Sugar makes things tasty. Few people get enthusiastic about sugar-free cakes, chocolate or biscuits. It is of course not really healthy, but how much harm can a little sugar in its time?
Not much, as long as you keep it in its time. Sugar in itself is not carcinogenic or harmful. The overweight that comes from too much sugar is. Ellen Kampman, professor of Nutrition and Disease at Wageningen University, says in the AD: “More than 15,000 scientific studies have now been conducted on nutrition, exercise and cancer prevention. This shows that we need to limit added sugars as much as possible. “
It increases the risk of obesity. “And being overweight increases the risk of more than a dozen cancers.” But if you eat a biscuit or drink a glass of fruit juice, you get none of it. “It is about structurally ingesting too much energy and exercising too little.”
So don’t worry too much about the harmfulness of sugar, but keep an eye on the scales a bit.
