The deviousness of corporate greed knows no end. Check out what the sugar industry has been up to, leading us all down the garden path with our health. As always follow the money. Sugar is evil at best in my opinion. It has been traced to many a health problem particularly cancer. Educate yourself and protect your immune system naturally. I should mention, don’t rely on mainstream media to give you the data on independent research. Go to the research of those who had nothing to gain from their results in terms of money. There you will be more likely to find truth. EnvirowatchRangitikei
According to newly uncovered documents, in the 1960s the sugar industry began funding research to cast doubt on sugar’s role in heart disease, mainly by pointing the finger at fat instead.
A recently published analysis based on correspondence between a sugar trade group and researchers from Harvard University clearly demonstrates how food and beverage makers actively shape the public’s understanding of nutrition for their own financial gain.
In 1964 a group known as The Sugar Association went over a campaign to address any “negative attitudes toward sugar” after studies linking sugar with heart disease began to emerge, according to documents that were dug up from the now public archives. The following year the group approved a project called “Project 226,” which involved paying researchers from Harvard the equivalent of todays $48,900 USD for an article reviewing scientific literature, supplying the materials they wanted reviewed and reviewing drafts of the article prior to publication.
The result was an article, published in 1967, which concluded there was “no doubt” that reducing cholesterol and saturated fat was the only dietary guideline necessary to prevent heart disease effectively. The consistency of the literature on fat and cholesterol were overstated by researchers, and studies on sugar were severely downplayed, according to the analysis.
