Packet of sugar...

I weighed a packet of sugar last week: 1.6 grams, without the packaging.

In a 20 ounce bottle of Coke which exhibits 2.5 servings, there are 27 grams of sugar per serving.

White sugar is an industrially processed chemical not found in nature, and it is not fit for human consumption. Other sugars, such as fructose (in fruit and honey), lactose (in milk), and maltose (in grains) are natural substances with nutritional value. Raw sugar is a coarse, brown, sticky variety made by simply boiling down whole cane juice and it too is a wholesome food, but it is very difficult to find in North America. The so called "brown sugar" sold in supermarkets is nothing more than refined white sugar with some molasses spun back into it for colour and flavour.

In this state sugar is onsidered sucrose, the white crystalline sugare refined from cane or beet juice by stripping away all it vitamins, minerals, protein, fibre, water, and other synergists.

Most people consume far more sugar than their bodies can possibly use for energy. When this happens, the livers converts the extra sugar into molecules called triglycerides and stores it as fat, or else produces cholesterol from the by-products of sugar and deposits it in veins and arteries.

Sugar suppresses the immune system by causing the pancreas to secrete abnormally large quantities of insulin, which is required to break it down. Insulin remains in cirulation in the blood stream long after sugar is metabolized, and one of its main side effects is to suppress the release of growth hormone in the pituary gland.

Growth hormone is a primary regulator of the immune system, so anyone who eats a lot of sugar each dayis going to experience a critical growth hormone deficiency and consequent immune deficiency caused by the constant presence of insulin in the bloodstream.

FYI.

my decision to not drink soda over the last few years makes even more scence

Does Honey have the same problems as raw sugar?

Honey is a natural substance (fructose) with nutrional value.
Sugar is a denatured chemical void of any nutrients.

They don't use regular sugar in soda, they use high fructose corn syrup. Its cheaper than real sugar and does not crystalize like sugar would.

what's the deal with Sugar Alcohol? Like reduced sugar PowerBars show only 1g of sugar, but 26g Sugar Alcohol. Doesn't sound good to me

The sugar alcohols are still sugar, but they don't react like a sugar in the body.

So that's why I'm short.. To much sugar not enough growth hormone. It's all clear now.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

Substitute those cans of soda into glasses of milk and you'll gain weight, np!
That's basically what I do when im trying to gain some mass and get stronger.
