Answer: Fats and Sugars are Food Groups. A nutrient is, by definition, a source of nourishment. Therefore your question needs refining.
Both sugars and fats contain a carbon, oxygen and hydrogen in an "organic" structure. Breaking them down releases energy. The energy is what holds the elements in their structure. Different sugars and fats release a different amount of energy. The energy is used to heat us and enable muscles to work etc. The breakdown of these carbo-hydrates ends up as carbon dioxide and water which are released through the respiratory system and urinary system.
Sugars are easier for the bodies digestive process to break down so provide the quick fix or sugar boost.
Fats are more complicated and the body often stores them for those times when there is a need for energy but the readily available sugars are not present in quantity. Hence the layer of fat which builds up under our skin.
Answer: All carbohydrates, whether sugars or starches, are digested in the intestine to form glucose, which is transported around the body via the blood and taken into cells to be converted into energy. The hormone insulin, secreted by the pancreas gland within the abdomen, controls this action of cell glucose uptake. Excess glucose is converted into glycogen, which is stored in the liver or in fat around the body. If the body needs more energy, a second hormone, glucagon, is secreted by the pancreas which converts the glycogen back into glucose. It is then released back into the bloodstream so that with the help of the insulin, the cells can take up the glucose to release the energy they need.The glucose or sugar metabolism of the body is a cycle of glucose, insulin and glucagon reactions. The slower the release of glucose and hormones, the more stable and sustainable the energy levels of the body. It is generally accepted that the more refined the carbohydrate, the faster the glucose will be released into the blood, resulting in less stable energy levels in the body. Complex carbohydrates provide a slower and more sustained release of energy than the simple carbohydrates.
Answer: DNA is the result of the y and x chromosome combining in the womb. DNA can be taken from anywhere to determine the 3 trillion letters that make up who you are. So unless the part of the body that the DNA sample is taken from produces sugars, then no, DNA does not contain sugar.
Answer: There are healthy sweeteners, like honey and stevia. There are alsonatural sugars in fruits. Table sugar, which is refined, and highfructose corn syrup (HFCS) are unhealthy. Artificial sweeteners arealso unhealthy.
