HoneyBeing writers of health topics has conditioned us to reflexively respond to any discussion of sugar with thoughts of diabetes. It is indeed the most showcased of the sugar-related disorders, and many people have been misled into believing that diabetes is the only, or at least the primary, sugar-related disease. This popular belief is patently false, and such deceptive simplifications are tempting to embrace.

One of the lies perpetuating the confusion about sugar's role in health is namely the "sugar is bad for you" (e.g. sugar is unhealthy) lie. It is granted that most of our modern "sugars" are indeed horrible, but truly natural sugar, as designed by God, benefits human health in multiple ways. It is harmless to an individual who consumes it appropriately. It is important to pause for considering why the lie exists. It was created for the same reason that all of the other medical industry lies were fabricated. It protects the members of the medical industry, and the chemical industry upon which they rely. Instead of being honest about both the benefits and harmfulness of differing sugars, they instead blame their victims for not having enough dietary self-control whenever diseases such as diabetes manifest. However, it is what they carefully avoid saying which is especially revealing. One of these avoided facts is that sugar is necessary for human life. Sugar is next in importance to only oxygen. The two are inextricably linked in a symbiotic relationship. Most of the cells of the human body survive by a respiration process that draws in oxygen to biochemically "burn" sugar. This is how the human body derives its energy for life. If oxygen is the breath of life, then sugar is the fuel of life. The next layer of the onion is the frequent promotion of sugar-free diets, supposedly for the sake of health. In actuality, there is no such thing as a sugar-free diet, for it would soon produce a tortured death. Even when we categorically avoid all carbohydrates, we still get large amounts of sugar from our fruits and vegetables. We may even get tiny amounts of it from protein. In other words, sugar is so important that God put it everywhere. So when doctors tell us to get healthy by avoiding sugars from one side of their mouths, they are actually telling us with their other face to eat even more sugar through the increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. They absolutely know that natural sugar is healthy, since they must admit that fruits and vegetables are healthy. There is another big truth of the situation that is being hidden in the shadow of the big lie. Outside of gross lifestyle abuses, sugars tend to be only harmful when they are engineered or modified by the chemical industry. Either this is correct, or apples and carrots are extremely dangerous.

The aspect of greatest complexity in this report is something that we have avoided in our previous work, because of its complexity. It involves the closely connected relationships between serotonin, sugars, and health overall. This is the mother-load that we have wrestled with for years -- a pot at the end of a rainbow that ties almost everything together. Serotonin is much more than we were led to believe. The vast marketing campaigns of the pharmaceutical companies have falsely convinced most people that serotonin is a simple and well-understood neurotransmitter, which plays a pivotal role in states of clinical depression. It really can play a role in depression, but rarely in the manner in which we were told. What they have avoided citing is that about 90% of a body's serotonin is not found inside the brain. Roughly 80% of it exists in and around the gastrointestinal tract, which should make the point about how often and how grandiosely the pharmaceutical industry lies to us. When compared, serotonin's action inside of the brain is fairly insignificant to its other jobs. Therefore, anti-depressant drugs are mostly altering the gastrointestinal system. The industry does not even have proof that anti-depressant medications can cross the blood-brain barrier. The true brain connection is an indirect one from the gastrointestinal effects of the drugs. This will never be honestly cataloged to the public by the pharmaceutical companies for fear that their house of cards will come down. The truth is that serotonin’s main job in the human body is to aid in the absorption of nutrients. This is where the anti-depressant smoke-and-mirrors routine begins to become almost comical. The real reason why the anti-depressants sometimes work is because they preserve the serotonin within the body (not the brain), which improves nutrition, such as improving the retention of magnesium and balancing the blood sugar. For all practical considerations, the drugs are actually just digestive aids like probiotics. In other words, an extra serving of baby spinach every day would provide equal or better benefit to the drug regimens. Serotonin's connection to sugar is that it is needed by insulin to regulate blood sugar. This too effects the depressed, since unstable blood sugar alone is enough to cause severe depressions. For this latter group with blood sugar issues, an apple a day would be more productive in keeping the psychiatrist away, especially with a pinch of cinnamon.

While some of these statements may seem a bit facetious, they are literally true. Readers should notice the overall pattern of the drug industry deviously dealing with nutritional issues through chemistry, while keeping the patients completely ignorant of the truth. The sugar connections to their drugs and serotonin explains the way in which they have designed their drugs to be maximally addictive. Take for example that an alcoholic is not truly addicted to alcohol. What alcoholics are actually addicted to are the serotonin-effecting sugar alcohols. The pharmaceutical industry discovered this decades ago, and opportunistically used this addictive phenomenon to create a new class of drugs that would literally make patients endlessly beg for more. The intoxicating (sugar-effecting) pills make patients disregard their troubles like a strong drink would, and then the poor patients are never free again. The chemically-induced addictions are easier to foster and are more severe than those from liquors.

Sugars play a role in every major disease in existence and most of the minor ones too. Take heart disease and arthritis as examples of how sugar-induced inflammation can ravage a body. The improper usage of sugars within the human body is what fuels cancer cells too, for cancer cells survive solely through a fermentation process instead of standard respiration. We need not mention diabetes with it being so self-evident. Of course, it is not just the body that is effected. Having healthy sugar, in the right amount, is equally essential for mental health, even though the psychiatric industry tells us straight-faced that it is a matter of serotonin and its "re-uptake".

Because of the unique nature of cancer, even the healthy sugars should be limited for cancer patients, and this means that many of the anti-cancer juicing protocols are dangerous. Even the noteworthy Gerson Protocol is risky to some degree. Take as a case history when Steve Jobs switched to an entirely unbalanced diet, consisting of only carrot juice. It was likely his lack of nutrition, combined with excessive amounts of sugar, which ended his life. It was a diet that primarily benefited the cancer cells, while starving the good ones. It destroyed whatever remained of his immune system.

# methanol from aspartame etc. becomes formaldehyde Rich Murray 2015-09-27 23:19
Aspartame releases 11% of its weight as methanol into the human blood flow from the human GI tract.

Methanol has a human blood half-life of 3 hours, while its potent antidote, ethanol, has a half-life of only 1/3 hour. Ethanol in the blood preoccupies ADH1 enzyme, preventing it from making up to 16 times higher molar concentrations of methanol into formaldehyde inside human cells.

Humans are ten to a hundred times more vulnerable to acute and chronic methanol toxicity than any other creature, as human cells lack protective biochemical defenses against high levels of ADH1 enzyme in 20 tissues making methanol into highly reactive uncontrolled formaldehyde hydrate within the cytosol.

The gradual chronic results for each of the 20 tissues include cumulative random inflamed spots of harm, autoimmune diseases, many cancers, birth defects, and impaired aerobic cellular ATP energy metabolism in the mitocrondria, leading to acidosis from build up of lactic acid from anerobic energy metabolism.

Thus, evidence that this happens for any tissue adds to the evidence that all 20 tissues are harmed.

Methanol comes from wood, peat, and cigarette smoke; aspartame; dark wines, liquors, and fruit brandies; fresh tomatoes and black currants, and unfresh fruits, juices, and vegetables, cut up, heated, and preserved wet in sealed cans, jars, and plastics (due to the degradation of pectins), as well as methanol added to gasoline fuels in Iran and China.

Prof. WC Monte, Food Science and Nutrition, Arizona State University, retired 2004, gives a free online archive of 782 full text medical science references at his site WhileScienceSleeps, and in August 2015 published his peer-reviewed research study on methanol and autism (as a human birth defect):

142 mg methanol weekly is provided by 6.5 cans aspartame diet drink, about 1 can daily, the amount used by 161 moms, whose kids became autistic, over twice the methanol taken by 550 moms who had no autistic kids.

# Erythritol Kenneth Quinn 2015-09-27 23:22
I have read a few of these articles on the different sugars and they always leave out Erythritol. I buy it on Amazon.com and it states on the bag: 0 calories, registers zero on the glycemic index, and non-GMO. It tastes just like sugar with no aftertaste. Since it seems to good to be true, what are the negative qualities?

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol, so you should reference that section under Processed Sweeteners.

# Great Article Kathleen Scott 2015-09-28 20:58
Thank your for writing such a great article. I will be sharing this for sure. I buy raw local honey and grow my own stevia. I use honey for baking and making jams and jellies instead of sugar. Glad to know I am doing somethings right.

# on table sugar David Tutwiler 2015-09-29 18:28
I worked in a lab where we used a product called Biocide which means "kills any living thing." It is chlorine dioxide. We wore Tyvek suits, surgical gloves, and respirators in a six percent humidity environment to use it. I remember the manager who refused to wear the gloves had the skin eaten away around the nail of all of his fingers from the Biocide.

If this is what is used to process table sugar, it's no wonder sugar abuse bothers the heart, and every other part of the body. Making this connection is such a new outlook on the matter.

Or "cattle bone char"? Prions will survive that.

Say grace before feeding your face.

Read "Sugar Blues" by William Dufty (one penny on Amazon.)Very interesting history of the global sugar industry from the beginning. Brave the political bias, and it's an eye-opening read- worth every penny (shipping was $3.99.)

I'm wondering if these substitutes are practical and accessible. very interesting article, none-the-less. Type this title in a search:

You seem smart, yet you haven't learnt the most important lesson. Trying to out-engineer God is why we are having the problems that we are having.

How do you interpret my words as "trying to out-engineer God"? I made three points with an anecdote, a book, and an article. All in agreement with your article. I would never do such.

My outlook on that is "To walk on water, don the full armor."

Sarah said that trying to outsmart God was the problem, but not necessarily that you were doing it personally. In other words, you missed the biggest problem, but that does not make you the problem. The point was that for the last 10,000 years, people have been trying to improve nature through sorcery, pharmakeia, and now its being called "chemistry". It's an old story. Throughout that expansive period, not a single man-made formulation has ever had a reasonable help-to-harm ratio for health. Take for example Tylenol as one of the "safe" potions. It damages the liver, kidneys, and the intestinal flora to stress them for years and thereby cause a myriad of seemingly unrelated health problems, including a debilitated immune system. So, was that headache really worth it? Oh, but it gets better. Something that is blacked-out of the U.S. media is that Tylenol, when mixed with alcohol, can kill a human being within hours. It's why there are so many college-age "binge" drinkers who died, because they tried to treat their hangovers with Tylenol.

Anyway, we didn't accuse you of being the problem, David. However, it is precisely the weight of that armor which may pull you under.

# Organic coconut sugar? Alexandra Schenker 2016-03-13 20:45
I like your article and agree with it, I just wanted to ask you if organic coconut sugar a good sugar is, cause where I live it's impossible to get non processed sugar, but you can get coconut sugar. Any insight would highly appreciated (I suffer from hashimoto thyroiditis) thanks!
