The Sugar Consumption Connection: to Diabetes, to Cancer and to the Kidneys and Fluoridated Water Complications.

     I read an article that sugar consumption per person in the UK in the 1600's was about 7 lbs./yr. (world wide sugar shortage) and that by the 1850's in the USA it was about 52 lbs/yr and that in the USA today (2003) it is some where around 150 lbs/yr.  In other words: 
1600's =   7 lb/52 wk = 0.135 lb/wk; = 17.46 tsp/wk; =  2.50 tsp/day
1850's =  52 lb/52wk = 1.0 lb/wk.;  = 129.7 tsp/wk ; = 18.53 tsp/day
2003  = 150 lb/52wk = 3.0 lb/wk. ; = 389.1 tsp/wk ; =  55.59 tsp/day!  [ 0.43 lb/day!]
Article #1
below suggests a limit of 10 teaspoons per day which is ~ 35 grams.   [Click current graph
Sugar Chart from] [Where Added Sugar Comes From.]
(Updated: 3/7/11, 12/05)  
"The density of granulated sugar is 0.7 g/cc." 
 The density of granulated sugar is 0.405 oz/in^3  
  so 1 lb. of sugar contains approximately:
  454 g/lb x 1 cc x 1 mL x 1 tsp = 129.71 tsp
                 0.7 g    1 cc    5 mL               

  where:  1 tsp = 5ml ; 1 cc = 1 ml ; 1 tsp = 5 cc

  or  1 tsp of granulated sugar = 3.5 g.

 Diabetes1958-1994.jpg         The 12 oz. can of soda (Pepsi) I looked at today had 41 g. of sugar which is roughly equivalent to:  41/3.5 = 11.7 tsp of granulated sugar!  A lot of fruit punch drinks are the same!  What we need is to have our thirst quenched without sugar added; but, water gets old quick.  Why not fill up a pint glass with 75% water and 25% real orange juice or any other real juice.  The water is what we need.  The juice adds just enough taste to mask the boring taste of the water.
       Concerning the increasing prevalence of diabetes, what I would like to see is a graph of the rising sugar consumption per capita and the rising diabetes malady overlaid on each other.  If I were to guess, I'd guess that they would be very similar except for a time delay of about 20 years.

O.     Update: 10/28/15;  (Toxic)
Scientists: Sugar definitely toxic Tuesday, October 27, 2015 ;  ( 5:41 min.) (TIME) Fat was the food villain these past few decades but sugar is quickly muscling in to take its place. As rates of sugar-related disorders such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease climb, many experts believe that when Americans rid themselves of fat, they simply replaced it with sugar in all its forms.   But proving that the rise of the chronic diseases was actually linked to higher sugar consumption is a challenge. Dr. Robert Lustig, from the department of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, who has made a name for himself publishing books and research addressing the question of sugar’s effects on the body, wanted clearer answers. Now, in a paper published Tuesday, he and his colleagues believe they have come up with the definitive evidence that sugar, as Lustig says, “is toxic.”    More sugar video links below by Dr. Lustig.

03/28/15  In order to be more accurate this title should read Kill Glucose, Cure Cancer .  The reason is that the body changes sugar and carbohydrates imediately into glucose.  The key topic in the video is that cancer cells have a genetic defect that they cannot live off of ketone molecules but only glucose molecules; therefore reduce glucose for a peroid of time and wipe out cancer.  Note:  Because some cancers take 20 years to grow you probably will not need to be on a very low or moderate glucose diet for very long.   If you avoid sugar and carbohydrates too long you can develop Ketosis vs. Ketoacidosis: What’s the Difference? which can damage your kidneys.

It works because cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive and while normal cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel, cancer cells can’t.

             The Article #-1 below came from  ;   I have embolden & underlined some key phrases and concepts for clarity.
Article # 1.
> Sugar Consumption ‘Off The Charts’ Say Health Experts
> HHS/USDA Urged to Commission Review of Sugar’s Health Impact
> WASHINGTON - Citing Americans’ sharp increase in sugar
> consumption, a broad array of health and nutrition experts have
> asked the federal government to commission a National
> Academy of Sciences (NAS) study on the health consequences
> of sugar consumption. In a letter to the Secretaries of the U.S.
> Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S.
> Department of Agriculture (USDA), the experts cited medical
> evidence indicating that diets high in sugar can promote obesity,
> kidney stones, osteoporosis, heart disease, and dental caries.
> The letter was signed by Dr. George Blackburn of Harvard
> Medical School, Dr. Kelly Brownell of Yale University, Dr. Marion
> Nestle of New York University, Dr. Walter Willett of the Harvard
> School of Public Health, the American Public Health Association,
> the American School Health Association, C. Everett Koop’s
> “Shape Up America!” organization, the Society for Nutrition
> Education, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, and 38
> other professors and health groups.
> According to the USDA, people consuming 2,000 calories a day
> should eat no more than about 10 teaspoons of added sugar.
> USDA surveys show that the average American is consuming
> about 20 teaspoons of sugar per day.
> “Sugar consumption is off the charts,” said Michael F. Jacobson,
> executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
> “Added sugars - found largely in junk foods such as soft drinks,
> cakes, and cookies - squeeze healthier foods out of the diet. That
> sugar now accounts for 16 percent of the calories consumed by
> the average American and 20 percent of teenagers’ calories.”
> A government study found that in 1977-78 added sugars
> provided only 11 percent of the average person’s calories.
> Soft drinks, which contain about nine teaspoons of sugar per
> 12-ounce can, are a leading contributor to increased sugar
> consumption. The per capita consumption of soda has doubled
> since 1974. In their letter, the experts warned that soda pop may
> be contributing to osteoporosis because many teenage girls and
> young women drink soda instead of calcium-rich milk.
> In 1942, the American Medical Association (AMA) expressed
> concern about sweetened carbonated beverages, candy, and
> other foods rich in sugar but poor in nutrients. The AMA urged
> that “all practical means be taken to limit consumption” of such
> foods. Since 1942, soft-drink consumption has increased about
> seven-fold (excluding diet soda), and overall sugar consumption
> has increased by one-third.
> “Many Americans will make New Year’s resolutions to eat
> healthier and lose weight. Cutting back on nutrient-poor sugary
> foods, such as soda, cookies, candies, and pastries, will help
> people achieve their resolutions,” stated Dr. Margo Wootan,
> senior scientist for CSPI.
> The health experts’ letter also cited studies showing that most
> Americans are not eating the recommended levels of fruits and
> vegetables and that obesity rates in the U.S. have sharply
> increased. Twenty years ago, teens consumed almost twice as
> much milk as soda; today they consume almost twice as much
> soda as milk.
> The experts urged that an NAS study of sugar consumption be
> conducted to assess the full impact of added sugars on
> Americans’ diet and health. They said the study should also
> recommend future policy changes and research.
> “With all the focus on fat, we’ve forgotten about sugar. It’s time to
> rethink our national infatuation with sweets,” concluded Jacobson.

That article above came from     Concerning the increasing prevalence of diabetes, what I would like to see is a graph of the rising sugar consumption per capita and the rising diabetes malady overlaid on each other.  If I were to guess, I'd guess that they would be very similar except for a time delay of about 20 years or less.  You might as well overlay various cancers on the graph while you are at it.

Article # 2.
This is the sugar consumption to diabetes connection: , "20 WAYS TO MAKE NUTRITIONAL PROGRESS AGAINST DIABETES by Andrew W. Saul"
> If there are Musts to Avoid for a diabetic, they may well include the following:
> ONE: Eliminate Sugar
> No one would tell a child with a broken leg to jump off the garage roof.  But perhaps we
> should not even let children without broken legs jump off the garage roofs. Dietitians
> would never recommend that diabetics regularly eat lots of sweets. Yet the vast majority
> of us over consume sugar to the Nth degree. Can this not only aggravate diabetes, but
> actually CAUSE it? In the case of Type II, it is almost certainly so. And with Type I, the risk
> is there. There is no downside to avoiding sugar except, perhaps, for putting your local
> dentist on unemployment.
> Medical Evidence that Sugar Causes Diabetes, among other things...
> Cleave, T. L. The Saccharine Disease (Keats, 1975)
> To begin with, this book has nothing to do with the artificial sweetener known as
> saccharin.  The Saccharine Disease refers to excess sugar consumption as a key
> cause of chronic disease in our time.  Dr. Cleave, formerly a Surgeon-Captain of the
> British Royal Navy, wishes us to pronounce it "saccar-RHINE," like the German river.
> That we can do.  What we will have a harder time doing is admitting that he is correct in
> ascribing colitis, peptic ulcer, varicose veins, coronary heart disease, and diabetes to
> excess intake of simple carbohydrates.  A theory like that one needs a book to explain it
> and a lifetime of experience as a doctor behind it.  Here are both.
> It is party line medicine (and dietetics) that sugar consumption is pretty much connected
> only with tooth decay and obesity.  Since the 1950's, Dr. Cleave has been a voice in the
> wilderness, informing doctors of what they do not want to believe and patients of what
> they do not want to do.  Only the sturdiest readers want to tangle with a book that
> relentlessly takes them to task one sweet tooth at a time.  References are provided with
> each chapter, and suggestions for improved diet are compactly set forth in an Appendix.
> The Saccharine Disease is somewhat dry reading, although this is compensated for by
> its overwhelming scientific importance.  If there is indeed a root cause of illness, and that
> cause is our everyday use of sugar, it will take plenty of straight science to convince us to
> change our ways.  Even then, really innovative science has a way of being kept from the
> public, not by being disproved, but by being ignored.  If Dr. Cleave has been largely
> unsuccessful in influencing health policy so far, perhaps you will want to take up the
> banner after reading this book.
> There was a time when the director of the FDA (known then as the Bureau of Chemistry)
> was willing to state that sugar consumption could indeed cause diabetes. (Wiley, H.  A
> History of a Crime Against the Food Law, 1929).
> TWO: Avoid Milk
> It has been shown that milk consumption in childhood contributes to the development of
> Type-I diabetes. Certain proteins in milk resemble molecules on the beta cells of the
> pancreas that secrete insulin. In some cases, the immune system makes antibodies to
> the milk protein that mistakenly attack and destroy the beta cells Even so august an
> authority on children as the late Dr. Benjamin Spock changed his recommendations in
> his later years and discouraged giving children milk. (Dr. Julian Whitaker's Health &
> Healing Newsletter, October 1998, Vol. 8, No. 10.)
> THREE: Avoid Fluoride  
> (Citations that follow are courtesy of Darlene Sherrell 
> h.ttp:// [archived link] )
> (T)he concentration of fluoride recommended for fluoridation programs (the sacrosanct
> "1.0 part-per-million") is deemed to be entirely safe. An examination of the scientific
> literature reveals that this is not the case. Dr M A Roshal, in a 1965 issue of the journal
> issued by the Leningrad Medical Institute, reported that intake of fluoride - even at the
> apparently "safe" concentration of 1.0 part per million - caused derangements in blood
> sugar balance.  See also: THE QUESTION OF FLUORIDATION by the late J R Marier. (If you are avoiding blood sugar i.e. glucose should you stop drinking fluoridated water and stop using flouridated products?  Why are there no science reports? 2015.)

[ Back ]  
>>> "When considering water fluoridation, an individual must consume one liter of water fluoridated at 1 part per million (1 ppm) to receive 1 milligram (1 mg) of fluoride"
        (2012.  St. Pete reduced the Fluoride additive to 0.65 ppm.)  This means that the optimum adult daily water consumption of 8 glasses/cups of water would equal an ingestion of :     Approximately:   8 cups = 8 x 8 fl. oz/cup = 64 fl oz  x  1 L./33.8 oz = 1.89 mg Fluoride/day.  or 689.2 mg/year or 3,446.2 mg/5years which is equal to 3.44 Liters of Fluoride over 5 years.  Healthy kidneys can only flush about half of this; the rest goes into the bones and makes them abnormal [ "Fluoride Increases Hip Fractures" ]; See AND, in the History of Fluoride (1855 to present) link below, scroll down to the "1956 March 1956" date to see the estimated percentage of fluoride that is deposited in the bones i.e. 25-50%.  See also this date: "1957 Alcoa Aluminum" to see how the phosphate industry took over the evil of potable water poisioning.) .  See also: and see: History of fluoride from 1877 to date: for the world chronology of all fluoride diseases, lawsuits and claims.
    Existing data (1993) indicate that subsets of the population may be unusually susceptible to the toxic effects of fluoride and its compounds. These populations include the elderly, people with deficiencies of calcium, magnesium, and/or vitamin C, and people with cardiovascular and kidney problems. ... Because fluoride is excreted through the kidney, people with renal insufficiency would have impaired renal clearance of fluoride ... Impaired renal clearance of fluoride has also been found in people with diabetes mellitus (Emphases added). Toxicological Profile for Fluorides, Hydrogen Fluoride, and Fluorine (F), (April 1993), U.S. Dept. Health and Human Services, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, p.112
