Why is Too Much Sugar Bad For You?

There are many reasons why sugar can be bad for you, so make sure to understand why that is!

Sugar is delicious, there’s no doubt about that, but too much of it can negatively harm your body. Almost everything that we eat has some sugar in it, but making sure that you don’t eat an excess amount is important for your overall health. 

What does sugar do to your body if you ingest too much of it? Whenever you eat an excess of sugar, the extra insulin that lies in your bloodstream can be harmful to your arteries causing them to become inflamed. They not only become inflamed, but they also become thicker and more stiff that can damage your heart over time by stressing it out. Too much sugar can lead to heart failure, heart attacks, heart disease, and even strokes.

Eating too much sugar can also affect your pancreas, kidneys, your body weight, and even your sexual health. Too much sugar can also cause high blood pressure, raise your blood sugar levels, and could potentially lead to type 2 diabetes.
