Sugar = Cancer

sugarToday I would like to tell you the truth about sugar and sweeteners. Most of the sweeteners and sugars are extremely bad for you because they destroy your immune system, they support the cancer diseases and they mess up your brain. If you want to improve your health, then stay away from these bad sweeteners like:¬†white sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, fructose, sucrose, dextrose, and¬†other artificial sweeteners. If you still want or need some kind of sweetener, then you can at least change to raw natural honey, xylotol, and pure maple syrup. To improve your health you must either stay away from the bad sugars or lower your consumption and start replacing the bad with good instead. If you’d like to know more about this problem and why FDA lets companies sell products like this then you should search the internet, believe me, you won’t like what you’ll find out, especially how they try to control the population on earth by killing lots of people with poisonous foods like sugars, colorings and fats.
