Sugar isn’t so sweet

So this morning, I logged on to my computer and opened up internet explorer. The home page is And you know how they always have stories or topics on the home page? Well this morning, one of the stories caught my eye. It was about sugar. And we all know how bad sugar is… even though we do love it sometimes!


The story consisted of 6 side effects that sugar has on our bodies, and how bad those side effects can really be. Guess what the 6 effects included?

1.       May increase your risk of diabetes

2.      May cause acne

3.      Can hurt your heart

4.      Increase your chances of depression

5.      Increase your risk of a yeast infection

6.      Increase your risk of cancer

Yikes…What do you think of that list? Are you surprised at any of those?

I knew sugar wasn’t something that was good for you, but cancer? Really? That is scary!

If you want to read more about the article, check it out here!

Have you found out any news (good or bad) about the foods you’re eating??

See ya this afternoon! 🙂

    I think excessive sugar is just bad for you. I’ve never been concerned about my sugar intake though. I’m surprised weight gain isn’t on that list, but I suppose that’s a given!

    Thanks for popping by my blog! We’re prone to get along because we’re both 21 & in school 😉

    This is very interesting stuff- I’m not too big of a sugar fan though. Truvia and Stevia are more of my thing

    Thanks for commenting on my blog so I could check yours out!! 🙂
    I definitely try to watch my sugar intake; I try to substitute stevia whenever possible. But I don’t think that sugar is necessarily a bad thing in moderation. I’m a firm believer of indulging in what we want once in a while!

    I can’t live without the sweet stuff, but I use both real and fake sugar in moderation.
