Yes, I knew that sugar reduces our resistance. After I binge on it I often get a cold, flu symptoms, or a cold sore.

Hmmm- the traditional birthday cupcake at elementary school is the gateway for a germfest. Yet another reason to limit the school celebrations to once a month .

Nancy, that's the hard part, of course, getting him to take a break from it. emoticon

Judy, I think it would be interesting to see if there is an actual link between sugar consumption and pain. My husband also has chronic pain that has gotten worse these past years and so has his sugar consumption. Let me know if you find a connection

Very interesting and motivating! Thank you. My husband suffers from chronic pain. I think he is addicted to sugar also. I wonder if his flare-ups are related to heavy sugar days.

WOW, I will think of this as I'm eating sugar. I wonder if you use it, meaning exercising when indulging, can it actually be used by the body in the form of the carbohydrate it is?

Oh my! I was not aware. I feel sugar is a drug sometimes....it seems harmful to the body as well as an addiction--this time of year is really tough. emoticon

"The amount of sugar in a two and one-half cans of soda can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs by 40 percent. Sugar has an immune-suppressing effect that kicks in less than 30 minutes after consumption - and it may last five hours. No such effect, however, results from complex carbohydrates or starches."
