NY Times Article: How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat


Recommended Posts

This may not be  news to anyone, but it is to me since I'm new to Whole30 and have an entirely new perspective on Sugar.

A trade group called the Sugar Research Foundation, known today as the Sugar Association, paid three Harvard scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 in today’s dollars to publish a 1967 review of research on sugar, fat and heart disease. The studies used in the review were handpicked by the sugar group, and the article, which was published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, minimized the link between sugar and heart health and cast aspersions on the role of saturated fat.
