Show us a man who would not like sugar and sweet foods. The fact is, he doesn’t exist! Most people adore sweets and do not want to cross them out of their lives. Sugar is a common ingredient in nearly all foods that we consume every day. In fact, it is very addictive product!

A study conducted by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) found that sugar intake increases dopamine levels in the same way as cocaine. Moreover, scientists state that long-term utilization of sugar can lead to a reduction of dopamine levels. To suppress depression or avoid it, people should consume even more sugar than usual.

If you like chocolate sweets and cakes, and cannot imagine your life without them – you are a sugar addict! You probably know that sugar harms your health, right? Despite your sugar addiction, you need to reduce the consumption of sugar, because it’s very addictive, increases the serotonin levels, subdues the immunity, weakens the eyesight, causes premature aging, raises the risks of diabetes and more.
