Sugar High

Yours truly was a sugar junky. Still am but no longer does this rube pig out on sweets as this was and is the right thing to do. Said diet change started 5 months ago and the impact has been pretty amazing but this blurb is not about how "virtuous" this writer is but rather about yet another pay to play scheme, this time with Harvard and the sugar industry.

The sugar industry's funding and role were not disclosed when the article was published by the New England Journal of Medicine. The journal did not begin requesting author disclosures until 1984.

It gets better

Just think about the results of this skewed finding regarding not only cardiac but also obesity, diabetes and cancer in terms of the numbers of people adversely affected by the intake of refined sugar that was blessed by Harvard back in the 60s. This fubar goes in concert with Exxon gaming the system back in the 70's regarding climate change and the use of fossil fuels. 

As often stated in BRT, It's all about the money.
