The Toxic Truth About Sugar

I have blogged about Robert Lustig, MD and his research in the past and here is a new article published in the February issue of Nature about the "Toxic Truth of Sugar" and Time Magazine arguing that it could be as disruptive over time as alcohol consumption.

"As long as the public thinks that sugar is just ‘empty calories,’ we have no chance in solving this,”

“There are good calories and bad calories, just as there are good fats and bad fats, good amino acids and bad amino acids, good carbohydrates and bad carbohydrates,” Lustig said. “But sugar is toxic beyond its calories.”  Robert Lustig, MD
