Addicted to Sugar?

The US Department of Agriculture estimates the average Citizen consumes 152 pounds of sugar per year -- almost three pounds of sugar each week! How can this be?

Sugar comes in many forms: soft drinks, candy, desserts, fast food and so on. Because sugar is inexpensive, tastes good and is habit-forming, food companies and fast-food restaurants add sugar to their meals whenever possible.

Sugar, like any addictive substance, makes you crave more sugar. For example, a piece of chocolate gives you a little extra energy for an hour or so. As soon as the effect wears off, you feel tired and maybe a little depressed. So to feel perky again, you want another piece of chocolate. You use sugar to solve problems caused by sugar.

Hundreds of scientific studies prove that sugar makes your body store fat. Excessive fat increases your chance of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and death. Sugar hurts your road to success.

In 1972, L. Ron Hubbard wrote the following:

"Sugar is a deceptive thing."

"Sugar, that is supposed 'to produce energy' does so only at the expense of physical health for sugar does not build up a body, it only burns it up."

"The result of a heavy intake of sugar and carbohydrates* is to feel tired all the time -- no pep."

"If one is going to run a car, he has to feed it the right fuel and oil. If one is going to run a body it has to be fed the right food and that has to include protein."

"By eating your hamburger and vegetables and leaving alone the candy bars and cokes, you will begin to build up a head of steam."

-- L. Ron Hubbard (*carbohydrates: a food group that includes potatoes, rice, bread and sugar)
