    Well you could prove us wrong and cite some relevant research and prove that you've actually looked at the research Lustig cites (most of which is absolutely terrible, by the way).

    That article immediately loses any credibility simply because the very first thing shown on the page are the soda cans. What exactly is in them?
    That's just deliberately misleading nonsense.

    Sugar lights up the same receptors in your brain as cocaine and etc.

    But I don't thinks it necessarily says anything about how bad/good sugar or cocaine is just b/c they both light up the reward/euphoria receptors. So what? Coffee, "love", sex, chocolate, and exercise all light up certain reward/happiness receptors in the brain. Drugs are "bad" because they have other long term effects AND they are addicting. No reason to extrapolate a very narrow phenomenon and jump to conclusions.

    Thats an excellent series.

    Important conclusion for those too lazy to read the whole thing:

    "Conclusion: in order to keep incentive salience (“wanting”) under control, make sure that hedonic impact (“liking”) is always accompanied by nutrition. Eat delicious but nutritionally dense foods, containing complete protein, healthy fats, and ample nutrients. Otherwise you’re eating food with no brakes."

    The only thing I completely agree with in OP's article is that pop machines and even sports drinks should be taken out of our schools... along with the candy vending machines. There is no reason to have that crap available to students while they are there for education purposes.

    I think Attia's article on sugar and toxic load is pretty good to clear up the other issue surrounding sugar.... I.e. is it toxic:
