Shocking anti-advertising about the dangers of sweets. When words are already powerless.
Sugar is the household name for sucrose (12C * 11 H2O). Reed and beet sugar (sugar, refined sugar) is an important food product. Conventional sugar refers to carbohydrates, which are considered valuable nutrients that provide the body with the necessary energy. Starch also belongs to carbohydrates, but its digestion by the body occurs relatively slowly. Sucrose is rapidly cleaved in the digestive tract for glucose and fructose, which then enter the bloodstream.
Glucose provides more than half of the body's energy expenditure. The normal concentration of glucose in the blood is maintained at a level of 80-120 milligrams of sugar in 100 milliliters (0.08 ~ 0.12%). Glucose has the ability to maintain the barrier function of the liver against toxic substances due to the participation in the formation in the liver of so-called paired sulfuric and glucuronic acids. That's why taking sugar inside or injecting glucose into a vein is recommended for certain liver diseases, poisoning.
If the hobby for sweet only left a trace in the form of fatty folds on the sides, it would not go further than jokes. But no, an excess of 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, as in the case of alcohol or smoking, the appearance of pain symptoms means that the sore has already reached the home stretch and instead of treatment the real struggle for life begins.
