Will the confusion about sugars never end? A recent study reconfirms the metabolic problems caused by too much fructose, but public opinion continues to blame High Fructose Corn Sweeteners (HFCS) as the new dietary evil. HFCS isn’t really high in fructose. It has about the same amount of fructose as common table sugar. Both are about half fructose and half glucose, and both cause metabolic problems when you eat too much of them. So go easy on the sugars!
Here’s what the New York Times has to say about the study.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
