    We must make up the rest. Lustig, M. They include front groups, lobbies, promises of self-regulation, lawsuits and industry-funded research that confuses the evidence and keeps the public in doubt. That decade, nutritionists in university laboratories all over America and Western Europe were scrabbling to work out the reasons for an alarming rise in heart disease levels. Little wonder that no one listened to eminent nutritionist Professor John Yudkin when he called sugar 'pure, white and deadly' back in and quite rightly warned of the links between excessive consumption and heart disease' Catherine Collins, Principal Dietician, St George's Hospital John Yudkin 8 August - 12 July was a British physiologist and nutritionist, whose books include This Slimming Business, Eat Well, Slim Well and This Nutrition Business. The president, the physician and the scientist formed a reassuring chain of male authority, and the notion that fatty foods were unhealthy started to take hold with doctors, and the public.

    When Yudkin looked at the data on heart disease, he was struck by its correlation with the consumption of sugar, not fat. When he outlined these results in Pure, White and Deadly, inhe questioned whether there was any causal link at all between fat and heart disease. These created a generalised sense that there was something harmful about sugar and that people should eat less of it. Keys loathed Yudkin and, even before Pure, White and Deadly appeared, he published an article, describing Yudkin's evidence as "flimsy indeed". Ancel Keys was brilliant, charismatic, and combative. The new "healthy" foods were low-fat but had sugar by the spoonful and Yudkin's findings threatened to disrupt a very profitable business.

    They're convinced it's the cause of several chronic and very common illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. This method is also problematic: it is virtually impossible to closely supervise the diets of large groups of people. To understand how we arrived at this point, we need to go back almost to the beginning of modern nutrition science. Robert H. Today, nutritionists struggle to comprehend a health disaster they did not predict and may have precipitated John Yudkin was born inin the East End of London. This increase was of great concern to health professionals, and it was widely attributed to an increase in the amount of fat, or of a particular type of fat, in the diet.

I like the setting because it talks about what it looked like in the past from Marms point of view and how it changed over the years. It was to the detriment of the health of millions. Advice to avoid healthy fats and stay out of the sun has been proven to be detrimental to longevity and can wreak havoc on your system.

This is the idea, now familiar, that an excess of saturated fats in the diet, from red meat, cheese, butter, and eggs, raises cholesterol, which congeals on the inside of coronary arteries, causing them to harden and narrow, until the flow of blood is staunched and the heart seizes up.

CleaveYudkin believed sugar was more harmful than refined grains and refused to use the term "refined carbohydrates" because it gave "the impression that white flour has the same ill effects as sugar".

Some claim that sugar is natural, but natural does not assure safety. After a while, a consensus emerged: the culprit was the high level of fat in our diets.

But significant reformulations in foods normally take many years. They know what happened to Yudkin and what a ruthless and unscrupulous adversary the sugar industry proved to be.

Yudkin's son, Michael, a former professor of biochemistry at Oxford, says his father was never bitter about the way he was treated, but, "he was hurt personally". She held more interest in germs and how they worked than being a counter girl at a department store and marrying well.

Many concerns about the health hazards of calorie-sweetened beverages, including soft drinks and fruit drinks and the fructose they provide, have been voiced over the past 10 years. Yudkin refers to these developments as the separation of palatability from nutritional value.
