UCSF Pediatric Endocrinologist on Fructose

April 29, 2010

Sure, sure, pretty much everybody agrees that “too much sugar is bad for you”.  What if we believed that sugar (more specifically fructose), was poison to the human body, and one of the chief culprits in the tidal wave of metabolic syndrome and obesity in this country?  This doc from UCSF takes us down that particular rabbit hole.  Yes, it’s long, and at times heavy on the biochemistry, but compelling nonetheless with regard to this particular subject.

Careful, you may never look at that soda/honey/sugar/donut/fruit (!?)/”sports rehydration drink”/ice cream the same.

Here is another link to the UCSF story, with associated links at the bottom of the page.
