“It is estimated that about 30% of Americans are sugar sensitive which can lead to having a sugar addiction,” says Samantha Taylor of SugarAddictionSpecialist.com “Most people who struggle with a sugar addiction have for over 10 years, they have tried to stop eating sugar but they just haven’t been able to break the sugar cravings. I started this blog to have a candid conversation about a real problem.”
A study noting the negative effects consuming mass quantities of sugar has on the brain, which was conducted at UCLA, was recently published in the Journal of Physiology. “Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think," said professor of neurosurgery Fernando Gomez-Pinilla in the article. The many links between sugar and disease, as well as sugar’s impact on the brain’s function, are overwhelming. SugarAddictionSpecialist.com’s blog will blend scientific information with personal experiences. Samantha Taylor is hopeful her readers will have a deeper understanding of how very real the addiction to sugar is.
