To add slightly to what I said the other day about sugar in this blog:

It’s been established that it is not sugar that’s really the issue, don’t be fooled, it’s about lifestyle, plenty of these cases comes down to lifestyle, but obviously it’s easy to be laser focused on sugar than to get people to personally change their life styles, alot of people have to make compromises and they do make compromises without very much excuse to preserve their health because they realize what it could mean for their well-being, I don’t see why it’s any different when it comes to “sugar”, that’s why to me, this talk about sugar being bad is just bullshit — my diet entailed sugar for years, and yet, i’m still healthy which suggests to me that a lot of these “studies” are not very accurate, which in turn means you have to be careful with that, and like I said, it’s not really sugar that’s the underlying problem, it is ultimately personal responsibility.

Too much of anything isn’t good for anyone and obviously that includes sugar, but it’s about balance, i’m sure that despite the amount of “sugar” my personal daily diet has, overall at the end of the day, i’m still getting the essential vitamins, i’m still drinking sufficient water. I don’t have an issue with Vegetables, I don’t have an issue with fruit, and i’m still a petty active person. Also there is no proof that a person that doesn’t take sugar is necessarily “healthier” than someone who does take sugar in their diet who doesn’t have serious sugar-related issues. I have not seen this to be the case in everyday life at all, that’s a myth. As I said it’s the overall lifestyle of an individual plus genetics that plays a huge role in impacting one’s health, not solely the adding or subtracting of something(S).

So yeah I do have a sweet-tooth but my diet overall is actually helpful than it is harmful, which points back again to this whole health thing being an individual thing, it’s not really sugar, it’s not really salt or whatever else single dietary element these “studies” have tunnel vision on, it actually comes down to a much broader issue of lifestyle and genetic differences.

That is why alot of these studies fall short of anything actually conclusive. The root of many of these problems happen on a genetic level of origin, so unless you’re actually studying the development of some people even before inception, it would be challenging to say conclusively what is the real cause of some of these diseases. Most of these studies are studying people after the fact, where you can only say at best that certain elements contribute negatively to other people’s already compromised situations and that therefore a diabetic should not take sugar, someone who is lactose intolerant should avoid milks etc etc etc, these are severe cases, whereas someone like myself, does not necessarily have a serious or severe issues with things that may contain sugar or milk, or salt (I think you get the idea) in general, and thus is not negatively affected nearly to the extent as some of the aforementioned individuals who are, that should clearly refrain from alot of these food supplements that make them sick and that they cannot handle.
