Since childhood, we get used to the fact that there is always sweet on our table, whether it’s sweets, cookies, other confectionery, not to mention drinks. Foods that contain sugar are naturally delicious, but at the same time, they are not really useful, because they can cause different diseases.
First of all, this concerns teeth, because dentists say that the main cause of caries is sugar, which in the daily diet should not be more than five teaspoons, and this applies to all foods and beverages consumed during the day.
What Can Lead a Great Sweet Eating
Leptin, a hormone that regulates energy metabolism and hunger in the body. In those individuals who eat sweets in large quantities, the concentration of this hormone is at a low level, as a result of which a person does not feel full of satiety, which leads to overeating. And, as is known, overeating is one of the reasons for the appearance of excess weight.
Despite the fact that all products with a high sugar content are high in calories, it practically does not quench the hunger, while adding extra pounds, which even those people who regularly exercise can not get rid of, while eating a lot of sweet.
Recently, the number of people suffering from diabetes, which often appears due to malnutrition, is growing all over the world. Scientists from the UK found that often the cause of this disease is sweet fizzy drinks, and this applies not only to fat, but fat people.
Many people know that salty foods contribute to the appearance of hypertension, and not everyone realizes that the cause of increased blood pressure may be sugar, which also has a detrimental effect on the work of the heart and blood vessels. And this is not speaking about more serious diseases, for example, renal and hepatic insufficiency, as well as pancreatic cancer. Such data were obtained as a result of a study carried out for seven years, which involved thousands of people of different sex and age.
