Default How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat


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instead, newly released historical documents show.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

"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 paper.

The documents show that a trade group called the Sugar Research
Foundation, known today as the Sugar Association, paid three Harvard
scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 in today's dollars to publish
a 1967 review of research on sugar, fat and heart disease. The studies
used in the review were handpicked by the sugar group, and the article,
which was published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine,
minimized the link between sugar and heart health and cast aspersions on
the role of saturated fat.
