Our body needs sugars to function, but too much of it can seriously weaken our health. In fact, over-consumption of sugar is the main cause of diabetes, a serious disease that according to the World Health Organization (WHO) is one of the leading causes of death in the world. In addition, diabetes can be the cause of other diseases, such as heart, eye or stomach problems.
That is why, more and more people who want to have a healthy diet, decide to reduce the consumption of sugar in their diet. However, they often do not know what types of sugars exist and what impact it have on their health. A person may think that quitting sugar in coffee is the solution, but still consuming processed foods such as soda, breakfast cereal or industrial bakery containing high fructose corn syrup, a type of sugar that increases glucose levels in blood much faster than a teaspoon of sugar in the coffee.
