For four decades, we’ve been led to believe that fat is the ultimate food enemy, but we’ve been fed a lie: the real danger is sweet, addictive – and found in almost everything we eat.
Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods and one of the most vocal of the anti-sugar campaigners. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin. Dr. Lustig specifically targets fructose, a fruit sugar that makes up 50% of the refined sugar found in virtually everything you buy pre-made.
Public health bodies are starting to listen. The World Health Organization (WHO) now says that sugar restrictions must be considered in order to stem the global ‘tidal wave’ of cancer. WHO is thought to be on the brink of revising its guidelines on manufacturer-added sugar (including the sugar from honey, syrups and fruit juices), down from 10% to 5% of our daily calorie intake.
