Public Awareness Campaign to Promote Naturopathic Doctors and Their Needed Role in Curbing Obesity in America
(Scottsdale, AZ) – It’s no secret that sugar’s addictive taste has us craving foods we know we shouldn’t be eating. We often think that at the end of a long day we deserve a little treat or indulge on holidays and special occasions. Although sugar has been around for a very long time, it’s only in the last few hundred years that we have been able to mass produce refined sugar and consume such large quantities of it. Sugar was rare and expensive and was used mainly as a spice to sweeten tea and preserve foods. In the year 1700, the average person in the developed world consumed approximately 4 pounds per year which is less than 1% of caloric intake. By the 1800s, the average American’s intake of sugar was approximately 9 pounds per year and presently its nearer 150 pounds per year!
There’s no sugar coating the numerous negative health issues that sugar plays a leading role in. Sugar consumption can be attributed to playing a role in numerous diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, PCOS, and even cancer. If that isn’t enough to convince you, sugar is also the cause premature aging. Collagen and elastin, the protein strands that keep skin firm and supple, are inhibited by a high sugar diet.
