CHOLESTEROL SECRET 'SUGAR vs. ACIDOSIS
Americans Are Addicted To SUGAR... and they don't know it!
It is a forced addiction because almost every food product contains a CORN SYRUP 'the worst possible sugar source for human consumption. After all it is man-made substance at the cost next to zero... just like all generic drugs.
And knowing that corn and soy are either Genetically Engineered or Genetically Modified... you know the answer...
SUGAR is the real culprit in addition to fats. SUGAR is the major hidden cause of High Cholesterol!
So, why doctors are pretending it is the fat? It is really interesting because indirectly it is... but not animal fat, your own body converts unused sugar into fat.
It takes only a few hours and if sugar is not used for the energy, it turns into fat. So... if your life style is busy, if you face health challenges preventing you from physical activities you are facing high cholesterol sooner or later, even diabetes and heart disease.
Because low fat diet won't address this problem focus should be on Hidden Sugars.
Where to look for HIDDEN SUGARS?
Sugar in food products can appear under deceptive names like glucose polymers... maltodextrins and Carbohydrates.
In addition, starchy foods like potatoes, bread, pastry, noodles etc. can easily turned into sugars... It is normal.
What is not normal how body is handling that extra sugar. 32 teaspoons of sugar each day the average American consumes according to statistics. And often they don't know it.
It is no SECRET that 12 ounce can of soda contains 9-12 teaspoons of SUGAR!
So... what else can be worse?
DIE-T drinks! All of them should be banned. Die-t or Die prematurely... should be the slogan.
Soft Drinks and so call Juices where (Water + Corn Syrup are the main ingredients) are next in line after Soda Drinks, competing for the second place in the sugar content.
SUGAR is ACID forming and can contribute to Acidosis. As the result too much acid can makes you very sick.
Acidosis can mimic many different symptoms... Whole body chemistry is affected when that happens and can be dangerous.
Metabolic Acidosis is trigger by starvation or missing meals, diarrhea or kidney failure. And don't forget about Aspirin!
ASPIRIN is acidic and causes an increase in the acid production by cell metabolism. There is another yet Acidosis to be concerned... Respiratory Acidosis.
Your breathing pattern can contribute to Respiratory Acidosis when too much carbon dioxide is accumulated in the blood... The end result is increased blood acidity.
HOW TO PREVENT ACIDOSIS?
If you skip meals or if you feel too ill to eat blood sugar drops quickly setting stage for the Acidosis. Symptoms are troublesome: nausea, vomiting and stubbing headache.
The above symptoms are often mimicking illness itself... In such case you should go to the Emergency.
HOW TO STOP MILD ACIDOSIS?
Acidosis can be prevented if at the onset some food containing sugar is taken every hour or so. Any fruit is fine raw or cooked but not much... eggnog or milk with honey but only little sips at the time.
Plus... if vomiting sets in sweet orange juice or water with honey every 15 minutes can help... alternate with salty water to replace lost fluids and electrolytes. (*See tip below)
DON'T stop the above even if vomiting is persistent.
And when the crisis is over... All focus should be on the extra nutrition and rest. Soft Drinks should be avoided at that time.
WHY doctors are blaming the fat not the Sugar?
It is so much easier to prescribe Cholesterol lowering drugs than to educate patients...
By the way, too much Sugar reduces Immunity up to 90% according to available data... More than 50% population is medicated and over medicated regardless of age.
SWEET ALTERNATIVE TO SUGAR
Stevia is non-caloric sweet herb and only 1 drop or 2 can satisfy your desire for sweets. After all it is 300 times sweeter than sugar.
Check your Health Food Store... Stevia is widely available in the liquid form.
* Quick TIP: Celtic Salt is rich in all natural minerals... you can buy Celtic Salt in your loco Health Food Store.
Most Salt brands are striped from minerals! The same minerals are later added to various supplements and other Health Foods. And because the extra processing you are overpaying for those minerals when you buying supplements mixed with synthetic Vitamins.
