Sugar is that one ingredient which is found in almost all the items and no matter how fit and healthy you are, sugar is bad for you because it has calories, and experts believe that sugar consumption is a major cause of obesity and many chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes.

Here we list 5 reasons why eating sugar is bad for your health

Sugar causes blood sugar levels to rise and plummet

Unstable blood sugar can leave you experiencing mood swings, fatigue, and headaches. It also contributes to cravings, which begins the cycle of false hunger.

Affect immunity system

It is said that  sugar can interfere with the way your body fights disease and also leads to infections.

Causes tooth decay

Sugar sits on your teeth for a longer time and causes decay more efficiently than any other food.

Increases stress

Most people prefer to eat something sweet while in stress but after eating sugary snacks, stress hormones begin to compensate for the crash by raising your blood sugar which results in irritability and anxiousness.

Chromium deficiency

Too much sugar can lead to chromium deficiency. Chromium is a trace mineral which helps regulate blood sugar in the body.
