Outcome of sugar reduction strategies for soft drinks

1. A high intake of sugar, in particular from sugar-sweetened soft drinks, increases the risk for #obesity , type 2 #diabetes mellitus, and dental #caries.
#MedTwitter #nutrition #sugar
2. Between 2015 & 2021, the mean sugar content of soft drinks sold in Germany decreased by only 2% from 5.3 to 5.2 g/100 mL, falling short of 9% reduction target. The onus of reducing sugar content was left to the manufacturers of soft drinks.
3. In comparison, in the same period in the UK, the sugar content fell from 5.3 g per 100 mL to 3.8 g per 100 mL (29% reduction).
In 2018, the UK introduced an industry levy on soft drinks to encourage the manufacturers to reduce sugar. This approach has proven highly effective.

#sugar #Healthlessons for the world.

As found out by Ayurveda.
Please note this is a very important wisdom from the Hindus. Please provide attribution to great Hindu sages, Charaka, Sushruta and MadanaPala and so on.
This thread will discuss how to use Sugar and then also explains why this usage is correct as per biochemistry.
Sugar was invented by Hindus. Hindus understood inflammatory processes aided by the sugar and called it Kapha producing. The Kapha adds to corpulence.

Last week, Julia Belluz (@juliaoftoronto) published an article not on what #obesity is, but what it isn't: a personal failing. In it, she argues that obesity is not one thing, it's many. That's right. It's not OBESITY. It's OBESITIES.…
This week, my colleague Ilene Fennoy and I published a paper delineating the history of all of these obesities. Nonetheless, people still argue whether obesity is a problem of energy storage (#insulin) or a problem of energy balance (#calories).…
Because both are true. One set of causes (insulin, cortisol, genetics, obesogens) are a problem of energy storage. Another set of causes (nutrition, sedentariness, addiction, epigenetics, microbiome) are a problem of energy balance.

There is no evidence that sugar directly causes any negative health effects.

Is this true?

A 🧵
#sugar #health #metabolism
Latest UK guidelines suggest there is only sufficient evidence that diets high in sugars:

1) cause increased calorie intake
2) are associated with tooth decay

So if calorie intake is not maintained, there are no harmful effects of sugars?

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, but we also should be careful about believing anything with weak or little evidence.

So what does the evidence show?

I am listening to #Starky, the #historian, who is trying his level best to defend slavery and #English #Buccaneer #William #Beckford.
William owned some 40,000 acres of #sugar plantation growing land and had thousands of enslaved #workers working on his property in #Jamaica.
No wonder the bad memories survived.
During the 1970s Manley introduced Democratic Socialism in Jamaica which was a reactionary political movement against the injustices committed by the colonialists against the Jamaican People.
Economic historians confuse that with capitalism.
Free Enterprise & Free Market Economy, with Free movement of factors of production across markets, the freedom of choice exercised in terms of either consumption or occupation, and other matters pertinent to production, prices, and distribution are value-fact dichotomy hypotheses

1) Pregnancy is a significant sociocultural event in human society.

It marks the sacred connection between one generation and its offspring.

This is what most people think.

Let me tell you why its not --> through the lens of evolutionary medicine.
2) Pregnancy is actually a vicious battle between two partially related genetic entities --> the mother and its fetus.

Neither side shows mercy or takes prisoners.

We will focus on the battle for fuel at the fetomaternal interface in this Tweetorial.
3) First of all --> the physiology.

The pregnant female usually experiences reset homeostasis --> with fasting blood sugar (FBS) gradually falling till the week 12 --> then it stabilizes till term.

But PPBS shows sharper, more sustained rise, along with rising insulin levels!

#OTD in 1861, Hawaiian King Kamehameha IV declared neutrality after the outbreak of the Civil War. Allying with the United States would have provoked Confederate raids while recognizing the Confederacy would have seriously damaged international relations with the U.S.
King Kamehameha IV died on November 30, 1863, and was succeeded by Kamehameha V Lot Kapuāiwa. He wanted to keep favorable trade deals with the United States and worked diplomatically with the Lincoln administration to negotiate a new treaty of neutrality.
The Hawaiian public skewed toward the United States. Hawaii already abolished slavery in the Constitution of 1852. Many Hawaiian-born Americans (most of whom were the sons of American missionaries) supported the United States over the Confederacy.

One of the most common questions patients ask me👇
Pharm, can I take my Medications with SOFT DRINKS ?

#ANSWER : It's NOT advisable to take your medications with Soft drinks UNLESS recommended by your Pharmacist.

( 1.) Soft drinks are Carbonated water (carbonic #ACID + water).

- The ACID can render the drug "in or Less active" leading to sub-optimal clinical outcome.

- Soft drinks doesn't REALLY cause Ulcer but for can cause some ERODING effects on Ulcer patients & those with history
of Ulcer due to the Phosphoric acid & Carbonic acids present.

The ACID can also worsen the symptoms of Ulcer (such as bloating, stomach fullness, stomach irritation).

Taking Such Drinks with AntiUlcer medications can make such drugs abit less effective.

PM Modi on 5th June, World Environment Day, announced that India has achieved 10% ethanol blending of petrol, five months ahead of schedule.

This is 4 times than in 2014, when it was just 2%.

But what is #Ethanol and why are mixing it with #Fuel?

Ethanol or Ethyl Alcohol is a biofuel, it can be produced from biomass such as sugarcane, corn, etc. which have high starch content.

In India, ethanol is mainly produced from sugarcane through fermentation.

Sugar addiction is worse than addiction to cocaine and heroin. For a healthier lifestyle, ditch that sugar!

Refined sugar is everywhere, literally. Sweetening cookies, energy drinks, yogurt, ketchup and even our bread. #Insulinresistance #Sugaraddiction
The World Health Organization and American Heart Association recommends a daily intake of 24-50 grams daily, equaling between 6-12 teaspoons.

Normally consumed food gets broken down in to glucose and enters the bloodstream.
The pancreas then secretes insulin to transport the glucose to muscles, fat and liver cells for energy use. When sugar is constantly in excess, the cells do not effectively take it in, leading the pancreas to make more insulin to overcome the increasing blood glucose levels.
