Many people today prefer to eat processed foods for their quick, easy meals and snacks. The added sugar in many processed foods increases the calories.

This article will explain the effects of excessive sugar consumption on health.

Sugar consumption increases the risk of heart disease. These factors include obesity and inflammation as well as increased levels of blood sugar, triglycerides and blood pressure.

Sugar, and especially fructose can contribute to atherosclerosis. This leads to clogged arteries.

Sugary foods and beverages have a high Glycemic Index, which causes your blood sugar levels to quickly rise. This rapid rise in blood sugar and in insulin leads to a release of more androgens in the body, which increases oil production and inflammation.

Type 2 Diabetes
Sugar consumption can cause obesity and insulin resistance. These conditions increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetics. Insulin controls blood sugar levels. Resistance to insulin can cause blood sugar spikes.

High sugar diets can increase your risk of depression. This increased risk for depression is believed to be caused by neurotransmitter dysfunction, inflammation and swings in blood glucose.
