The real reason why sugar weakens your immune system

The real reason why sugar weakens your immune system

The use of refined sugar has skyrocketed in America – and its overconsumption has placed an enormous burden on the immune system.  Yet, the news you’re about to read is never mentioned in the lamestream media.

Historically speaking, in the early 1800s, the average American’s sugar consumption hovered at a modest few pounds over the course of an entire year.  But, now, yearly sugar intake has soared to 155 pounds!  There’s no doubt: this increase is directly connected to horrible health outcomes.

For example, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now warns that a shocking two out of three adults in the United States are currently overweight or obese – placing the majority of Americans at increased risk for life-threatening diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and fatty liver disease.

How is all of this related to the immune system?  There’s now evidence that the excessive sugar in American diets may jeopardize the body’s supply of essential vitamin C – and “handcuff” our ability to maintain a healthy immune system.

Ginger Found To Benefit People With Liver Disease

Ginger Found To Benefit People With Liver Disease

One of the most common types of liver disease is nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and it generally occurs in people who are sedentary, overweight and/or eating too many simple sugars.  Medically speaking, the risk goes up in individuals with type 2 diabetes and other conditions related to metabolic syndromes like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Conventionally speaking, there’s no effective therapy for NAFLD – aside from making lifestyle modifications that minimize damage to cells and help control blood sugar levels.  Of course, if you present any of the symptoms (mentioned above) to a conventionally-trained physician, you’ll probably just be sent home with a bag of (toxic) prescription drugs – which only add to your troubles.

However, one study suggests that adding ginger to an anti-inflammatory lifestyle may benefit individuals with liver disease.  Today, we’ll explain why this herb (sometimes referred to as a spice) is so valuable.

Indoor air pollution linked to serious health problems

For many, the term “air pollution” summons up images of factory smokestacks and idling buses – all belching clouds of toxic fumes into the atmosphere. But there is another type of pollution that involves the air quality inside our homes, schools, and offices – and it can have serious consequences. In truth, indoor air pollution – which scientists say can trigger such deadly conditions as stroke, heart disease, and lung cancer – causes a staggering 3.8 million deaths worldwide a year.  (Why haven’t we heard more about this global health hazard?!) While the dangers of some indoor air pollutants – such as secondhand cigarette smoke – are fairly obvious, others are more insidious.  Even beloved members of our “fur families” can affect air quality in the home, due to their dander.
