The immune suppression was most noticeable two hours post-ingestion, but the effect was still evident five hours after ingestion. This research has practical implications, especially for teens and college students who tend to overdose on sodas containing caffeine and sugar while studying for exams or during periods of stress.  Stress also suppresses immunity, so these suga-users are setting themselves up to get sick at a time when they need to be well.

  • Refined and added sugars
  • Industrial plant oil
  • Bleach refined flour
  • Any artificial ingredients
