  • Sugar - More than Meets the Eye

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/14/2014

    Ocular Nutrition SIG Symposium from Academy 2014 Denver

    50 years of dietary guidelines have emphasized "low fat" and "low cholesterol" eating. Manufacturers have obliged by creating foods with increasing sugar and wheat/gluten content, while promoting exercise and widespread use of statins to lower cholesterol. Yet Americans have become heavier and less healthy at an alarming rate. Our panelists do a fast-paced "root cause evaluation" of the science of sugar with respect to: 1) Diabetes/Cardiovascular Disease, 2) Alzheimer's Disease and 3) Cancer.
