Sugar impacts the immune system--who knew?

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

The article says sugar and Vitamin C enter cells the same way. If the blood has too much sugar, the white cells get sugar instead of the vitamin C for high immunity.

Who knew! emoticon

    Sugar seems to affect just about everything. That's why I need to cut back....again! It's especially hard this time of year.

    Sugar is pure EVIL! Our body has zero need for sugar.

    Yeah, sugar has a HUGE impact on the immune system. If you have a cold and want to keep it, and make it much worse, just eat a lot of sugar. You can make your cold last really long or even end up really really sick.

I think you will enjoy this information, and be shocked by it. I watched it a few months ago and the information makes a lot of sense.
