Since the dawn of the age of Homo sapiens on our planet earth, humanity has evolved to such a huge extent in this 21st century that even our leaders or forefathers wouldn’t have been able to think of. This is the remarkable example of an exponential growth trajectory in the progressive journey of mankind evolution.
Even though we have accomplished huge technological advancements in almost every aspect of human life still health of the million lives remain compromised. Health has been one of the most primary concerns of humanity for survival since the evolutionary stages of mankind.
As mankind goes on developing further, it is continuously losing its touch with nature at the cost of a more and more comfortable life. Mankind is not only losing the touch with nature but also consciously or unconsciously harming themselves and Mother Nature.

As technological advancements are creating more and more comfortable life, people keep on losing touch of the active lifestyle and nutritional awareness. The major industries especially the food industry is making huge benefits out of this scenario with the advent of artificial sugar.
Basically, the food industry works on 3 basic rules:
1. Manipulation of consumer behaviour for benefits.
Okay, you might not believe this first of all but think of the commercial advertisements of the major food companies, how smartly they lure the common man to buy their products although you know already that they are just not good for your health. But they make you lose your willpower to compromise with your health.
2. Sugar leads to more sugar cravings.
Almost every readymade food product is infused with harmful chemical preservatives for the longer shelf lives and the sugar hidden in plain sight in the form of many artificial sweeteners to develop more cravings among consumer for more sales. The food industry is working on its best to create sugar addiction among consumers.
3. Capitalism Profit
The food industry may go to any extent to make the product cheaper for more sales and profit while maintaining its artificial taste and attractiveness.
Okay, you still might not believe the fact. Next time you buy any readymade food product from your local market. Have a look at the ingredients and just think of how much really it would cost to manufacture such an artificially tasty and attractive food product and that too in bulk production.
Almost every second person we know about in our life is encountered by the unfulfilling temptations of the sweets & sugary flavoured items during festive seasons, especially in winters.

Although no one can completely ban sugar from their life as it has become an active ingredient in our eating habits. So one of the most concerned questions in life nowadays is how to avoid or at least consciously minimize the artificial sugar from our daily life.
