Sugar & Bad Health

Sugar: a drug more
destructive than cocaine
polluting chocolate

Chocolate: a "needle" for injecting sugar

As the following tables show, the main reason why chocolate is not a functional food, is not a medical product, is not something to eat lots of every day - is one simple reason - chocolate is polluted with too much sugar, and much fat. Yeah, the sugar gets rid of the bitterness, but at what cost to the health of your body?

Como muestran las tablas siguientes, la razón principal por la que el chocolate no es un alimento funcional, no es un producto médico, no es algo que puedas comer en cantidades todos los días - es una sencilla razón - el chocolate está contaminada con exceso de azúcar, y mucha grasa. Sí, el azúcar deshace de la amargura, pero a qué costo para la salud de tu cuerpo?

The Worst Unhealthy Chocolates
     ( > 88% Sugar and Fat)

If possession of 10 to 20 grams of cocaine is an arrestable offense in the United States, and if producing, selling and distributing kilograms of cocaine is drug trafficking that is punished with decades of prisons, should consumers of 10 to 20 grams of these chocolate products be arrested for drug possession, and should these chocolate manufacturers be shut down by governments for drug trafficking (and their executives jailed), if as discussed below, added sugar is comparably addictive to, and as medically useless as, cocaine? Is it child abuse to allow an (overweight) child to consume any of these products, especially those that are over 50% sugar, if added sugar is as destructive and as medically useless as cocaine? If added sugar is comparably addictive to marijuana, and more medically useless, should added sugar be a Schedule I drug under the rules of the U.S. DEA, especially for the following products?

From the paper, "If Sugar is Addictive .. What Does It Mean for the Law?", available at: www.aslme.org/media/downloadable/files/links/j/l/jlme-41_1-gearhardt-supp.pdf. We quote: "LEGAL TOOLS: Regulatory tools and approaches are diverse and include labeling (disclosure and warning), advertising restrictions, taxes (special excise duties, value-added taxes and sales taxes),24 product bans or restrictions, litigation (especially class action litigation), self-regulation, a reduction of farm subsidies and sugar programs, and the development of education programs."
Note: "Avellana" is the Spanish word for hazelnut.

Los Peores Chocolates Insalubres ( > 88% Azúcar y Grasa).   Si la posesión de 10 a 20 gramos de cocaína es un delito con privación de libertad en los Estados Unidos, y si la producción, venta y distribución de kilogramos de cocaína es tráfico de drogas que está castigado con décadas de prisión, deberían ser detenidos los consumidores de 10 a 20 gramos de estos productos de chocolate por posesión de drogas y deberían estos fabricantes de chocolate ser cerrados por los gobiernos debido al tráfico de drogas (y sus ejecutivos encarcelados), si, como discutiremos a continuación, el azúcar añadido es tan adictivo y médicamente tan inútil como la cocaína? ¿Es abuso de menores permitir que un niño (con sobrepeso) que consumen de cualquiera de estos productos, especialmente aquellos que son del 85% al 95% de azúcar y grasa, si el azúcar añadido es tan adictivo y médicamente tan inútil como la cocaína? Si el azúcar añadido es más adictivo que la marihuana, y médicamente tan inútil, ¿debe ser el azúcar una droga de Clase I bajo las normas de la DEA de los EE.UU.?

And what happens to your brain when you consume too much added sugar in these chocolates? ¿Y qué le pasa a su cerebro cuando se consume demasiado azúcar añadido en estos chocolates?

Cocaine & Sugar

And what happens to world health when too much sugar and fat is consumed in all foods, not just these chocolates?

Diabetes & Death Diabetes & Death

Lying Chocolates (poisoned with Fructose)

As sugar is increasingly realized as an addictive toxin, food producers are looking to alternatives such as artificial sweeteners (which have their own problems). One idiotic, dangerous group of such food producers can be found in South America, where they advertise "sugar-free / libre de azúcar" chocolates using ... FRUCTOSE. Not only is fructose a sugar (table sugar, sucrose, is 50% glucose and 50% fructose), but fructose is much more destructive to the body than glucose (fructose causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) because no cellular processes use fructose - the body can't process it, so it ends up in the liver where it is converted into fat. So not only are such products life-threatening for diabetics, deceived by these "sugar-free / libre de azúcar" labels on chocolate products, they are harmful to the population as a whole. All of these criminal chocolates must be removed from the marketplace.

In 2015, medical researchers reported that long-term, global consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (lead by the sodas such as CocaCola which heavily use high-fructose corn syrup) cause 184,000 deaths a year due to diabetes and heart disease. Fructose is worse than sugar (which is 50% glucose and 50% fructose) - fructose is just as horrible for diabetics. See death study at: Circulation, June 2015. And just as bad, in 2000, scientists in Israel documented how this consumption of fructose-sweetened beverages causes fatty liver disease. See disease study at: [Fructose-based] Soft drink consumption is associated with fatty liver disease, Journal of Hepatology, 2009. Those chocolates using fructose have about half-as-much fructose as disease-causing beverages. Fructose chocolates are just as horrible for the body.
