“I have eliminated refined sugar from my diet and eat as little as I possibly can,” Thompson told me, “because I believe ultimately it’s something I can do to decrease my risk of cancer.” Cantley put it this way: “Sugar scares me.” -- The Lustig video first alerted me to this issue, and the more I hear about it, the harder I try to eliminate sugar from my diet. This article is very long but I think it's very important and I urge you to take the time to read it.

It's Easter, and there's a lot of sugar around over here in the UK - probably where you are too. I watched this video a few months ago and it transformed the way I thought about sugar.

The lecture includes descriptions of the metabolic cycles by which the liver handles glucose and fructose and clearly explains why fructose is not the same as glucose for your body. Fructose needs handling in a way that could lead your body into high blood pressure, obesity and gout, and it prevents your stomach signalling to your brain that you should stop eating. Fructose separated from the fibre that delivered it is just plain toxic.

I heartily recommend watching the full 90 minutes of this one, it's changed the way I think about food and eating.

Looks like another damning finding against high sugar diets. Too late for me, but maybe you can cut back and live longer.
