Sugar-obesity link

Findings published this past week from a nearly 30-year, 5000-person longitudinal study by the University of Minnesota suggest a strong correlation between sugar intake and obesity. Interestingly, sugar consumption and obesity concurrently increased over this period, even as overall fat intake in the sample population decreased. While the results are perhaps unsurprising to many, a representative of the US Sugar Association challenged the findings, saying “there is no scientific evidence to support a need to set an intake level for sugar.” Learn more and decide for yourself at Added Sugars and More added Sugars.
