Candy is everywhere—it arrives on holidays, lurks in vending machines, and shows up on desks and coffee tables. Candy is very tempting, but the downside is the sugar crash (making you tired, weary, and fatigued) along with weight gain. Plus sugar feeds inflammation—which is bad news if you suffer from aching joints. And one other thing—most candy bars are free-radicals-in-bar. So you’re just gobbling up the little enemies that are aging your entire system from the inside out. That’s why they make candy taste so good … if they didn’t, no one would eat the stuff.
