    Sugars are a type of carbohydrate, from natural sources fruits, vegetables and dairy products, and can be produced and added to foods for many functions such as sweetening, flavor enhancement, preservation of damage, and others.

    There are many types of sugars, classified by scientists according to their chemical composition, of these sucrose sugars, known as white sugar or table sugar, a sugar made up of glucose and fructose, and is found naturally in fruits and vegetables, and is available in a large amount of cane sugar and beet Sugar, where it is extracted for commercial use.

    White sugar can cause excessive white sugar to foods and beverages, including: 
    Weight gain: Sugar is thought to be one of the main causes of high obesity around the world. Fructose, a component of white sugar, increases Of hunger and desire to eat compared to glucose in starches, and excessive fructose may also lead to leptin resistance, which sends signals to the body to stop eating. In addition, drinking a lot of sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with an increase in the amount of visceral fat.

     Increased risk of heart disease:
     As evidenced by evidence, high-sugar diets cause obesity, inflammation, high levels of triglyceride, blood sugar and blood pressure, which are considered a risk factors for heart disease.

     Linked to acne:
    Sugary foods lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar levels and insulin hormones, causing an increase in the secretion of Androgen, the production of oils, and inflammation.

    Increased risk of diabetes:
    A high-sugar diet can lead to obesity and insulin resistance, both of which are risk factors for diabetes.

     Increased risk of cancer:

    Eating too much sugar can lead to obesity, insulin resistance and inflammation, all of which are risk factors for cancer. A study of more than 430,000 people found that intake of added sugar was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer, pleural cancer, And further studies are needed to understand this more complex relationship.

     Increased risk of depression:
    A study of 8,000 people found that men who consumed 67 grams or more of sugar a day for 22 years were 23 percent more likely to develop depression than men who ate less than 40 grams a day. Another study of more than 69,000 A woman who has a higher intake of added sugars increases the risk of depression compared to those who eat less, and researchers believe that fluctuations in blood sugar, irregular neurotransmitters, and inflammation may be a cause of the harmful effects of sugar on mental health.

    Accelerating skin aging:
    Eating high-carbohydrate foods with refined carbohydrates and sugar is linked to the production of compounds called AGEs, compounds made up of the interactions between sugar and protein in the body that play a major role in skin aging. These substances cause collagen and elastin proteins that help the skin expand and maintain So the damage of these proteins may lead to sagging in the skin.

     Increase Cell Aging:
     Large amounts of sugar have been shown to precipitate telomere, compounds that form the end of chromosomes that are similar to protective caps, preventing chromosomes from damage or fusion. It is worth mentioning that these compounds naturally decrease with age, However, eating large amounts of sugar may accelerate this; this in turn increases cellular aging.

     Increased risk of fatty liver disease:
     When eating a lot of added sugar, has been associated with the presence of a large amount of sugar fructose in particular the formation of overload the liver and stress. A study of more than 5,900 adults showed that people who drink sugar-sweetened beverages daily are 56 percent more likely to develop non-alcoholic fatty liver disease compared with people who do not drink the same amount.

    Volatility of body energy levels:
     Sugar-rich and low-fiber foods, fiber and fat can negatively affect energy levels in the body, causing rapid increases in sugar and insulin levels in the blood followed by a sharp drop in them, which can lead to large fluctuations in the body's energy level.

    Increased risk of kidney disease:
    Because high levels of blood sugar permanently damage the blood vessels in the kidneys. To affect the health of teeth: Eating too much sugar may cause drilling; because the bacteria in the mouth feed on sugar and excrete acidic substances, leading to the removal of minerals from the teeth.

     Increased risk of gout:
     The added sugars raise the levels of uric acid in the blood, increasing the risk of developing or worsening gout. Accelerating cognitive deficiencies: High-sugar diets may lead to poor memory and are associated with an increased risk of dementia.
