I was just browsing the 60 Minutes on the TV and it says they will have a Doctor speaking about sugar and how it is toxic. Figured I would share the info.

Um carbs convert into sugar post-digestion, so hating on the sugar isn't exactly wrong, though they should have pointed out that "healthy" whole grains are nothing more than sugar with extra toxins.

I didn't see it but I'd agree that the demonization of sugar has gone bonkers. Yeah it's not the boatload of calories in the all the McDonald's (from fat and carbohydrate), it's the sugar. What?!

Worst report ever. This sugar hate has really gone overboard.

This doesn't seem to be a question, and PH can be fascistic about this. I predict this post will be closed.

The doctor in question is probably Robert Lustig, whose "Sugar: The Bitter Truth" video is on YouTube.

Something I would like to watch. I hope they speak about healthy all natural alternative sugars and also tell the public how some sweeteners are filled with chemicals that are harmful to our health.
