Sugar may taste sweet but its health effects are the reason why it is very important for us to stop eating sugar. The excessive consumption of sugar unbalances the pH levels of the body, which makes it difficult for us to lose weight and maintain good health. The sugar and the acidity it creates provides an internal environment that is ripe for the overgrowth of yeasts, fungi, and dangerous bacteria.

We end up feeding these microorganisms and promote their growth and place more toxic acid in our body.
