Surely you already have everything planned to celebrate Halloween this October 31: you chose your costume, decorated your house with pumpkins, skeletons and cobwebs, and if you have children, you have already planned the route you will take for the trick-or-treat. But have you thought about how much sweet you are going to eat that night? Although it may be that we find some other healthy option, wherever we go that day, there will be sweets and chocolates everywhere and it is difficult to resist the temptation to join the celebration consuming tons of sugar. That's why it's important for you to set a limit and be aware of how harmful a sugar overdose can be.

Doctors Michael Roizen, director of wellness for the Cleveland Clinic and co-founder and president of the RealAge Scientific Advisory Board; and Mehmet Oz, professor and vice president of surgery at Columbia University and director of the Heart Institute at the New York Presbyterian / Columbia Medical Center, explain three consequences of consuming excess sugar:

It can clog our arteries: When we eat more sugar than we can process, the proteins in our body are affected and the liver ends up turning excess sugar into fat and pouring it into the bloodstream, causing our arteries to become clogged

It increases the risk of getting cancer: There is increasing evidence that large amounts of sugar are toxic to certain cells and damage them in a way that can lead to cancer. People who eat a diet high in sugars are 70% more likely to get pancreatic cancer than those who avoid eating it

Accelerates aging: Collagen is responsible for keeping our skin smooth and elastic, but when collagen proteins get together with sugar, they cannot do their job and our skin looks more aged and wrinkled

Another thing to consider is the recently released data from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regarding licorice candy (black liquorice). This type of candy is very popular on Halloween, but it happens that it has the glycyrrhizin compound, which can lower the body's potassium levels. When this happens, some people experience abnormal heart rhythms, as well as high blood pressure, edema, lethargy, and congestive heart failure.

Have fun this Halloween, but keep the candy at bay!
