0184 – Deception

Do you know how sweeteners work?

Long story short,
Sweeteners are enantiomers of sugar, which mean that the compounds are mirror images of the sugar involved. So basically they supposedly have the same function as sugar does, but the body doesn’t recognize this as sugar because our body is chiral, which means it sees the mirror image of a sugar as different than sugar.

Short story even shorter,
Sweeteners deceive our bodies into thinking that they’re not sugar.


Isn’t it a common thing now? Apart from sweeteners deceiving our bodies, we deceive each other too. We look after ourselves first. That tends to be the common thing nowadays. My utopia is so far from reality.

Anyway, I’m living my life in college – without partying or drinking. I’m really happy about that. I guess I worried too much after all. I have awesome friends. I have a good education. I have a life. I just wish I have more time to blog and introspect. I like to think a lot, and I like to fix things. That has its upside, and we shouldn’t talk about its downside.

I’m just grateful for who I am, and I am grateful for all the divine interventions that have gotten me thus far.

    I have awesome friends
    I have a good education
    I have a life
    Yay!!! That’s all you need. The rest takes care of itself. I’m happy for you. I’m thinking back how apprehensive you were. Don’t credit divine intervention. Credit yourself.
    PS medicine deceives the body too. Good for some deception.

    ehh, so does the body still absorb the ‘fake’ sugars?

    • existentiallife November 29, 2009 / 11:40 pm

      No, it doesn’t recognize the thing as sugars, so it gets passed out of the body. Theoretically. Though I think there’re researches that indicate that these things are dangerous for the body. idk. i wanna talk!
