A recent report about an alleged sugar industry cover-up shocked The Doctors and we’re speaking Dr. Cristin Kearns, who exposed the alleged false information from the 1960s.
Dr. Kearns investigated how during the 1960s and 1970s, the sugar industry allegedly used its influence to shift attention away from sugar and direct it towards fat as the cause for many health issues. The industry allegedly paid Harvard scientists to publish information benefiting their interests in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1965 that promoted a low-fat diet. These low-fat diets were often filled with sugary products, thus increasing people’s sugar consumption. The recent findings now illustrate how years of too much sugar has contributed to a slew of health issues for Americans.
But how much sugar is too much sugar? The Doctors sound off on the sweet debate.
“I always say sugar itself is not evil, but in too great of quantities it’s toxic. In many ways, you could consider it just as bad a cigarette smoking and to think of all the carnage we’ve seen in this country over the last few decades, the rates of obesity and chronic illness, the rates of diabetes and to think that this may be because researchers were paid off by industry… this is one of the more troubling things I’ve heard as a doctor,” ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says.
But will there be any fallout from Dr. Kearns’ findings? She tells The Doctors that the people involved in the alleged cover-up are no longer alive, but she expects more information to be uncovered and she expects there to be a lot more to this story in the coming months and years.
The Doctors remind the audience to keep these findings in mind when you see those “fat-free” labels.
