Sugar is indeed toxic. It may not be the only problem with the Standard American Diet, but itís fast becoming clear that itís the major one.
A study published in the Feb. 27 issue of the journal PLoS One links increased consumption of sugar with increased rates of diabetes by examining the data on sugar availability and the rate of diabetes in 175 countries over the past decade. And after accounting for many other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar in a populationís food supply was linked to higher diabetes rates independent of rates of obesity.
In other words, according to this study, obesity doesnít cause diabetes: sugar does.
The study demonstrates this with the same level of confidence that linked cigarettes and lung cancer in the 1960s. As Rob Lustig, one of the studyís authors and a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, San Francisco, said to me, ďYou could not enact a real-world study that would be more conclusive than this one.Ē opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/27/i
