especially with any form of sweetener because of their bad effects on the body. I think taking sugar stuff once in a while will be the best bet to avoid deprivation.
Posted by lovely on 11-27-2018
Sugar can be bad for your health because it is soluble carbohydrate. If you eat more sugar, you will be taking more carbohydrate. carbohydrate will be converted into glucose and unused glucose is deposited as fats, which is the cause of obesity. This might result in production of more insulin that your body requires, a primary cause of diabetes.
Posted by vinaya on 11-29-2018
Everything that is too much is bad especially to our health. Too much sugar will cause lots of different diseases. The most common one is diabetes.

Right now, I'm limiting my sugar and sugary foods intake. This includes white rice, bread and processed foods. What I do is I switch it with fruits wguch have healthuer sugars unlike commercial sugars. We should start eating healthy at a young age because healthier foods give lots of benefits, shirt term and long term. I know it will be hard at first but it'll be all worth it. If you find it hard you should do it slowly but surely. Keep on practicing and you'll get used to it eventaully.

I agree that making small steps and limiting sugar intake little by little will be worth it. It will be hard at first but the struggle is surely a way to be better and healthier in the future.

Less is more, sugar is also a benefit for our body if we will consume it just right. Everything that is "too much" is bad, you just need to intake moderately because sugar is used for our energy. If you intake less sugar, there will be less energy. If you intake more sugar, more than what is needed, the excess will become fat and you will have a difficulty to remove it.
Posted by vivalavanda on 11-27-2018
That's true, creating a balanced is the key. Our bodies just need a little of everything if we really need to take sugar with anything then it should be as little as possible.
Posted by Frank on 12-08-2018
I believe that moderation is the key for a healthier life. Sugar is good for the body when consumed moderately. Consuming more than necessary might lead to complications that is dangerous to our health. The maximum of sugar we can consume in a day is 6 teaspoons or 25 grams for women. The advisable for men would be 9 teaspoons or 37.5 grams. It is not only sugar that should be moderate, also in everything that we eat.
Posted by Alymae on 11-27-2018
Yes sugar is deadly if it is to much. Everyone has their own specific limit. Some can eat a lot of sugar while some cannot. It really depends on how you intake it but of course, consuming to much of this will really put you in a bad spot that can lead to medical conditions such as diabetes. One thing I have learned from eating to much sugar it can damage your health style plus your teeth that will lead to cavities one day. So you must be aware and try to stay low on the sweets and goods.
Posted by YoloBoy on 11-27-2018
Sugar can be bad, and sugar can be good. Just like you said, it all depends on your body condition. If your family has a history of diabetes, sugar can be the primary cause for diabetes. If you are prone to diebest, you will have to avoid not only sugar but also all kind of sweet foods like confectioneries and carbonated drinks.

Sugar is most deadly when it is processed sugar; but natural sugar does lesser harm.

Ice creams, burgers, cakes, synthesized fruit juices, candies, bars of chocolates, and many others contain processed sugar, which can cause different kinds of illness: obesity, high sugar level, diabetes, and even cancer. Worst still they're addictive. When one gets obsessed with sugar, one is opened to risks, and to make it worse, ones guard against it redices, making it difficult for one to break the addiction.

I think we should cut down on our artificial intake.

Natural sugar produce energy in the body, I know artificil sugar does too, but the body works better with the natural one than with the artificial one.
Posted by mosesoscar on 11-27-2018
Soda is more deadly. It contains more than 12 spoonfuls of sugar in a 300mls bottle. This is very dangerous. We take too much sugar in a day.

Too much consumption of sugar would definitely bad to your health. It can cause or worsen diabetes. perhaps, moderation or just limit your consumption of sugar to prevent certain diseases. And it's true to much use of it can really affect our life, hence the moderation of using it.
Posted by luv2xacosta on 11-27-2018
Like some others have already said, I think it ultimately comes down to moderation. It can be hard to avoid sugar completely, since natural sugars are found in so many things.

Bottom line - use common sense and don't overdo it.

I agree with you. Though people already know the bad effects of too much sugar, still they go for it. It's a sad truth but they usually stop when something's already wrong.
Posted by theresajane on 11-27-2018
Too much sugar can be bad for anyone, I've never heard of sugar addiction but I am aware of Diabetes and sugar induced sore throats. And as you mentioned sugar is found on almost all the food that we regularly eat, but these sugars are natural made ones which are probably healthier than the artificial sugars we use on a daily basis. So I think the best way to cut down and avoid sugars is to just avoid the artificial ones.
Posted by knnon on 11-27-2018
Sugar when consumed in the kid stage, it increases the hyperactivity among us. And when we consume the sugar as we age, we tend to develop more eating disorder. And we end up sugar issues and the diabetes. So on that note I would say that sugar is definitely bad for the health. And people should be consuming it with caution as much as they can.
Posted by overcast on 11-27-2018
Can't we avoid the sugar completely? Unrefined sugar like that directly from sugarcane and beetroot is not bad. Refined sugar is a problem.
Posted by stbrians on 11-27-2018
I think it's not good to avoid sugar completely. Think about dehydration case where having sugar can save your life. Your body needs some amount of glucose which is only possible with fruits, sugar, and other sweets.

An adequate amount of sugar may not bring us harm but too much can bring our health danger.

There is a saying "Too much of anything is bad". Avoiding sugar completely will lower down sugar levels in your body resulting in dizziness. You should not have excess of anything but at the same time you should not avoid it completely. You need to balance things out and find out the right proportions of things you need in your diet. Diabetes is a major health problem these days so having excess of sweets, ice creams should be avoided. However, having them once in a while is totally acceptable.

The motive sugar is horrific for our bodies is as it brings us empty calories. In different words, it isn't actually nutritious and does not offer us with anything healthful. It's far simply, an element that doesn't want us well.
Posted by jetselle on 11-27-2018
We should better understand that sugar is an imortant substance that our body needs. Proper intake and dosage of sugar is better. Just like any other things, too much sugar will kill you. Sometimes the problem is not the sugar but the discipline of people. Though they know the possible results of taking too much sugar still they don't care until it's too late. Remember, prevention is always better than cure.
Posted by burgosmichael2407 on 11-27-2018
Sugar coming from fruits are not the same as your table sugar. They are natural sugars, which are a mix of sucrose, fructose and glucose. These substances are not as bad as table sugars because they balance each other. Aside from that fruits also have fibers to counter such. If we are talking about table sugars though, they should be taken moderately since it's a pure substance. Anything in excess is bad.
Posted by gutzman on 11-27-2018
Sugar is not so much deadly as a product as it is all at once. Your body, unless you're a heavy diabetic... can break down sugar easily. It's when you inundate your body with too much sugar at one time is when it can become deadly.
Posted by NickJ on 11-27-2018
I do think it is deadly because you can get diseases from it when you intake large doses of it. It also comes in many forms which makes it even more dangerous since you might not even know you are eating sugars since carbohydrates are also sugars and those aren't sweet and it may lead you to think that it's not that unhealthy to eat a lot of carbs but it is. It really is deadly in my opinion but it's not that different from many other things in our lives as almost all things we use have risks attached to them.
Posted by Wubwub on 11-27-2018
I agree that it's hard to monitor some of the sugar we consume because most are already mixed in with our food. We should just eat unprocessed and raw food like fruits and vegetables to ensure that there are no sugar added.

We should use as little sugar as possible. Doing away with processed is good for our health.Medics say that sugar boosts growth of cancer cells.Cancer is deadly,not to mention diabetes which can can have adverse damage on body organs.Well,I use sugar to the minimal,may be once a week.

It could be deadly when it is beyond the allowable requirements for consumption.

Many doctors and scientists are beginning to agree that sugar is, in fact, extremely deadly. Obesity and diabetes are an epidemic in the United States and many other countries around the world, and a major cause of those diseases is sugar. These days they put sugar in just about everything, and what’s worse is that it’s notorious for being extremely addictive. Studies have shown that sugar is actually eight times more addictive than cocaine. So now, not only do we have a substance that can cause potentially life-threatening diseases, but it’s also extremely hard to cut out of your diet as well. Yes, sugar can be deadly.
Posted by Denis_P on 11-28-2018
I've read the studies and I agree. Sugar is really deadly. I try my best to limit the amount of sugar I intake. The only factor I can't control is when the food I'm eating was cooked outside. You can never know the amount of sugar they put in the food. I guess to balance that, I limit my sugar intake when I can. I've lost 4 kg since I started cutting sugar from my diet and I feel better than before. It's not just placebo.
Posted by rlpzbeermoney on 11-28-2018
Good for you that you were able to cut down o your sugar intake and lose weight. It's a substance that is very hard to avoid because most of our staple food like rice and bread contains sugar. We should opt to choose healthier alternatives like brown rice and wheat bread if we really want to reduce the sugar we consume.

Yes, excessive use of sugar can result in various health problems like Diabetes and obesity and it does have the potential to be the main reason for deaths of lots of people around the World. However, completely stopping the use of sugar in our diet can be difficult due to its presence in all the food items we consume on a regular basis. The best option to control the use of sugar in our diet is to use its alternatives like honey which have great health benefits. Consuming excessive amount of Sugar in your food is not at all advisable and should be avoided in order to lead a healthier life

There are several types of sugar my friend as there are also several types of diabetes. We can't really avoid consuming sugars though since it is also needed by the body to function properly. However, if taken in excess will surely give you high chances of acquiring diabetes. If consuming sugar cannot be avoided. I'm pretty sure that diabetes can be avoided thru proper nutrition and exercise.

Definitely it is whenever the foods we consume are high in sugar content, we are aware that our body needs it and to much of it will really be bad for our body and overall well being. It is true what they say that "Too much of something, is bad enough". So better watch out for sugar content on the food we eat. Just make healthier food choices and include more vegetables and fruits on your plate daily.

Best decision in my life I have ever made is to cut sugar from my diet. I normally have my coffee with cream if I feel like something sweet I have a sweeter. Most of the time i'm fine with just cream and coffee. I agree that sugar is addictive. You don't realize this addiction until you get off sugar and when you have sugar in your tea and coffee, you feel horrible. However when you try to et off sugar you also feel horrible. I used to have headaches until my body got used to it.

Well you can cut down processed sugar as much as possible. The manufacturing chemicals and process may not be good for your health. When it comes to natural sugar however such as fruits then I think there's nothing wrong with having some each day keeping in mind that fruits are protective foods thus keeping the doctor away.
Posted by jailo on 11-29-2018
I think it is not deadly by itself since you need sugars to function properly. But eating too much sugar that would be damaging to your health I would say. Everywhere you look there are foods with tons of sugar added in them and that is addicting and very unhealthy. So I would advise to cut down the sweets and just eat fruits instead.

Sugar is not deadly, otherwise half of the word population will be vanished right now. It's the amount we put on food what kill us. Of course everybody likes the sweet taste of it, but some people just can't have enough and eat it like non stop. Also, people don't notice the intake we have on sodas, bakery, and preserved sweets. So, stop complaining about the food, and feel yourself responsible for eating like a monster, and not doing anything to change it.

Well I am diabetic. But sugar alone was not the cause of it. There are many ways that sugar can be deadly and there are also ways that it can be helpful. For example, food and beverages, some of them would not be as tasteful without sugar. But sometimes sugar can also be deadly, diabetes is one of them. And fermentation would not be possible without sugar.

Everything too much is bad. It is one of golden rules to follow in every diet. Thus you should always balance your sugar intake not just because it is addictive but because it could cause you diabetes. And well, we all know that diabetes could lead to a lot of complications and then--death.

I think the problem is not so much the sugar, but the habits of the consumer. Abuse of anything you eat or do can certainly kill you. If you eat sugar with moderation, it shouldn't cause you much of a health problem. Exercising helps as well. If a person eats sugar foods with moderation, while exercising and balancing up their meals, they should be living a healthy life.

Sugar is one of the most addictive substances in the world, whether we realize it or not. It comes in many forms such as fructose, glucose, and starch, and it is found in so many types of food -- not just sweets and desserts, but also in honey, rice, and bread. Like any other things, too much is always bad for you. We should watch out for sugar, in particular, because it is highly addictive. When you consume sugar, a signal basically activates the brain's "reward system," which makes us crave more sugar. Going back to the question, "Is sugar deadly?" the answer is definitely yes. Eating too much sugar can lead to insatiable hunger, insulin resistance, diabetes, and even liver failure. Sugar makes you hungry because as discussed earlier, it makes you want to crave more food, and you end up getting stuck in an endless cycle. This leads to weight gain and obesity, which can lead to other health problems. On the other hand, sugar spikes up insulin and blocks leptin, the hormone that regulates body weight.

Of course, moderation is key. I think that one cannot completely remove sugar from their life. We just really need to be mindful of what we put inside our body, and at the same time let ourselves enjoy the sweetness of life from time to time.

In my opinion, too much sugar can never be good because of the side effects of consuming too much of when your body can't digest all of it, then you will have diabetes which is a very deadly disease.

This is actually why most adult and old people are advised to take small or no sugar.

When our cells become resistant to insulin, the beta cells of our pancreas work more. This is crucial because high blood glucose levels can cause serious and irreversible damage.

Over time, insulin resistance becomes stronger and the pancreas can no longer produce the amount of insulin needed to keep blood sugar levels under control. At this point is when the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes may be inevitable.

Sugar is not deadly if you take it moderately or in small quantities, you can still take sugar just avoid taking too much. The limit for a male is 37 grams per day or equivalent to 9 teaspoons a day for female 25 grams or 6 teaspoons a day is the safest range. Taking to much sugar can lead to a lot of health problem that is a common knowledge.

Too much of anything can be dangerous. It has been proven that too much sugar can cause lots of health threats and at the same time the human body needs sugar to function properly so it's best to take sugar moderately. Self control is the key and love yourself.

Sugar is not deadly if you consume it in moderation. I myself have had my scare with diabetes but through proper exercise and diet I have now maintain and kept it at bay. This goes to every aspect of our lives not just on food intake, too much of anything is a bad thing. Just take care of your body so that you can enjoy retirement!

Sugar is not good for the body at all! Too much of anything is not good. I would say that everyone needs to limit the amount they take in daily. Even natural sugars. My doctor just told me and my husband that fruits are great for your diet, but vegetables should be eaten more as fruits still contain the natural sugars. She said if you want to lose weight, you should consider eating quite a bit more veggies.

Sugar is definitely deadly if you take a huge amount of it, I can easily say that because the number of people who suffers diabetes in my place are huge and when I ask some of them if they consume a lot of sugar they most definitely say yes.

I agree that we should cut down on sugar but not to the alarming level. There may be a high percentage of the world population that are afflicted with diabetes and perhaps it is the lifestyle and not just the food we eat. Cutting down on sugar will not minimize the risk of having diabetes but it is definitely good to avoid sugar if you are diabetic. My take on the issue of sugar is to do some regular exercise to burn the sugar that you eat.

We don't need to completely cut off sugar from our diet! What we need to do is avoid excessive sugar intake. The thing is, most of us aren't aware of the amount of sugar we're taking in everyday, with the calorie-rich fast food products and sugar-sweetened beverages widely available in the market nowadays. Too much sugar can lead us to develop Diabetes Mellitus, a lifestyle disease which can lead to harmful complications such as nerve damage, kidney damage, vision deterioration, poorly healing wounds.

I don't much of sugar because I was brought up this way, my parents never allow us to scope sugar ourselves to avoid us taking much of it. So I don't have much of sugar problem. I try to teach people around that it's better to take powdered milk someday and let sugar be.

I just watched a documentary lately and it said the main purpose of sugar is to get people addicted to it, then the big factories can earn a lot of money from the people, and sugar makes no good use to human beings. It's fine to take the natural sweeteners from fruits or some vegetables, but I think whenever possible, we should try to avoid taking any artificial sugar. I agree that in our daily life, it's not easy to totally cut out from sugar, as biscuits, cakes, desserts are all with lots of sugar. It would be better if we try to make these food ourselves and use lesser sugar.
