Even if the label says “sugar free” it is most likely is not sweetener free. Even worse, artificial sweeteners cause depression and are toxic for the brain. One study by the NIH (National Institute of Health) showed that people who drink diet drinks with artificial sweeteners are more depressed than those who don’t.
I personally stopped eating sugar about 5 years ago. It wasn’t easy. Almost every item in the supermarket contains sugar, corn syrup, artificial sweetener, or a sugar derivative. Many times it is a combination. Even pet food has sugar in it. Over the years I became an expert at finding this hidden drug.
Another NIH study found that artificial sweeteners are are affecting the concentrations of mood-regulating neurotransmitters. Which can be toxic for your brain. Sugar and it’s derivatives like high fructose corn syrup can also cause brain inflammation. This of course than lead to fatigue and depression as well.
Sugar Has Many Detrimental Effects To Your Health
Among many other detrimental effects, sugar feeds tumors and cancer cells. This is called the ‘Warburg Effect,’ named after Dr. Otto Warburg, who won the Nobel Prize in 1931.
He figured out, wait for it, that cancer feeds itself by fermenting sugar. In my book I mention about Auto Brewery Syndrome and the potential for corn syrup to ferment in your gut. Not only that, this process can alter your genes through epigenetic expression.
Of course I cannot forget to mention diabetes, fatigue, addiction, serotonin deficiency and obesity. All unwanted negative side effects of eating and consuming sugar and artificial sweeteners on a daily basis. If you want to get your energy back and feel happier, cutting our sugar and artificial sweeteners is a must.
Not to mention the negative energy associated with the production and cultivation of sugar over millennia. Million of people were enslaved just to harvest sugar. Still to this day. In my book the The Political Gut I elaborate more, detailing sugars history and studies which have shown that sugar is more addictive than cocaine. No wonder it’s in almost all the foods you buy at the supermarket. Sugar is also in your fast food french fries. Fried in oils that have been shown to cause depression as well.
