Daily, we add sugar to our diet because of its sweetness. However, we poison ourselves every day without knowing it. In fact, nowadays, it is used excessively. Instead of consuming natural foods such as vegetables, fruits, tubers, and grains with a reasonable amount of natural sugar, some prefer to consume sweet items such as ice cream, candy, cake, biscuits, soft drinks, desserts, and much more -- which contain an excessive amount of Refined Sugar. Consuming refined sugar in excess can result in obesity, weak immunity, and hyperinsulinemia.
