Shocking anti-advertising about the dangers of sweets. When words are already powerless.
Sugar is the household name for sucrose (12C * 11 H2O). Cane and beet sugar (granulated sugar, refined sugar) is an important food product. Normal sugar refers to carbohydrates, which are considered valuable nutrients that provide the body with the necessary energy. Starch also belongs to carbohydrates, but its absorption by the body is relatively slow. Sucrose, on the other hand, is quickly broken down in the digestive tract into glucose and fructose, which then enter the bloodstream.
Glucose provides more than half of the body's energy costs. The normal concentration of glucose in the blood is maintained at 80-120 milligrams of sugar per 100 milliliters (0.08 ~ 0.12%). Glucose has the ability to support the barrier function of the liver against toxic substances due to its participation in the formation of so-called paired sulfuric and glucuronic acids in the liver. That is why ingestion of sugar or the introduction of glucose into a vein is recommended for some liver diseases, poisoning.
If the sweet passion only left a mark in the form of fat folds on the sides, the case of jokes would not have gone further. But no, excess sugar in the diet kills a person, in the most direct sense. And this death can hardly be called painless, pleasant. The problem is that, like in the case of alcohol or smoking, the appearance of painful symptoms means that the sore has already reached the finish line and the real struggle for life begins instead of treatment.
