UCSF Mini Medical School for the Public - link to Dr. Robert H. Lustig's lecture: "Sugar: the Bitter Truth"

This is one of the most informative talks I have ever heard on the subject of the effect of too much sugar on insulin and obesity. Here is the link: http://www.uctv.tv/search-details.aspx?showID=16717

A few key takeaways:

  • fructose and ethanol/alcohol have several similar toxic qualities.
  • fiber is intentionally removed from several foods in production to prolong longevity of the food for export around the world.
  • fiber contributes to satiety and is often missing in food choices.

There is so much more to this lecture. I’m definitely planning to watch it again.
