Well, look at this. The sugar lobby paid scientists to blur sugar’s role in heart disease. This is no big surprise; I’ve been talking about this on PaleoMarine.com since I started this blog. What concerns me the most is how this news isn’t in the US media. Why aren’t we telling people that our nutritional ideas are based on poor or even false science? Could it be that the money behind our media is the same money behind these studies?
No, I don’t wear a tin foil hat, nor do I see a conspiracy around every corner. However, the “low-fat is good for your heart” and “whole grains are good for you” arguments are not holding up in any real scientific testing. I’ve even read a blog that says we need to eat grains because Jesus shared bread at the Last Supper.
We need to stick to real science when it comes to nutrition and keep the food lobbies out of science. We also need to reevaluate the studies done in the past to better gauge their veracity.
There’s no real revelation in the article I posted. It echoes the previous links I’ve posted about the evils of sugar and how the sugar lobby paid for the studies to ignore how bad sugar is for us.
I’m hoping because you’re here reading this that you will read not only the link I posted here, but some of the other links about the evils of sugar. If you are going to change just one thing about your diet this year, make it eliminating processed and added sugars in your foods. You will be shocked at how much better you feel, how your health will improve, and yes, how much weight you will lose. It’s that big of a deal.
