I did do a search on this site for the sugar topic,
but I guess I didn't dig deep enough. If I had found this right away, I wouldn't have needed much else! http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2010nl/jun/sugar.htm
Once again, thank you Dr. McDougall.
I pretty much ignore ANYTHING from the Mercola, yes he does have some good information, but a LOT of it is bad. He's pretty much just trying to sell supplements and stuff.
I don't really pay much attention to other media docs out there (except for Dr. Mirkin---he's good) but Mercola had the Lustig talk boiled down to a readable form on his site. Other than that, I pay no attention to him and others like him.
The video however does seem to be credible. As I was watching it, I kept thinking this guy is full of it, because fructose is "fruit sugar", and I wasn't going to but into the concept that fruit is unhealthy. But then he added the line, something like "unless fructose is consumed in it's natural packaging, the whole fruit". I wish there had been more explanation of why this deadly poisonous stuff called fructose, is suddenly ok to consume once it's in the apple or banana.
The whole video does explain all that and does make sense. Although I'm not taking it 100% to heart, he does make one think about the sugar/fructose topic in a new way and I find it's always good to hear another view point, then take away what I can from it. Lustig is rabid about fructose that isn't consumed along with the whole fruit. And that part we should all know anyway, following McDougall!
