365 Ways #30–Sugar and the immune system Posted on August 16, 2010, 0 Comments
#30–1 teaspoon of sugar can suppress the immune system for approximately 4-6hrs. The avg American consumes over 150lbs of sugar a year. It takes +/- 109 teaspoons to equal 1 pound of sugar. So 150 x 109 = 16350. That’s the amount of sugar in teaspoons Americans consume each year. 16350 x 4 to 6 = 65,400 to 98,100. That’s the number of hours the typical American’s immune system is inhibited. There are only 8760 hours in a year! So is it any wonder that each one of us spends $5600 year on medical expenses or that U.S. doctors wrote more than 4 BILLION prescriptions last year? We literally are the walking dead.
