Glucose↓&Adrenaline?: Very unhealthy choices unless you like Diabetes Mellitus, obesity, accelerating cardiovascular disease, cancer, etc. While most humans have a sweet tooth & cheap-to-industrially-extract sugars are widely added to ↑sales of processed/cheaper-to-produce stuff sold as food, the vehicles we are driving are designed to run on very low sugar, moderate protein & natural high-saturated-fats fuels.
