Health and Sugar
There is nothing wrong with any food
What is important is the balance of consumption
Is overconsumption of Sugar the cause of anger?
There is no relationship between sugar and abnormal behavior (anger, snap)
Recently, a notion that there is an increased number of people who "snap" and that this is caused by overconsumption of sugar.
But this is a total misunderstanding of no scientific ground.
Impaired secretion of insulin has been described in the previous section as a cause of diabetes. When sugar is consumed in large amount, insulin is secreted to suppress the rise of blood-glucose level.
In a situation of this nature, there is a report from America of a clinical case of a low blood-glucose condition due to an excessive secretion of insulin, which led to an unstable mental condition and abnormal behavior. This is thought to have become the basis of a notion that an excessive intake of sugar causes leads to "snapping".
This clinical case is a rare situation and it is difficult to conceive that "snapping" tendency or behavior can be improved by avoidance of sugar consumption.
We would rather think that it is more effective to have some sweet cocoa and relax.
Will B1 be lost?
Vitamin and calcium will not be lost due to intake of sugar
There are rumors that the consumption of sugar leads to lack of Vitamin B1 and that calcium will dissolve due to acidity in blood from the lack of B1 or that calcium will lose its efficacy. But these rumors are wrong.
It is true that Vitamin B1 is needed to metabolize not only sugar but also carbohydrate in the body into energy. But that is different from the argument that B1 is taken away or is destroyed.
Furthermore, the notion that sugar destroys calcium is absolutely a rumor.
Sugar in a water solution shows a weak acidity, and the water solution will turn acidic when sugar is absorbed in microorganism.
The test result that a piece of human bone melted in the sugar solution seems to be the basis of a rumor that sugar melts the bone (remove calcium). However, blood and body fluid are of homeostasis nature in the body that will not turn acidic.
In a healthy person, pH (hydrogen ion concentration) of his blood is always maintained at a steady level.
There is almost no Vitamin B1 or calcium in sugar (refined sugar), but it is also impossible to absorb all the needed nutrition from a single food.
What is important is to maintain a well balanced eating habit.
