Happy Halloween--Genetic Surprise Explains Our Sweet Tooth

Halloween turns millions of kids (and some adults) into candy-loving monsters with more than an ample supply of candy to satisfy their "sweet tooth." Now researchers have moved closer to understanding why some people cannot resist the impulses brought on by sweets. However, just because there seems to be a "genetic" reason for your sweet craving, this does not mean you should indulge it. If you haven't read the 124 Ways Sugar Can Destroy Your Health article, I thought Halloween night would be the perfect opportunity to read it again.

Here is a partial listing of how sugar can destroy your health:

  • Leads to overweight and obesity
  • Suppresses the immune system, inviting infection and disease
  • Causes premature aging
  • Can lead to cancer of the breast, ovaries, prostate and rectum
  • Interferes with the absorption of calcium and magnesium
  • Contributes to diabetes
  • Depletes energy and reduces the ability to build muscle
  • Contributes to heart disease
  • Increases the risk of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Can contribute to osteoporosis
  • Assists the uncontrolled growth of yeast infections
  • Is the main problem behind bowel movement issues
  • Can cause depression
  • Leads to tooth cavities and gum disease
