In 1972, a British scientist sounded the alarm that sugar – and not fat – was the greatest danger to our health. But his findings were ridiculed and his reputation ruined. How did the world’s top nutrition scientists get it so wrong for so long?
The latest updates to our official Dietary Guidelines recently released by the Obama administration has some good information, particularly regarding sugar intake.

The guidelines, updated every five years, advise Americans to limit sugar intake to no more than 10% of daily calories.
Better advice would be to eliminate sugar entirely.
