anyone see the Doctors TV show thus week?
I DVR the show so I am not sure when it aired (already deleted it), but it discussed the role of sugar in heart disease, not fat and cholesterol. And how fat/cholesterol was thought to be the culprit because it was at the scene of the crime but it is actually the inflammation brought on by the sugar that causes the body to create cholesterol as a protective measure in the vessels.
I have been noticing that they talk a lot paleo/primal thinking without actually saying it is primal/Paleo. They had a crossfit trainer on another day talking about functional workouts. They talked about how much sugar people eat each year (150lb!) , not just in sweets but in fruits and juices as well.
