A insightful way to look at sugar by Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology. He explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.
“Based on the research I’ve read, I believe that dramatically decreasing the intake of sugar, soy, dairy, wheat, and processed corn reduces inflammation and the likelihood of diseases. Dr. Lustig certainly makes a strong case for decreasing sugar,” states Dr. Cohen of San Francisco.
The New York Times has an in-depth article on this as well.
