WDDTY - Sugar industry paid researchers to say fats caused heart disease

For nearly 50 years, saturated fats were seen as the main culprits in causing heart disease, and a discovery of some old research papers has discovered why: the sugar industry had been paying scientists to say so.

Sugar was suspected as a cause of heart disease in the 1960s, but the Sugar Association threw everyone off the scent by paying the equivalent of $50,000 to three Harvard scientists for a review that minimized the link between sugar and heart disease and instead suspected saturated fats.
