"Sugar is entirely an unnatural additive. Worst is the high fructose corn syrup that gets added to everything.
Natural human diet included very little. Just a few rare fruits when they were in season. Now a single can of coke contains about as much sugar as a couple of hundred years ago an average human would probably consume in an entire year. Or something to that effect.
And yet they claim it is a mystery why so many peoples bodies metabolic systems are giving up processing sugar"

 

It is acidity too. And that is associated with many health problems.

Better to run your system at an alkaline pH level

There's lots of other caveats.

But I dont think any of them compare in scale to:

not a bad guess.

 

average was 20 teaspoons a year.

 

can of coke contains 15.

This, foe example

Is waaay too conservative. (and even that says " there is no biological need for dietary fructose")

 

basically, it serves (through quite a complicated metabolic pathway) in the creation of body fat.

 

(via

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycerol

to

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triglyceride)

 

Without sugars creating body fat is "almost" impossible.

Some body fat is highly desirable. But as soon as you get above a BMI of 25, everything starts to be poisoned.

In The UK, they are now at some 65% of the population with a BMI > 25 (unhealthy)

and 30% > 30 (life expectancy of around 60 years old).

 

Not to mention, being fugly.
