Killer fructose

Yep.  It may sound a little dramatic, but I invite you all to watch the following and see how fructose is a killer through heart disease.  See, you’ve been programmed to believe that if we lowered our fat intake, we would be healthy and we would prevent heart disease.

And if we had high LDL cholesterol, we could just pop some pills and the heart disease risk would go down, right?

Only, that isn’t quite the case.    I was shocked when I first read of sugar actually being the culprit behind heart attacks.    Even more shocking is the connection between sugar and cancer, but Dr. Lustig does not get into that, unfortunately.

Without further ado, here is the video.  It’s an hour and a half, but well worth your time.  Anything is better than sitting watching *cough* reality shows or sitting on your bum playing video games.

Be well, my friends. 🙂
