Sugar has had a bad wrap over the last several years and for good reason, sugar has no essential nutrients, is bad for your health AND destroys your teeth. If that’s not enough sugar can cause liver disease, insulin resistance causing diabetes, cancer, hormone irregularities, heart disease and it will make you fat. Sugar is in nearly all processed foods and the worst part is it’s very addictive. So although as dentists we have a justifiable anti-sugar platform since it is one of the biggest culprits of the dental problems we see on a daily basis, there are loads of other reasons aside from oral health that you should be avoiding this substance.
