Sugar. The average American will consume nearly 170 pounds of the substance each year. And yet, most underestimate its debilitating effects over time. In Dr. Howard Cohn’s most recent Wellness Wednesday video, he urges his viewers to reduce or, if possible, eliminate the consumption of sugar.
“Now sugar on a sugar cane, that’s a little different. But that’s not what we get. We get white refined sugar. It’s not just a zero-nutrient. It’s a negative nutrient. Which means its costs our body to even process it” – Dr. Howard Cohn.
Eating raw cane sugar is easy on the body, also points but keep in mind that sugar eaten by the general public is refined white sugar, which is classified as a negative nutrient. Instead of providing your body with helpful nutrients, it does the opposite effects and actually saps your body of vitamins and other necessary nutrients. This is due to the fact that sugar is such a foreign substance to our body that we must expend enormous amounts of energy to even process it. In addition, the sugar binds to the positive nutrients in our body, possibly making one more susceptible to illness and disease.
If you choose to eat sugar, it’s best topair it with a green vegetable to help negate the effects of the sugar. In addition to not providing any nutrients to the consumer, it also contains an enormous amount of calories, which may lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and a host of other medical complications. So do yourself a favor and reduce your consumption of sugar today!
