Studies show that reducing or eliminating dietary sugars can lead to longer, healthier lives

Eliminating dietary sugars can reduce or minimize the chance of getting several dangerous diseases.

In 1900, the average lifespan for men in America was a mere 46 years. By 1950, men’s average lifespan was 65; a significant improvement. Today, a man’s average lifespan is 76 years - 30 years more than in 1900.

Of course, advances in medicine and diagnostics play a large role in getting males those extra years, but men have also begun taking better care of themselves. Men exercise more and are more conscious of their diet than they were several decades ago.

In 1994, Congress designated a week in June as Men’s Health Week. Since then, the entire month of June has been celebrated as Men’s Health Month, and SweetLeaf® is doing its part in seeing that the American male population lives longer and more healthful lives.

Eliminating dietary sugars can reduce or minimize the chance of getting several dangerous diseases. For example, there is ample evidence that excessive sugar contributes to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Additionally, excessive amounts of sugar are suspected to cause liver damage, kidney damage, pancreas damage, and brain shrinkage.

To keep men, and everyone for that matter, as healthy as possible, the American Heart Association has suggested a daily limit of 36 grams, or 9 teaspoons of sugar per day for men and 25 grams, or 6 teaspoons, for women and for children 2-18 years. (Children 2 years and younger should not consume any added sugars. Plus, according to the AHA, children under 5 years should avoid drinking flavored milks, toddler formulas, plant-based/non-dairy milk, caffeinated beverages, and sugar- and low-calorie sweetened beverages, which can be a big source of added sugars with no nutritional value.)

Living sugar free, however, doesn’t require abandoning the foods we love. Continuing to enjoy life’s sweetness is as simple as replacing sugar with plant-based SweetLeaf sweeteners. Plus, SweetLeaf has a non-glycemic response, so it doesn’t affect blood sugar levels.

It’s easy to accurately replace dietary sugars by using SweetLeaf’s downloadable Conversion Chart or interactive, online Conversion Calculator.
