Are You Addicted To Sugar

Posted on 11/21/2022 by Neil Starr DDS PC
Are You Addicted To SugarThe intake of enormous quantities of foods or beverages high in sugar is one of the most obvious indicators of sugar addiction. The person can eat continually to stave off boredom, get hyperactive, and then collapse. They could even remark about longing for sweets following a frustrating or unpleasant event in their lives. 
Due to this, we might begin to feel as if we are dependent on sugary foods and beverages, and some individuals even have the impression that they have acquired an addiction to sugar. Although we may have developed habits that are difficult to break, there is little evidence suggesting that sugar can be addictive, similar to nicotine, liquor, and other opiates. 

Excessive Consumption Of Sugar Is Harmful To Your Teeth

Sugar and tooth decay are linked in a way that can be explained by a causal chain. Following the consumption of meals containing sugar, these molecules combine with the saliva and bacteria that are already present in the mouth. Plaque is the result of this mixture when it forms on teeth. If it is allowed to remain on the teeth, plaque may erode the enamel, resulting in fractures.
