The intelligence in life has grown food on earth for humans and animals to eat, which both do. Sugar cane in particular as food is meant for animals such as the gorillas, rhinoceros and elephants, which require plenty of glucose for energy and also to convert glucose into proteins and fats.
The onset of the industrial revolution paved the way for processing food that humans eat. Sugar cane plantations underwent this processing technique to produce sugar from sugar cane plants.
The industrial revolution extracted sugar cane juice used by the alcohol industry to produce alcohol. Just as the left-over from refining diesel was used as mineral oils as cooking oils, the left-over from refining alcohol was used to form white sugar.
The flavouring industry permeated food to sell flavoured mineral oils as the real cooking oils, while they were not the real cooking oils. Similarly, the sugar industry permeated every aspect of food that humans eat, either solid or liquid.
Sugar is added to solid foods such as biscuits, breakfast cereals, tinned food, chocolate bars, any form of eatable bars, potato crisps, any form of eatable crisps etc.
Sugar is added to liquid foods, such as energy drinks, soft drinks like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, tea, coffee, every form of sauce, including tomato ketchup. Sugar is also added to toothpaste that humans use for cleaning their teeth.
Sugar is transformed into glucose very easily and quickly in the human body to produce energy. The human body, however, transforms carbohydrate as glucose slowly after a series of biochemical steps to produce energy.
The human body can handle only a slow release of glucose to convert it as energy. The human body cannot handle quick deposition of sugar as energy. The body accumulates sugar as glycogen in the body. This leads eventually to ill-health.
Some human beings are addicted to alcohol which is harmful for the body, but not a child. The irony of human beings is that every modern man, woman and child is addicted to sugar, which eventually leads to ill-health.
Therefore, sugar is a slow, addictive, white poison to the human body.

German Translator’s Note:
The addiction to sugar is one of the biggest problems for health in so called developed countries. It takes some time for the gustative nerv to recover from the addiction to sugar. Many modern humans are not able to taste a meal without sugar and to appreciate it. The statements of the wise in this article by Dr. Shankar are definitively a gift for humanity. Wisdom is not only concerned about the mind but also about the body. Body and mind are inseparable entities, because life is one singular movement and not two.
