Obesity is the biggest drain on our limited health care resources. They drive up the insurance costs for the rest of us and reduce the level of quality in care as doctors have less time to spend with each patient.

That’s the idea. The sugar industry is promoted by the USDA to pad the pockets of the FDA. In Marion Nestle’s book Food Politics she stated that during bill clintons presidency the president of the sugar lobbying organization had the telephone number to Bill Clinton’s desk at the White House.

Sugar isn’t really the enemy. We metabolize sugar pretty good. It’s HFCS that’s fucking everybody up because it’s now in everything. Obesity went way up when they substituted sugar w/ HFCS.

Edit: For clarification, I’m not advocating high sugar intake. You should do your best to cut both sugar and HFCS out of your diet.
