Reason 1: Consuming too much added sugar increases heart disease risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure and inflammation. High-sugar diets have been linked to an increased risk of dying from heart disease.
Reason 2: Sugar is bad for you a because it has calories, and because if you have diabetes or a diabetes-related condition — let’s say high blood fat levels — then having sugar will increase your blood sugar and your triglycerides, which is a risk factor for heart disease. … Sugar is very calorie dense.
Reason 3: Drugs such as cocaine, amphetamines and nicotine hijack this brain system. Activation of this system leads to intense feelings of reward that can result in cravings and addiction. So drugs and sugar both activate the same reward system in the brain, causing the release of dopamine.
