My sudden increase of per-gout symptoms correlated with a step-up in my fruit intake early on the Sparky program. Since you and Woubbie made me wise, my gout is sub-noticeable. So yes, it's no lie. Add most fruit (citrus, particularly) to the Molly Hatchett foods list. Why Molly Hatchet? Why, "Flirting with Disaster" of course!

Good article. I am still waiting for the circle to be completed. I have read that gout, and diabetes are related, and with sugar being a maor cause of diabetes, they just need to say that sugar may be a cause of gout.

No matter what, the article is a good read, and I agree a lot with the ideas of Robert Lustig.

An article closer to my ideas is this one: they seem to be okay with saying soda is bad, but not sugar
