We’ve all heard that eating too much sugar is bad, but why? Well, here are some negative effects of over-consumption of sugar.
Sugar can harm the body in countless ways. Below are the serious implications of a high-sugar diet.
Rising obesity rates have been attributed to added sugar. Sugar increases your hunger and desire for more sugar. Excessive sugar consumption may also cause resistance to leptin, which is an important hormone that regulates your appetite.
Excessive consumption of added sugars increases the chances of obesity, high blood pressure, and inflammation, which are risk factors for heart disease.
There are a number of lifestyle factors that account for diabetes. However, there is a clear link between excessive sugar consumption and diabetes risk.
Excessive amounts of sugar may increase your risk of developing certain cancers. This is due to the increased inflammation caused by sugar. Sugar is also linked to obesity and insulin resistance which are risk factors for most cancers.
These are just a few of the many reasons why a high-sugar diet is detrimental to your health.
