  • 60 minutes "is sugar toxic"

    60 Minutes Is sugar toxic? - CBS News - YouTube

    IMO this Doctor hit this out of the park, I was watching this with my parents last night and it really began opening their eyes. I was thrilled to hear cholesterol being used in its correct context... And super surprised something like this has made it this main stream.

    If you liked that then you'll really like this 7 part UCTV show with Dr Lustig

    The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 1): An Epidemic for Every Body - YouTube
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

      This was great, quick and to the point. I wish he would have included more foods, condiments, etc. to really drive it home. Regardless, having this on 60 minutes gave me credibility to family members as it echoed everything I have been saying.

        When I was a kid in the late 60s (early 70s) we were warned not to eat too much candy because it would lead to "sugar diabetes". You never hear that anymore. Now sugar diabetes is called "Type 2 Diabetes"

          I agree, but I think just getting the word out to the general public that fats found in whole, unprocessed foods aren't the villain is a step in the right direction. For some reason family members have to see it on tv before they believe us....sigh..I'm in the same boat.

            Wow, it really makes you wonder. Every kid knows what sugar is, not every kid knows what diabetes is.

                    I don't think it's all that ground breaking... we all know sugar is unhealthy and toxic. What people don't know is that grains and unhealthy and act the same way sugar does in the body along with all the anti-nutrients they contain. Why doesn't someone address this along with sugar? Grains are sugar, too.

                    Those cancerous tumors with insulin receptors can get all the glocuse they need to grow from the 300-400 grams of "heart healthy" whole grains and beans that Americans will eat in place of the toxic sugar in their diet.

                      Honey isn't any better. But your ancestors rarely ate it. In fact you can feed sugar water to humming birds but not honey water. That will mess them up. Don't feed honey to toddlers Infant botulism: How can it be prevented? - MayoClinic.com

                        it's not that it's so ground breaking, I just think its good that things like this are making it more main stream. Everyone has known sugar is bad, sure but it's always been just "it'll make you fat or give you diabetes." I think grains will, one day follow in this as people open their eyes.

                          Wow, that one "sensible" lady in the video recommends 10 teaspoons of sugar a day as healthy?

                            My parents thought I joined a cult; they were at ease when I explained the group would never consume Kool-Aid or any deviation of such a “toxic” drink.

                              lol, sorry, this video is such garbage.

                              The study that the woman is explaining is laughable. They replaced 25% of someone's calories with sugary drinks and their health deteriorated? This proves that getting 25% of your calories from sugar is bad for you, which I doubt anyone is going to argue. If they added one can of soda per day to an otherwise reasonable diet and had similar results it would be interesting.

                              Lustig's claim that replacing fat with sugar in foods has caused the obesity problem is an assertion that is impossible to prove statistically. Obesity is multi faceted and has a lot more to do with excess calories than mixing around macro nutrients.

                              The cancer portion of the video says that sugar could cause a cancerous tumor to grow quicker. First of all, protein causes insulin spikes as well so you could make the argument that a piece of chicken would do something similar. Secondly you actually already HAVE TO HAVE CANCER for this to even be a concern. For anyone without a cancerous tumor, this has absolutely no bearing on their health. Basically the video is one sided and sensationalist.
