guideline clamps down on intake of free sugars
Sucrose, maltose, dextrose,
fructose, it's all basically the same; they turn into glucose. To test
for hypoglycemia you take a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. Fructose takes a
little longer but ends up the same glucose. Refined or concentrated sugar
causes excess glucose and from it your cell walls harden. This reduces
the ability for nutrients to enter the cell and creates malnutrition of
Sugar sets about unbalancing the
body's mineral relationships manifesting itself in degenerative and
harmful conditions. Manganese, cobalt, copper, zinc, and magnesium are
depleted to utilize sugar. Minerals are synergistic. Throw one out of
ratio and the rest are adversely affected.
Proteins are digested with the help of trace minerals. Many allergies are
caused by undigested proteins.
Chromium picolinate is very
popular these days. Sugar increases urinary excretion of chromium.
Sugar's imbalance of the Calcium phosphorus ratio is a common pathway of
Ever since mother's milk, (or

nurturing. Sugar is more of a drugging pharmaceutical
chemical than it is a nurturing food.
