Unsweetened Life

(essay)

The controversy over the harm caused by sugar consumption has been going on for years. I believe that sugar affects the state of our body, so I take the time to study this issue. In their recent research, scientists have come to a new conclusion — eating a lot of sugar can cause bipolar disorder and aggressive behavior.

American scientists from the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado have published a study on how sugar affects mental health. Experts say that high sugar intake in the daily diet can cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, as well as bipolar disorder and aggressive behavior. Experts have determined that one of the most abundant sugars in nature, fructose, makes the body think it is starving, which in turn causes mental changes.

Hunger awakens the instinct for survival, and the reaction of obtaining food encourages a person to take more risks, quick decision-making and aggressiveness. Doctors explain that it was this reaction that genetically helped our ancestors to get food and survive. In our time, the launch of such processes in the body after consuming sugary foods and drinks can lead to mental disorders.

“We present evidence that fructose, by lowering energy in cells, triggers a food-seeking response similar to fasting,” said lead author Richard Johnson.
Scientists point out the need to avoid sugar consumption as much as possible. But if that can’t be done, I found statistics from the American Heart Association (AHA) that can help regulate sugar intake:
• Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 g or nine teaspoons);
• Women: 100 calories per day (25 g or six teaspoons).

But it’s important to note that there is no need to add sugar to your diet. The less you consume, the better. Don’t forget to take care of your health.
