‘A newly-released study that questions current global health advice regarding sugar has been exposed as a propaganda piece financed by the food and sugar industry and authored by industry insiders.
The study, published this week in The Annals of Internal Medicine, was immediately criticized by The New York Times and others for its blatant attempt to shift the blame away from the sugar industry for its contribution to the global obesity crisis and a range of other diet-related health issues.
From The New York Times:
“The review was paid for by the International Life Sciences Institute, a scientific group that is based in Washington, D.C., and is funded by multinational food and agrochemical companies including Coca-Cola, General Mills, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, Kraft Foods and Monsanto. One of the authors is a member of the scientific advisory board of Tate & Lyle, one of the world’s largest suppliers of high-fructose corn syrup.”’
