Default How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/13/we...me-to-fat.html

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instead, newly released historical documents show.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 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.

Default How the Sugar Industry Shifted Blame to Fat

I HAD to come back here to see whether this was being discussed. I
think back to all the great blood-test results that low-carbers have
reported. I also think of my sister who always plays by the rules and
thus until recently wouldn't even eat nuts or other healthful things...
and who is on statins even though she has been scrupulous in her
avoidance of fats. Is it any wonder that I continue to say that I don't
want to meet with a nutritionist!? I wonder how long it will take for
health professionals to come around to acceptance and recommendation of
low-carb diets?

An excellent post and links, David. Thank you! While I've known that
for years, I didn't know that knowledge was that widespread. I thought
it was just something I'd sleuthed out for myself (and possibly
misguided or wrong). Thanks for letting me know I wasn't just losing my
mind.
