Sugar: The Bitter TruthOctober 15, 2009
This is why you can eat fat and not get fat but why you cannot eat sugar and not only get fat but end up with clogged veins. Fructose is metabolized differently by the body. It does not activate the satiety center of the brain so you keep eating and eating and eating. While you are dying the corporation are raking in your money along with Big Pharma for all the medications you need to stay alive.
Pay particular attention to the ingredients in soda. I tell people this all the time but they never believe me. Soda is basically three things: caffeine, sugar (high fructose corn syrup) and sodium. Why sodium? Sodium dehydrates humans so it makes you thirsty. Why caffeine? People think it’s to keep them awake. Wrong. Caffeine is a diuretic. That means it makes you urinate which further dehydrates you. Finally why the sugar? Once again people think because it tastes good. It does taste good but that’s not the only reason Coke and Pepsi put it in their drinks. It actually masks the salty taste of all of the sodium so you can continue to drink in pleasure.
Now you are drinking and getting dehydrated at the same time and your brain doesn’t know anything about it until you’ve been through a six pack and your stomach simply cannot hold anymore. You’ve probably been to the bathroom a few times to empty the tank as well. This is cold-blooded scientific murder. Just because it takes years of addiction and overconsumption to make people sick or kill them does not excuse the the simple fact: This is murder for money.
