Sugar vs Fat

Sugar vs Fat

In the 1960s, the sugar industry paid three Harvard scientists $50,000 to say that heart disease was most likely caused by saturated fat. After their report was published in JAMA, diets concentrating on low fat gained the endorsement of many health authorities. Decades of this misinformation campaign shaped improper nutritional advice and caused the rise of heart disease in America. When WHO wanted to add a limit sugar to no more than 10% of a healthy diet, America threatened to pull out their funding if they didn't raise it to at least 25%.
