What is important is the balance of consumption
Relation between sugar and activities of life
Normally, the only source of nutrition for the brain is glucose
Carbohydrate is one of the three main nutritions. Of these three, sugar is relatively faster to be decomposed into a monosaccharide compared to polysaccharide like grain and noodle, which makes absorption faster.
It is very effective when an energy needs to be replenished quickly. An urge for something sweet is due to an instinctive demand for energy.
Normally, the only source of nutrition for brain is glucose, but the brain cannot preserve it. The main ingredient of sugar is glucose and sucrose combined with fructose and, therefore allows an easy absorption of glucose. If you are feeling tired from intensive studying or long-hour driving, you can make it a practice to consume sweet drinks containing sugar or sweet confectionery. The sweetness of sugar should refresh you.
Is sugar the cause of diabetes?
Diabetes is a malfunction of carbohydrate metabolism
The name "Tou-nyo-byo (diabetes)" is a misleading term that literally indicates sickness due to overconsumption of sugar to cause one's urine to contain glucose. But this is a misunderstanding.
Diabetes is one of the lifestyle diseases caused by the impaired secretion of a hormone called insulin, which is an abnormality of carbohydrate metabolism due to functional failure to effectively use blood glucose in the human body.
Diabetes is attributable to causes like genetic factor, lack of exercise, overeating, stress, etc., and does not mean that one is exempt from diabetes by not eating sugar.
