SWEET BUT DEADLY PART 2
But artificial sweetener use small place content calories? After some research, these artificial sweeteners increase the appetite, which is usually not desirable.
Another problem is that their use maintains and increases the desire for sugar. This is how, in countries where they are frequently used also raise the sugar quantities consumed.
The best attitude is to switch from natural or artificial sweets to eating naturally sweetened. Instead of cakes or sweet drinks, why not eat fruits, this way quiting the traditional desert? Taste buds adapt at any age!
Most often, our fear of making necessary changes is due to ignorance, the fact that we do not know why it’s good to act in one way or another. Try to informe from serious sources and, if possible, look for the company who already taken the first steps towards a healthier lifestyle, for knowing the practical aspects.
Not long ago, Werner Waldhäusl, editor of Diabetologia, wrote that the in largest part of the globe, mankind suffers from a chronic intoxication with food. And is not necessarily to consume animal fats for our body to be invaded by these dangerous molecules. The liver, which handles digestion products, can flood the blood with saturated fats, which are already in the body. Anything that encourages the liver to do this, ie to release into the blood a large amount of fat, can be as harmful as the consumption of these fats. The latest research shows that sugar harms heart as well as saturated fats. Also, it has been found that too frequent meals can be the cause that liver turns into a machine that produces non-stop fats.
Here’s what happens. Every time we eat, an amount of insulin is released into the blood. This hormone of vital importance secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas, encourages our tissues, especially muscle cells, to grasp the glucose after meals, which is leaking through blood vessels. This it’s particularly necessary, because the large amounts of glucose from blood is a dangerous material. The glucose can attach to the proteins, preventing them to fulfill their role, which can lead to vision loss, kidney damage and peripherals pressure obstruction that may require amputation.
But the insulin has another vital role. After meals, insulin stops the fat release from the liver into the blood. Why after meals? Like glucose, these fats are dangerous if staying for too long in the blood. They are released as triglycerides, with molecular escort, as lipoprotein with very low density (VLDL). But, in the blood, they alter biochemical, becoming prone to deposite in the arterial walls. These fats are not wanted in the blood circuit, especially right after meals, because the enzyme that can remove from them from circulation are busy with the just consumed fats.
