NYTimes.com: Is Sugar Toxic?
If Lustig is right, then our excessive consumption of sugar is the
primary reason that the numbers of obese and diabetic Americans have

dietary cause of several other chronic ailments widely considered to be
diseases of Western lifestyles — heart disease, hypertension and many
common cancers among them.
Fascinating article. It’ll make you think twice about adding that sugar to your coffee.
