Oy. Big sugar convinces nation that a low fat diet is healthier, to sell more sugar. All that cholesterol stuff you learned? Big sugar propaganda. No wonder people are overweight. Sugar.
“Together with other recent analyses of sugar industry documents, our findings suggest the industry sponsored a research program in the 1960s and 1970s that successfully cast doubt about the hazards of sucrose while promoting fat as the dietary culprit in CHD [Coronary Heart Disease]. Policymaking committees should consider giving less weight to food industry–funded studies and include mechanistic and animal studies as well as studies appraising the effect of added sugars on multiple CHD biomarkers and disease development.”
