The average American consumes over 125 grams of sucrose (table sugar) and another 50 grams of refined simple sugars each day. This is significant because it only takes 100 grams of a simple carbohydrate (in the form of glucose, fructose, sucrose, honey, or juice) to drastically reduce the activity of white blood cells (WBCs). White blood cells are the centerpiece to the body’s defense mechanism and in just 30 minutes after consumption of 100 grams of simple carbohydrate there is a 50% reduction in the ability of the WBCs to engulf and destroy foreign particles and microorganisms … and this lasts for over 5 hours!
