Sugar the Silent Killer

Sugar – The Silent Killer

We have all heard the word `attitude’ bandied about many times over the last few years in particular. It’s a word used by motivators, employers, and every Tom, Dick, and Harry, and me – and probably you!

Human beings are a funny lot – unlike sheep who follow the leader, human beings tend to wander off in all directions, often looking for THE LEADER. Many want to be the leader; all have their own values and agendas; most get it wrong a number of times.  No one is always right – we only have to look at the food industry to realize that.

Right now it’s the food industry I want to warn you about. You might think they have your interest at heart and that your well-being is their number one objective. Unfortunately if that is what you think then you probably have your head stuck in the sand.

The Food Industry is like any other business – the objective is simply to make profit and as much as possible.

Don’t get me wrong. I believe strongly in free enterprise but unfortunately much of the processed food you find on the supermarket shelves is, quite simply, poisoning you, albeit over a long term. A little like in the 16th and 17th centuries women would take small amounts of arsenic to tighten their facial skin, not realizing that it was slowly, and eventually painfully, killing them.

Sugar the silent killer

Sugar the silent killer

Today’s major poison is without any doubt, SUGAR. In its refined stage it is in nearly every packaged food and soft drink that you buy. The trouble is, the human body cannot cope with all that sugar and, over time, begins to deteriorate, to break down. The pancreas, try as it might, is unable to take the punishment that a constant use of sugar bombards it with. In the end, it gives up and when it does, diabetes occurs and the individual is on insulin for the rest of their life.

But there is more – the side effects of diabetes and insulin can include blindness, loss of limbs – or parts of and illness becomes the norm and life becomes difficult beyond imagining – all started by constant use of sugar.

That is only part of it. Sugar turns to fat if the body does not burn it up and that fat can increase cholesterol levels, often leading to blockage of the arteries, heart attacks and strokes and, wait for it, weight gain – lots of it which, in turn, leads to bone joints having to carry more weight than they are designed for. Then, guess what, the disease cripples the individual and they become dependent on family, medical, and the Welfare  State.

So do the food manufactures then come asking if they can help? Without litigation, I doubt it.

What really happens is that the sugar manufacturers’ lobby congress to turn a blind eye and not make too many waves and, unfortunately, congress often complies.

Soon, very soon in fact, people are going to wake up and realize that half the population has diabetes 2 and are sickly and require the State to look after them. That is when Congress will realize that it can’t afford to look after 150,000,000 people with diabetes.

I’m reminded of a book I read many years ago that told of the future and when people reached 60 years of age, all medications were cut off. So off they went and died. The author must have had a crystal ball because what’s the next step when the numbers become too great to cope with? I could certainly take a guess.

If it’s any comfort though, this is not just an American problem. Obesity in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany and many other countries is growing and governments are starting to realize that a major disaster is heading in their direction. Unfortunately they, like the general public, have an ATTITUDE problem. They believe they have it under control – it won’t happen here, we’re okay, our obesity rate can be controlled. People here don’t consume more than three pounds of sugar a month. We’ll be right.

Soft drinks alone account for a whopping 33%, table sugar 25% and the rest is in breakfast cereals, desserts, ice cream, candy, and fruit drinks cover 10%.

Yes, we do eat all that sugar and, yes, it will cost us our health and even our lives.

But with the right ATTITUDE we can save ourselves from this horror – it may not be too late. Start by reading about healthy foods, there are literally hundreds of books on the subject. My own is titled, How to Cook Healthy Meals in Minutes’.  I designed the recipes and wrote the book after a visit to the UK and seeing so much obesity, often in quite young people. Also, I was overweight and desperately wanted to do something constructive about it.

When my ATTITUDE changed so did my weight.

We need to be aware that SUGAR is just as addictive as cigarettes, alcohol and social drugs. And like these, SUGAR is as much a killer.

Parents, give your children a chance to lead healthy lifestyles. Feed them wholesome foods, leave the package rubbish and soft drinks on the supermarket shelves and do yourself a favor – Live healthy live longer.
