These 3 Important Reasons Why Sugar Should Be Limited

Many say that eating too many sugary foods or contain a lot of sugar is the main ticket you have diabetes. That is true, but there are several other diseases that are also associated with excessive sugar consumption.

As quoted, some reason need to be disclosed why sugar consumption should be limited, and this was the reason

1. High blood pressure

Do not think that people with hypertension only sensitive to salt and sodium, because excessive sugar is not good for people with hypertension. People who eat too much sugar, especially simple sugars, more likely to have levels of HDL or good cholesterol is low.

This can lead to an increase in triglycerides, or bad fats in the blood. It is precisely the risk clogging the arteries and blood vessels, is the cause of heart disease.

2. High Cholesterol

People who eat too much sugar are more likely to have high levels of HDL, or good cholesterol, higher levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol, and higher levels of triglycerides, or blood fat. It helps the arteries and blood vessels, causing heart disease.

3. Diseases of the liver

Strict diet so do not let any little sugar into the body is believed to worsen fatty liver disease. But on the contrary, too much sugar will be a bad effect on insulin and encourage fat into liver cells, which causes inflammation and scarring of the liver, which eventually causes cirrhosis.

So the consumption of sugar to taste, not too much nor too little. To reduce the consumption of sugar, replace it with a more natural foods like fruits. Sugar diet can also be done by reducing soft drinks, not much to eat ice cream and candy.

Pollutants in milk and dairy products

In Bavaria,(south of Germany) the pollutants in milk and dairy products are being controlled over 25 years by the laboratory muva kempten (Veterinary medical analytical office of Kempten). This laboratory has monitored the organochlor-pesticides, PCB, halogenated solvents and heavy metals.

The results of these analysis made it possible to find the cause and to reduce the contamination. At the moment most of the former pollutants of organochlor-pesticides have fallen below detection level in milk from Bavaria. Only lindan is still increased.

This is an example of handling the environment problems making long terms monitoring of food with the cooperation of the laboratory the agriculture and the industry.

The muva kempten now checks organochlor-pesticides (OCP) polychlorated biphenyles (PCB) dioxines, halogenated solvents, mycotoxines, heavy metals, radionuclides, phtalates, nitroso compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon substances, organophosphor- and pyrethroid-pesticides using multi methods of preparation of the material, GC-PND and GS-MS. These methods enables the muva kempten to analyse all kind of food.

One important concern of the laboratory is the contamination of food caused by migration of packing components into the food, such as styrol from polystyrol, dioxines from cardboard, plasticiser, heavy metals, nitrosamines from rubber, and (Bisphenyl-A-diglycidilether) Problems which come from coating of tin cans.

Organic migrations are detected by GC-MS and HPLC and AAS and inorganic ions migrations with AAS.About 70% of canned food were found to be contaminated with BADGE and BFDGE (Bisphenol-A-diglycidilether) according to the French magazine “test achat”.Heavy contamination was found in cans containing fish and foods with high amount of acid like lemon, vinegar or tomatoes.

The European Commission made has completed in early 1999 a study concerning the safety of BADGE. According to this Study there is no danger coming from BADGE. Therefore the Commission rose the maximum allowed amount of BADGE in foods from 20 microgram in one kilogram up to 1 milligram in one kilogram food.This was intended only for tin cans coated with plastics. As there are no limits established for for coatings with clear varnish many countries use this high value also for varnished cans.

The toxicology of BFDGE and the catabolic products of BADGE and BFDGE are still unknown.

“test achat” recommends to change from canned food to food in glass packaging. Discarding the immersion brine can further reduce BADGE and BFDGE. Contamination of cleaning and disinfection agents are also possible as contaminants of food. This has to be monitored.

The cooperation between official supervision of food, agriculture and industry has brought good results in research and improvements since repressive rules of supervision had been changed to open discussion and mutual good will of all parts engaged in the long way from farming to the consumer.
