Why is sugar so unhealthy? Because it’s synthetic, created by humans.
First off, sweet natural products like dates contain lots of vitamins, elements, antioxidants, fiber and other substances which nourish us. When the body needs nourishment, it craves something sweet; this is how we are programmed. And if we eat natural products, then everything’s alright. But if we reach for sugar, we won’t be getting any of those precious substances that our bodies need. Even worse – we deprive our bodies of those substances, because digesting that sugar takes a lot of vitamins and elements, which the body borrows from various tissues.
Secondly, naturally sweet products are usually alkaline, which prevents the carbohydrates being used by Candida or rot bacteria, because they create an environment in which they can’t grow. Sugar does the opposite – since it’s strongly acidogenic, the body has to use up resources for neutralizing it and when there isn’t enough of them, this creates a perfect environment for the parasites to multiply and deprive the body of nutrients even further.
Thirdly, sugar is physically and psychologically addictive, like a drug. The more you eat, the more you weaken the body, which sends the signal for needing more nourishment; this makes you feel the sugar craving again, so you reach for more sugar and damage the body more. The worse you feel physically and mentally, the more you crave sugar – this is a vicious cycle of self-destruction.
This is worth remembering the next time you want to treat someone, especially children, to something sweet.
