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
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?
Wow, that one "sensible" lady in the video recommends 10 teaspoons of sugar a day as healthy?
Female, 5'3", 50, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
I can squat 187.5lbs, press 75lbs and deadlift 200lbs
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.
