Walter… we eagerly await some scientific evidence for that claim.
The Washington Post reports:
“Telling people the problem is all fructose is completely wrong,” says Walter Willett, chair of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health. “In the amounts being consumed, sugar can lead to serious damage and premature death. I think it’s fair to say that’s toxic,” he says. “But it doesn’t mean everything else is good.”
As sugar intake increased during the 20th century, so did life expectancy. Certainly too much sugar, like too much of anything, can be a problem. What level is “too much” will likely vary from person to person. But there is no evidence that typical sugar consumption in a healthy individual poses any problem whatsoever.
