SUGAR CAN KILL YOU
SUGAR CAN KILL YOU
IMPORTANT SOURCES OF HEALTH INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET
Skip Orem (00:00):
I continue to be fascinated by sugar. How can something that tastes so good, brings so much pleasure, how can it be so deadly? But it is. I have a love/hate relationship with sugar. I love the taste of it so much, and I hate it. I hate it because I’m certain that it contributed to me getting prostate cancer. I’ve worked hard all my life to stay in shape. I would enjoy eating sugar and foods with sugar in them because I knew that if I control the portion and the calories, with my exercise program, I’d be okay. I’d stay in shape. I’d stay healthy. I wouldn’t get fat. Fact is that was a lie. I enjoyed sugar, the candy. I exercised daily. I controlled my portions. I was sure that I was bulletproof.
Skip Orem (00:58):
But, everybody, I did not stay healthy. I got really sick. Cancer paid me a visit, tried to wipe me out. Lots of things combine together to give us cancer. But I have this strong belief, and much of my research proves this out, cancer loves sugar. Please, everybody, at the very least, stay under the daily sugar gram allowance. For men, no more than 150 calories from sugar per day, no more than 36 grams per day. For women, it’s even lower, 100 calories per day, no more than that, only 25 grams of sugar per day. You don’t really need to count the sugar calories if you just stay under the grams. And everybody, know this about sugar, sugar can kill you. It causes weight gain. It increases your risk of heart disease. It increases your risk of Type II diabetes. It increases your risk of cancer, I know that. It can cause depression. It’ll actually accelerate the skin aging process. It ages your cells. It drains your energy. Again, I’m going to say, know this about sugar, it can kill you.
