White refined sugar is known to be the same as cocaine. It is so bad for you; you never want to touch it, ever. Not all sugars are equal.
People don't realize that sugar that comes in an apple, although it is called sugar, is extremely different than sugar that comes in a piece of cake. Once you cook sugar, it is completely different. Anything that is refined is taken out of context. If you took sugar cane, and juiced it and drank the sugar cane, that is good for you, because that is a whole food kind of a product, where all the minerals are in the sugar, everything that is supposed to come as a complete package with the sugar to balance it out comes. That is the same way an apple works, you eat an apple, you get good fruit sugar, and you also get all these vitamins, all these minerals, the rest of the package, and the body assimilates all things together.
When you refine the sugar, you cook it, and then you take just the sucrose part, just the white refined part; it destabilizes your body intensely.
Blood pH is very narrow latitude, a very narrow stream; the same thing applies with blood sugar. Your blood sugar levels have also to be maintained at a very specific level. One of the problems with all of our society is that our blood sugar level is out of whack, that is the diabetes epidemic that we are in the middle of. White refined sugar changes your blood sugar level so quickly that it is almost impossible for you to sort it out, it is really difficult. White refined sugar might be one of the worst things you can put in your body besides fried foods. Simply avoid it at all costs. There are a lot of wonderful alternatives. There is agave nectar, there is maple syrup if you needed it, and anything that is coming as kind of a whole food, not a refined product is going to be fine.
Do not be fooled into thinking that honey is healthy. Honey is not healthy. Honey behaves exactly the same as white refined sugar when it comes to your blood sugar levels. It is just exactly the same. So as destructive as white sugar is, honey is the same thing.
