What do Sugar, Trans Fat, and Vaccines Have in Common?

What do Sugar, Trans Fat, and Vaccines Have in Common?

Here's an interesting article about Sugar, Trans Fat, and Vaccines.   It appears that we are still often made to feel unsure about what exactly is safe to eat these days.  Research done a few years ago is being refuted quite often especially when it comes to nutrition.  This is often making us quite unsure of what to buy in the way of healthy food.


The sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead, newly released historical documents show.

The internal sugar industry documents, recently discovered by a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, and published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that five decades of research into the role of nutrition and heart disease
, including many of today’s dietary recommendations, may have been largely shaped by the sugar industry.
They were able to derail the discussion about sugar for decades,” said Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine at U.C.S.F. and an author of the JAMA Internal Medicine paper. [emphases mine]
