1078: The Sugar Vs Fat War with UCSF Professor of Medicine Stanton Glantz


There are three macronutrients: fat, protein and carbohydrates. If we can be convinced to eat less of one, we will eat more of another.

Fifty years ago, the sugar industry paid three Harvard scientists $50,000 in today’s dollars to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and to promote saturated fat as the culprit. Their research was published in the New England Journal of Medicine

Last year, the New York Times revealed how Coca-Cola, the world’s largest producer of sugary beverages, has provided millions of dollars in funding to researchers to play down the link between sugary drinks and obesity.

This year, the Associated Press reported that candy makers were funding scientific studies that claim children who eat candy tend to weight less than children who do not eat candy.

Internal sugar industry documents discovered by UCSF Professor of Medicine Stanton Glantz and postdoctoral fellow Cristin E. Kearns suggest that five decades of dietary warfare between simple carbohydrates and saturdated fats have been dominated by sugar industry money.

Consequent to the fifty years of dietary warfare, generations of consumers avoided eating foods containing saturated fats in favor of foods containing simple carbohyrates, with the result being obvious for all to see.

That industry funded research could be used to shape the nation’s diet leads us to ask...

Should we believe all they tell us to believe?
