Sugar is 'the most dangerous drug of the times'

Paul van der Velpen, the head of Amsterdam's health service, the Dutch capital city where the sale of cannabis is legalised, wants to see sugar tightly regulated.

"Just like alcohol and tobacco, sugar is actually a drug. There is an important role for government. The use of sugar should be discouraged. And users should be made aware of the dangers," he wrote on an official public health website.

"This may seem exaggerated and far-fetched, but sugar is the most dangerous drug of the times and can still be easily acquired everywhere." ...

Mans modern sedentary lifestyle and all the chemicals which manufacturers put into food are much more dangerous than sugar.

"Food for our bodies
Just as plants need a source of energy to live and grow, so too do our bodies. Every activity from breathing to running requires energy. We get our energy from the nutrients in food.
The main sources of energy are carbohydrates (starches, sugars), fats and protein. The body can be compared to an engine which converts the energy in food into the energy we need to live. All energy in food is measured using a unit called a kilojoule (kJ) or kilocalorie (kcal).

1g of fat provides 37kJ or 9kcal
1g carbohydrate provides 16kJ or 3.75kcal
1g of protein provides 17kJ or 4kcal
You need energy for all the activities you do. The more active you are, the more energy from food you require." (sugarnutrition.org.uk)

I'm no expert on the subject, but I'd say that methamphetamines are a tad more dangerous than is sugar.

Mmmm...sugar. I mix it with solidified bacon grease and make sandwiches on white, heavily buttered bread; chugging it all down with a 2ltr jug of coke.

Why Mike of N.Y., if sugar was more expensive such as in the days before the Civil War, sugar was kept in locked chests in homes, so servants, etc., wouldn't steal it. It was the iPhone of pre-Civil War, and you do know people steal iPhones?
And long before that, salt was valuable. Maybe that was the most dangerous drug?

John U.K.,

By the way, apparently in Appalachia they might fight over a Mountain Dew and the sugar in it. 'Mountain Dew Mouth' Is Destroying Appalachia's Teeth, Critics Say.

The devil has coined a lot of phrases in order to catch people out, being the destroyer he is. One preacher once said, "Repentance is a bitter pill, but it effects a cure." Today's preachers want to add a bit of a sugar coating to take the bitterness out of what should be a remorseful and heart-rending repentance.

Just look at our friend John Yurich and his "I have embraced Jesus as my Saviour."

And the egotistical "I'm going forward at the crusade," to rapturous applause.

Besides which, US, sugar is bad for you.

And also, the devil has all the sweet shops.

jpw, I don't if you agree with both articles or not, but no, quite a few groups of people don't have extra salt added to their diets such as Eskimos and generally people living closer to both polar regions, and seem to function just fine without it.

Do, skinny people get and have diabetes? Yes, Dolores; but fructose (cane sugar) is certainly hasn't been a part of any man's diet until the last couple of centuries. There has been no health benefit found for it.

So, even if this gentlemen is a pot smoker himself, and let's say has some other bad habits as well, this still doesn't nullify what he has to say about cane sugar. The article I referenced (laboriously) with a tablet is worth reading.

By the way, I was not making light of such things as ecumenism, e.g., The Charismatics' Role in Ecumenism, but this article didn't have anything to do with that.

Did any of you read the first paragraph..this man is head of the health dept. In the Dutch capital city where the sale of cannabis is legalised??!! No one argues that sugar does cause health problems but is not cannabis actually a mind aitering drug that cano cause other problems as well..such as lack of motivation to work..if smoked serious damage to lungs? Diabetes runs in my family..both parents died from complications of this disease but sugar does not cause this disease but it causes overweight which does bring on Diabetes II..but since all starches turn to sugar in the body then wouldn't that have to be regulated as well..again "strain at a gnat and swallow a camel".

Jim, salt was sparse? I think that's bogus. Many Indian tribes used to go on yearly treks to get it. If you look at how foods were preserved and soured, it was with salt. These were foods soaked in a probiotic culture -- modern medicine is just now catching up to this. this would have been sea salts that had minerals in them, not the processed stuff.

They've got a generation believing their heart problems are because of salt (of course it should be in moderation!) while other issues continually come to the forefront.

I agree with this article,

Sugar is a drug.
