Sugar In Cigarettes, the best kept secret…

We all know that Sugar is the most addictive natural product in the world, and we all know how bad it is for us,But did you know that the average cigarette contains half a teaspoon of white processed sugar ??

If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day, you are taking in 10 teaspoons of sugar each and every day !

Each time you smoke, you get an energy hit and so the addiction takes hold. Without you being aware of it, when you reach for a cigarette you’re responding to the sugar-craving, setting off a rollercoaster of sugar highs and lows.
You often hear that people try to quit smoking and find they put on weight. This is the body’s reaction to losing that hit of sugar – leading you to crave sugary treats to feed your underlying addiction.

One of the most concerning findings is link between cancer and added sugar in cigarettes;

“The sugar in cigarettes is the main source of lung cancer, based on experimental studies. Comparing lung cancer rates where sugar was added and where it wasn’t.”

Toxicology studies have shown that boosting sugar levels, whether by adding white sugar or artificial sweeteners, makes the smoke more poisonous.
