Three Researchers Say Avoid Sugar

11 Oct

In the world that we live in, sugar is ubiquitous. To completely eliminate consumption of sugar in all its forms is nearly impossible. For that simple reason alone, avoiding the foods that are known to have a basis in sugar is all that more important.

A few experts in the field have studied the effects of sugar on our health and have come to some amazing conclusions. They are expressed in the following ways:

Robert Lustig is a specialist on pediatric hormone disorders and the leading expert in childhood obesity at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, which is one of the best medical schools in the country. In 2009, Robert gave a lecture called “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” and followed it up with the YouTube video. The video is a 90-minute discussion of the nuances of fructose biochemistry and human physiology. The New York Times posed the question : “Is Sugar Toxic?” based upon the research in 2011.

    “If Lustig is right, then our excessive consumption of sugar is the primary reason that the numbers of obese and diabetic Americans have skyrocketed in the past 30 years.”

David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM is a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition who received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award. He wrote about the correlation of dementia to blood sugar levels in a Huffington Posts article : “You Can Prevent Alzheimer’s“.

    “They (The Lancet) reported that in diabetics …… , the risk of becoming demented was increased an astounding 37 fold.”

Peter Attia, M.D. from Stanford University spent 10 years following a diet where he consumed 80 percent of his calories from fat. He continuously monitored his metabolic markers, such as blood sugar levels, percent body fat, blood pressure, lipid levels and others and experienced improvement in every measure of health. An MRI confirmed that he had lost not only subcutaneous fat but also visceral fat, which is the type most detrimental. His use of this ketogenic diet where the body is trained to burn fat instead of carbohydrates has also been associated with the treatment for cancer.

The conclusions reached from these doctors is that for a healthy diet, you should reduce your carbohydrates immediately (sugar), and eat more fat (healthful fats like extra virgin olive oil, avocado, grass-fed beef, wild fish, coconut oil, nuts and seeds.

A reduction in the consumption of sugar (carbohydrates) should not be replaced with the use of Aspartame. Reducing carbohydrates may also lead to some amazing improvements like increasing your endurance, increasing your mental acuity, getting off your blood pressure and diabetes medicine or simply reducing your chances of getting dementia or diabetes.

To your health!

    That’s it!!!! I’m going on a 100% Scotch diet . . . It may not be any healthier but after the first day I won’t care. Hemingway was right!

    Seriously – – thanks for the input. I know that you meant this for everyone but it’s a reminder of what I have been telling myself for some time.

    How about talking on Skype? Monday at 8:30 AM?

    Regarding the post by the New York Times “Is Sugar Toxic”?. It absolutely is and not only for our health!
    I would encourage everyone to read the commentary by Froma Harrop in Saturday October 26th’s Editorial & Opinion section in the Columbus Dispatch “Sugar program a sour Deal for U.S.TAXPAYERS”.
    According to Froma, jobs are being lost and Americans pay about 3 times the world price of sugar because of a farm program designed to “enrich” US sugar growers and processors which in reality is a handful of families. Both sides of the isle are keeping this “travesty” (her words) alive and its on the backs of each and every tax paying, sugar grubbing, candy sucking American.
    She concludes: “How the politicians get away with this is simple: the voters are NOT paying attention.”
    Dear Fellow Voters, we need to “Keep our Eye (collectively) on the Ball” and PAY ATTENTION (if we can, seeing how sugar has got us all hopped up with ADD/ADHD).
    And last but not least…..GO VOTE!
