The difference it makes while the transition from field to factory-made food products has even made us consume sugar-laced food products with the remains of chemicals still on it. And the advent of soft drinks, fast food further deteriorated the situation, as it took the whole generations away from the natural juices, fibrous natural foods. These drinks are full of sugar and that too unnatural which, when consumed by humans, mixes in digestive juices of body and reaches our blood increasing the sugar levels.
