Suger High

There is only one drug that everyone does. That drug is sugar. It's not like heroin or anything, but the danger with sugar is that it works in the same way, just on a much smaller scale. What happens when we eat sugar is that the brain releases all these substances that stimulates the nerves in such a way that you feel good. That's is of course not a bad thing. What is, is that since we eat such incredible amounts of sugar these days, it's in bread, pasta, in most about everything essentially, it fucks up the brain in a very small, but crucial way. When we eat sugar, the brain releases opioids. Opioids is the same thing that the brain releases when we use heroin or morphine, though of course in a much larger scale. The problem with sugar is that we can eat it all the time, and therefore keep the amount of opioids constant, we get addicted to the brains own chemicals essentially. However, this has yet to be proved to be the case on humans. Tests on rats has confirmed that they develop an addiction to sugar, and suffer from withdrawal when denied it. It is however quite likely that this is also the case with humans, since there is not that great of a difference in the brains between mammals. Though, there is of course a difference between our sugar and natural sugar. Our sugar is purified several times, treated with different chemicals, and heated amongst other things. These processes are mainly to make the sugar look good. However, they also remove all the good things with the sugar. It is however true that sugar is important for the brain. Natural sugar, that is. The natural sugar contains vitamins and minerals, amongst other things, which makes it quite healthy for us. Natural sugar is also built in a different way than processed sugar. This is important because our brains use sugar as its only fuel. However, too much is not good for it, since that actually prevents it from receiving the much needed sugar. Natural sugar is constructed in such a way that it is not directly absorbed by the body, the process takes a while, and maintains the level of sugar in the blood fairly even. Our artificial sugar, we might as well call it that, since that's essentially what it is, is absorbed almost instantly, almost as if injected into the blood. This of course causes the sugar level in the blood to peak, the body releases insulin to store this extra sugar, but the insulin levels take much longer to drop than the sugar does. The liver can't absorb all that extra insulin very fast, and don't normally need to either. The only natural source we have for that much sugar is honey, which naturally is very hard to come by. The simple fact is that our bodies does not evolve as fast as either our society, science, and brains does. And with these kinds of sugar levels, our brains won't get much further anyway. So, what should we avoid then? Mainly candy and soda, it's that easy. Eat breakfast, a real one, not waffles or anything like that.
