The frightening story of fructose and sugar in the american diet must be told. People need to know the truth about what they are eating. In this video, which discusses the science that proves sugar is killing us and explains how consumers became so misinformed over the past half century. Watch carefully and learn exactly why obesity is becoming an epidemic.
Over 50 years of health and government policies that have guided our dietary choices were based on an incomplete, mishandled scientific study. Today we are all paying the price for cheaper, faster foods that are actually poisoning us. We are even more unhealthy than ever before, so what is going on?
Simple Science Proves that Sugar is Killing Us
It’s a talk given by Dr. Robert H. Lustig, MD, a UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology called “Sugar: The Bitter Truth.” The reasons I love this talk? First: the man’s a doctor at a prestigious university teaching and doing research in the field of endocrinology. If anyone is qualified to speak authoritatively on this subject, it would be him. So, if your friends or your family don’t want to hear it from you, other bloggers, science journalists like Gary Taubes, or those in the alternative medicine community, perhaps they’ll actually listen to him. Second: He tackles not just heart disease, but diabetes, obesity, and high-blood pressure. In other words, he shows the connection between dietary intake of sugar (specifically acute fructose) and the root causes of these diseases of industrialization.
