Is Sugar a Poison?



Crave sugar much? I don't mean spooning it right out the jar to your mouth...but then again, that too could point to an issue.  


Regularly craving sweet and sugary treats like cake, cookies, candy, sodas, even white rice and bread may be one sign of a sugar addiction. So too could mood swings, tired mornings, and afternoon energy crashes. But aside from the energy crashes and the empty calories, why should you really care about how much sugar you consume? I mean, how bad is sugar, really?  


Here's one woman's story on how sugar began controlling her life and how she used hypnosis to course correct. 


But we are talking about sugar, not poison...right? 


The book, Sugar Blues by William Duffy asks the question, "When is food a food and when is a food a poison?" The dictionary defines a poison as a substance capable of causing the illness or death of a living organism when introduced or absorbed. 


Duffy identifies refined sugar as a poison because it has been depleted of its life forces, vitamins and minerals and what is left consists of pure, refined carbohydrates for which the body cannot use. However, the body still needs to work to clear it. As it does, toxic substances such as pyruvic acid and abnormal sugars are created.  


William Duffy goes on to detail how pyruvic acid accumulates in the brain and nervous system and the abnormal sugars in the red blood cells. These toxic substances interfere with the respiration of the cells. They cannot get sufficient oxygen to survive and function normally. In time, some of the cells die. This interferes with the function of a part of the body and is the beginning of degenerative diseases. 


The book warns that sugar taken every day produces a condition where 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 can begin. 


So you see,  sugar is not just a weight management issue, it is a total body health issue.
