Pure White & Deadly: The Dangers Of Eating Too Much Sugar (Infographic)

Increases Your Risk Of Various Diseases

Most people associate high sugar consumption with an increased likelihood of obesity, but the list of adverse health effects doesn’t end here. A diet high in sugar also puts you at higher risk of fatty liver disease, heart disease, kidney complications and even cancer.

Detriment To Your Oral Health

Sugar causes tooth cavities, and when these go untreated and are exposed to more sugary foods, they worsen and can cause other complications like gum inflammation and infection. Your oral health also impacts your general wellbeing, so if you think you could still eat all the sugar you want and burn it off at the gym, you’re wrong. Bad oral health is directly linked to an increased risk of heart disease and a weakened immune system.

Accelerated Ageing

Sugar is known to make you age faster. Not only will the way you feel and the appearance of your skin be affected, but researchers have also theorised that excessive sugar is linked to an accelerated decline in cognition and general brain function as you age.

Your Mental Health Suffers

When your blood sugar levels are imbalanced, your mood suffers as a result. Excess sugar consumption increases your chances of developing depression.
