Going Vegetarian or Vegan might seem fashionable but is it healthy? Many so called vegetarians or Vegans have stomach or digestive problems. Sugar is from a vegetable source (Sugar cane).
The following is from my experience.
Most creatures that hunt have their eyes to the front; Creatures that graze (eating mainly vegetable matter) and are hunted have their eye’s forward and to the side. Thus if you look at us humans (eyes in the front) we are omnivorous as our tooth structure clearly shows. We are designed to eat a diet of Meat, fish and vegetables to stay healthy.
As with regards to sugar...
In my own case or personal experience. For the last 20 years I have suffered from reflux or upset stomach. Many doctors have prescribed reflux medication, some helped but nothing fixed the problem. So after cleaning a drain with Bi Carb (Baking Soda) I thought I would try it on myself. I took half a small teaspoon of bi carb in about an inch of water in a glass. This instantly fixed the reflux. (Great) and lasted for a week.
Note: If you suffer chest pains, as the above take half a small teaspoon of bi carb in about an inch of water in a glass. If you only have Reflux or indigestion it will instantly neutralise the acid causing reflux and related pain. If however the pain persists after 5 minutes it could be angina or heart related.
However over the years the daily dosage needed to keep the reflux in check rose to 5 teaspoons of bi-carb each day. Finally in desperation I looked through the Internet. The cause of the reflux I had been having all those years was caused by sugar. 8 to 10 cups of coffee and tea each day with 2 spoons of sugar in each cup, also several glasses of soft drinks. That’s about 8000 yes eight thousand spoonfuls a year. So I simply cut out sugar and soft drinks (No artificial sweeteners or chocolate) Since that day I have never had reflux or needed to take anything to combat it.
I also had a problem over many years with painful mouth ulcers. Constantly reoccurring. I cut out using tomato sauce and this problem also went away (could be the high levels of sugar and acids).
Everyone who eats sugar suffers from an upset stomach in varying degrees. It does not worry some people. The human body makes a natural antacid to balance this. However it uses the calcium in your body to produce this natural antacid. So if you consume large amounts of sugars in your diet you could have to take calcium supplements.
