Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Katrina Bridgemohan How does your substance specifically impact human health when under and over consumed? Facts In recent studies, it is found that consuming extensive amounts of sugar can lead to learning disabilities, depression, and even poor memory. It was proven by the U.S Department of Agriculture that an average American consumes 156lbs of sugar each year. It is said that people consume more sugar when eating processed foods and most people do not realize how much sugary foods they are eating. Metabolic Syndrome Our brains need sugar to function properly but we cannot have too much or too little. By consuming too much sugar it can lead to metabolic syndrome, which consists of a wide waist, low cholesterol, and high blood sugar. If you have this syndrome you are at a higher risk to get diabetes and heart disease. People get metabolic syndrome because the body cannot process nutrients such as sugars and fats. The main issue is that people are eating to much fat and sugary foods and exercising too little. Diabetes People who consume excessive amounts of sugar are at a higher risk of getting diabetes. The most common type of diabetes is mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a disorder of having excessive amounts of sugar in the blood. By having excessive amounts of sugar in the blood can lead to severe health issues. Diabetes mellitus is separated into three categories: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is found in children and young adults. Type 2 diabetes can occur at any age and is the most common form. Lastly, gestational diabetes can develop during late stages of pregnancy. Also, females who have gestational diabetes are more likely to get type 2 diabetes later on.
