While researching the perfidies of sugar I came across a conspiracy to promote sugar between the nutritionists, food industries and pharmaceutical industries that has completely devastated the human race.
In the 1970s nutritionists wrongly targeted saturated fats as being the cause of obesity and heart disease whereas a British scientist, Yudkin, contended correctly that it was sugar that was behind these problems. However, Yudkin was silenced and instead sugar was promoted in a big way in the food industry resulting in a huge spike in obesity, heart disease and diabetes which has now assumed epidemic proportions. Sweet eating has become a major pastime among people across the world and their subsequent visits to doctors is fuelling the profits of the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
SAY NO TO SUGAR has to be the slogan. This will incidentally also solve a major water availability related problem by drastically reducing the acreage under sugar cane which is a huge water guzzler.
