Why the sugar bad for your health?

Sugar per se is not bad for health. A healthy person will be able to take care of all the sugar he or she eats. All food that we eat is converted to sugar in body. Body uses this sugar for its energy needs and extra sugar is converted in fat and stored in adipose tissue for a rainy day. Thus when you consume more calaories than you utilize for your activities or exercise you will gain weight. It does not matter if calories have come from sugar or not. A person with diabetes finds it difficult to tackle the sugar intake as fast as a normal person will do and hence blood sugar levels of a diabetic person will remain high for a much longer time than blood levels of a normal person.
