Sugar poisoning racket

“If only a small fraction of what we know about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive, that material would promptly be banned.” - John Yudkin

"The bottom line is that sugar upsets the body chemistry and suppresses the immune system.  Once the immune system becomes suppressed, the door is opened to infectious and degenerative diseases.  The stronger the immune system the easier it is for the body to fight infectious and degenerative diseases."---Nancy Appleton, Ph.D.

[The main poison of the Medical Mafia, medical people still promote it!  Sets up the conditions for alcohol addiction (10% of the population), destroys teeth leading to toxic dentistry like mercury amalgam, the main cause of Alzheimer's, and is the main cause of arthritis, Obesity & heart disease, and cancer rate rose after it's increase.  Plays a part in infectious disease by suppressing the immune system.]

[2012] Big Sugar's Sweet Little Lies. How the industry kept scientists from asking: Does sugar kill? By Gary Taubes and Cristin Kearns Couzens   On federal panels, industry-funded scientists cited industry-funded studies to dismiss sugar as a culprit…. Big Sugar found a reliable advocate in Frederick Stare, whose department at Harvard was bankrolled by the likes of Kellogg, Kraft, and Coca-Cola…. Leading the panel that evaluated sugar for the FDA: George Irving, a former chair of the scientific advisory board for the International Sugar Research Foundation, an industry group….. The sugar review panel cited five reports to contradict the notion that sugar consumption leads to diabetes—all had industry ties…. By 1999, the average American would be eating more than double the amount of sugar the FDA had deemed safe in 1986…. "The science is in," Lustig says. But the industry is going to fight tooth and nail to prevent that science from translating into public policy."

[2016 April] The sugar conspiracy  “If only a small fraction of what we know about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive,” wrote Yudkin, “that material would promptly be banned.” The book did well, but Yudkin paid a high price for it. Prominent nutritionists combined with the food industry to destroy his reputation, and his career never recovered. He died, in 1995, a disappointed, largely forgotten man.

[2015 March] How Sugar Kills The Secrets of Sugar is a Canadian documentary about the conspiracy by the sugar industry and processed food companies to conceal the damaging effects of sugar on human health. For decades, the medical establishment has led us to believe that our intake of animal fat is responsible for soaring rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. It turns out the real culprit all along is sugar (see The Big Fat Surprise).  Investigators have uncovered industry documents going back to the 1950s linking excess sugar intake with health problems. In 1972, researcher John Yudkin published the book Pure, White and Deadly about research linking sugar to heart disease. The response by the food industry was a vicious campaign to portray Yudkin as an incompetent quack. This, in turn, led to a thirty-year shutdown of institutional funding for research into sugar’s health effects. 

[2015 Feb] BMJ investigation reveals network of links between public health scientists and sugar industry  Public health scientists and a government committee working on nutritional advice receive funding from the very companies whose products are widely held to be responsible for the obesity crisis....former HNR researcher, Susan Jebb, professor of diet and population health at the University of Oxford and chair of the government's Responsibility Deal Food Network, received support for her work from Coca-Cola, Sainsbury's, Cereal Partners and Rank Hovis McDougal, among others. Between 2008 and 2010, Coca-Cola donated £194,000 to one research study on which she was the principal investigator.  Listed as sole or co-principal investigator on 10 industry supported research projects between 2004 and 2015, Jebb attracted funding worth £1.37 million to the HNR unit. Some of the companies that supported her work at HNR, including Unilever and Coca-Cola, are now members of the Responsibility Deal, which Jebb chairs.

[2015 Feb] Research into obesity receives hundreds of thousands of pounds of funding from the junk food industry, report reveals  The investigation by the BMJ found the scientist overseeing the strategy, Professor Susan Jebb (pictured) received £194,652 for a clinical trial by Coca-Cola between 2008 and 2010.  In total, she has been given £1.37million towards her research since 2004 from firms including Nestle cereals, Sainsbury’s and Unilever, whose brands include Ben & Jerry’s, Magnum and Walls ice cream.  Professor Jebb was appointed the Government’s adviser on obesity in 2011 by former health secretary Andrew Lansley, who also disbanded the existing group of experts who had been very critical of the Responsibility Deal.

[2014 Dec] Sugar - Not Salt - Bigger Threat To Blood Pressure

[2014 March] A lethally sweet relationship: An excoriating attack by a cardiologist on the cosy links between politicians and the food giants, whose refusal to cut sugar levels is causing countless deaths  The Food and Drink Federation, the industry lobby group, for instance, has had 16 meeting with ministers since the last election and an astonishing 99 with Government officials. By contrast, we in Action On Sugar have had just one, although a second, we’re told, is in the pipeline.

"Nearly 2500 years ago the Greeks had already realized that one of the most important of empirical facts is that correct explanations are nearly always simple explanations. There is a fragment (176) in Aeschylus, from the last play, that says so  ('for the words of truth are simple').....This is also in line with the expressed belief of one of the great architects of modern nuclear physics the late Lord Rutherford, that if a theory is any good, it should be under­standable by an ordinary barmaid."---- T.L. Cleave  (The Saccarine Disease 1974 p.iv)
