Nature Communiations journal, this month, reports on research that shows how sugar can feed cancer. This is worrying enough, but sugar attacks the body in other ways -
Brain - sugar interrupts the flow of neurotransmitters from the brain to the rest of the body - notably serotonin and dopamine, which influence mood. Therefore, too much sugar can increase the risk of anxiety and depression.
Heart- Increased sugar can increase the amount of bad cholesterol in the body and decrease the amount of bad cholesterol. This can lead to increased risk of heart disease.
Sugary foods convert to glucose, which leads to insulin being quickly released, raising the heart rate and risking heart disease.
Liver - The liver struggles to process excessive amounts of sugar. If it fails to process some then it will convert to fat cells. Increased fat cells mean weight gain and possible fatty liver disease and obesity.
Digestive system - Too much sugar causes bacteria in the small intestine -which can lead to bloating, acid reflux, gas and abdominal cramping.
