This piece of research dates back to 1973, but the results are no less relevant to your immune system today.
The study showed that the ability of your immune system to deal with bacteria was significantly decreased for up to five hours after eating sugar. The sugar didn’t decrease the number of immune cells, but it decreased the effectiveness of those cells.
Dr. Kendra talks about this study is her latest video here.
If you need more proof that reducing sugar intake is important for your health, listen to Dr. Mark Hyman interviewed by John Robbins on Food Revolution Network, or watch the documentary FED UP. And if you need help making a change, your local naturopathic doctor is never far off!
