Should You Eat Sugar?
Published: 3/2/2013

Is sugar affecting your health? Various health issues, from mood swings to rheumatoid arthritis - can be affected by sugar intake. Although clinical studies have had mixed results, you may notice an improvement in your moods, a lessening of your arthritis symptoms and a decreasing frequency of yeast infections when you reduce or eliminate sweeteners from your diet.

If you have no particular health or mood problems related to your sugar intake, consider that the consequences of high sugar intake can take years to manifest, and the best course is to limit your consumption before problems develop. Rather than switching to artificial sweeteners, which may have greater health risks, try to satisfy your sweet tooth with such natural treats as dried fruit, candied ginger, fruit ices (sorbets or water ices) or - Dr. Weil's personal favorite - bites of pure maple sugar.
