sugarAs a total wellness practice we are concerned with not only your oral health but the health of your entire body.  So that is why this article we ran across grabbed our attention.  Yesterday, documents published in a major medical journal reveal that the sugar industry has been, shall we say, less than forthcoming.  As in for decades.  The documents show  that the sugar industry paid scientists to downplay the effect of sugar on our health.  Back in the 60’s research started to link sugary diets with the country’s high rate of heart disease.  Turns out the sugar industry paid researchers to publish findings that would shift the blame to fats.  Then along came our decades-long obsession with low-fat diets, and food companies pumping products with sugar (and salt) so that they still tasted good.  The article states “The revelations are important because the debate about the relative harms of sugar and saturated fat continues today…For many decades, health officials encouraged Americans to reduce their fat intake, which led many people to consume low-fat high-sugar foods that some experts now blame for fueling the obesity crisis.”  Heart disease is the #1 killer in America and newer (and hopefully valid) research shows that sugar and fat are both to blame for the country’s health issues.  So put down that doughnut and click here to read the entire article.
