Sugar: The Bitter Truth Explains How Toxic Sugar Can Be!
In this 90 minute video, Sugar: The Bitter Truth, Robert Lustig discusses sugar and the damage it causes. This is a University of California presentation that was VERY popular in 2009 and still is today! In fact, people are much more aware of the major implications of a diet high in sugar today, thanks to individuals like Dr. Lustig who voiced their concerns! Whether lifestyles have changed in a positive, healthy way since 2009 is a matter for debate!
A calorie is not a calorie and fructose is not glucose, Dr. Lustig says. We know this because there are good fats and bad fats. There’s good protein and bad protein. There’s good carbohydrates and bad ones. Glucose is GOOD carbohydrate – “the energy of life.” Fructose, on the other hand, is POISON, a toxin, he says. “You are not what you eat, you are what you DO with what you eat.”
Please grab a cup of green tea, sit down and enjoy this video!
Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.
