Yes, according to some medical specialists in the USA, there is a connection between sugar and cocaine. Just like cocaine, we need more and more sugar to give us the same pleasure we get from sweetened substances. When we eat sugar it lights up the same area in the brain that lights up when cocaine in ingested.
A pediatric endocrinologist on 60 minutes television show tells us here just what he thinks of sugar. He believes it causes heart disease - cardio vascular disease (CVD).
Another medical specialist tells how his research shows that sugar spikes insulin which in turn is taken up by tumours, that is, cancer in our body, and feeds on the insulin. His message? Cut sugar, cut insulin, stop the cancer growing.
These medical specialists are firm in their belief that there is a public health crisis and it is caused by the sugar and high fructose corn syrup added to our food and that we must limit our consumption of sugar for our own health's sake.
Watch these experts here and maybe you will be able to start limiting your sugar intake so that you can stay healthy or return to health.
