Sugar – The Sweet and Silent Killer

Posted on May 29, 2014 · Posted in Blog, General, Personal

Many people reading this article may not like what I have to say, yet for many, it will save your life. I always ask people, “Does a good pastor tell you what you want to hear, or what you NEED to hear?” The time has come where we need to stop fooling ourselves and learn to face reality. So without further adieu:

There is no such thing as healthy sugar, period!

Americans are so addicted to sugar that we will do anything to continue to satisfy our cravings. We justify it by saying that we only use “healthy” sugar, as if that is something in existence. I cannot do justice to the tremendous damage that sugar is doing to your health, but let me make a few quick points, give you references for further study and a couple of great recipes at the end.

I want you to know I speak from experience on this issue. I grew up a sugar addict, from sugared cereals, kool-aid and soda by the case to all the candy I could afford with my weekly allowance. By 30, my body was wrecked and I didn’t know why.

What is sugar?

How did God make sugar?  Sugar cane is a STICK. It was never meant to be processed and consumed in large amounts. What about agave? It is still heavily concentrated sugar. It doesn’t come out of the plant that way, does it? What about fruit? Gorillas in zoos all around the country are getting diabetes and dying because nobody understands this. We eat too much fruit as well. Fruit juice is just concentrated sugar. The very first step I tell anyone with Diabetes is to eliminate ALL sugared drinks. Drink water and herbal teas. Propel “water,” and Vitamin “water” are loaded with sugar. Look at the first five ingredients in “Pediatrician recommended” Pediasure.  It’s mostly SUGAR!  Stop the madness!

Critical note to parents:  ADD and ADHD are NOT REAL. It is a made-up diagnosis used to sell drugs. Groups of doctors sit around and make up names for an illness and what drugs they will sell. I wish I was making this stuff up. Want the answer to this made up illness (look it up, these terms don’t exist in England and most other countries)? Stop giving your kids sugar and candy with artificial flavors and colors, give them nutrition and it magically disappears. Oh, and they need to go play outside, not playing video games inside all day! Really, it’s that easy!

In 2010, over ten million children in the U.S. were prescribed psychiatric drugs. Children 5 years and younger are the fastest growing segment of antidepressant prescriptions. These drugs and others, like Ritalin, cause violent, aggressive and psychotic behavior and can cause heart attacks, stroke and sudden death. They are prescribed for ADHD and have the same damaging effects as morphine, opium and cocaine. 12 of the 14 school shooters involved in the Columbine and Virginia Tech tragedies were on these types of drugs. Children are innocent victims and we are being duped by a broken and corrupt medical system.

Ok, back to sugar. Does this scenario sound familiar to anyone? Step one, you admit you are a sugar addict, after years of denial (maybe because of a health problem or maybe just a new level of awareness). Step two, you throw away all your processed table sugar and stop eating the “obvious” junk like cookies, cake and candy. Step three, you load up on agave because its “healthy” sugar. You still make smoothies every morning with three or four types of fruit and tablespoons of agave because it’s “healthy.” You haven’t changed anything. You’re still a sugar addict! The number one mistake vegetarians make is they are so focused on not eating meat that many become sugar junkies.

What happens when concentrated sugar enters the body?

Sugar is poison, plain and simple. Your joints swell, your liver swells and your brain swells. Know anybody diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis? They are either a sugarholic, carbaholic (bread, pasta,etc.) or a combination of both. Cut out the sugar and grains and it usually disappears.

Sugar will block the healing of your body if you have any injury or chronic illness. Sugar feeds cancer and all infectious diseases. Sugar blocks the absorption of the nutrients you are eating, especially all of your minerals.  In 1975 it accurately predicted the health disaster that is currently taking place in America because of our addiction to sugar.

Does sugar cause Diabetes?

You bet, 100%. The American Diabetes Association will tell you otherwise. They say take your drugs and insulin, eat what you want! And people believe it! This makes me sick to my stomach. The pharmaceutical companies will make an average profit of $115,000 per Diabetic patient over the course of their lifetime. They actual tell the reps this as part of their training! Do you not think the pharmaceutical companies know exactly what your disease is worth to their pocketbooks? This is why they help you “maintain” your disease, not reverse it. You can reverse diabetes in less than one month! Stop eating sugar. Sadly, many people can’t do it. It is so addictive (more addictive than cocaine) that people would rather lose their eyesight, their feet and live in misery than stop eating the poison that caused their disease. Taking drugs does not stop the disease process!

I sincerely hope this is sinking in. Please think about your family and your children. Stop giving your children candy as a “reward.” We are stuck in patterns that need to change. Focus on limited amounts of fruit, raw clear (colorless)agave and raw honey. Just because honey and agave are better choices than processed table sugar does not give us a free pass to abuse them. They will still severely damage your health! Stick to lemons, limes, avocado, strawberries and other low sugar whole fruits. Shoot for less than 15 grams of sugar per day (ONE apple, small orange, few berries, etc.) This will definitely take some effort.

Sugar is a true addiction for many people. Get help! Please! I mean it!
