Has the Sugar Industry Been Lying to Us the Whole Time?

The excellent documentary, Sugar Coated, takes you through the sugar industry’s grand conspiracy over the last 60 years. What shocked me the most is how similar their strategies were to those of big tobacco. The big difference is that nowadays we know cigarettes are terrible for our health, but sugar still holds a warm place in our hearts. As the incidence of diabetes has risen to affect nearly 10% of the American population, including children, we need to reconsider how we feel about sugar and why we feel that way about it.
