Default 50 Years Ago, The Sugar Industry Paid Researchers To Blame Everything on Fats

50 Years Ago, The Sugar Industry Paid Researchers To Blame Everything on Fats

In the 1960s, the sugar industry quietly funded research that blamed fats for all the diseases we now know sugar causes

The sugar industry secretly funded a famous study blaming fats for coronary heart disease, while downplaying the role of sugar, researchers discovered last year while digging through old records.

The study, published in in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1965, made headlines just as scientists around the world were starting to make the association between sugar and heart disease, seemingly intended to get them to look the other way. The link today is crystal clear and uncontroversial.

Now the same researchers have found documents revealing the industry also covered up its own study linking sugar to cancer a few years later.

The study, dubbed Project 259, was funded by the sugar industry’s national trade organization, then called the Sugar Research Foundation. It found a high-sugar diet was strongly correlated with bladder cancer in rats.

Not happy with the findings, the foundation terminated the study and kept them buried for until researchers from the University of California San Francisco dug them up and published them in PLOS Tuesday.

Project 259 would have strengthened the case against sucrose as a risk factor in coronary heart disease and would have caused it to be “scrutinized as a potential carcinogen,” wrote lead researcher Cristin E. Kearns.

One recent study suggest sugar not only feeds cancer cells, but actually creates them.

Imagine how helpful it would have been to have this information 50 years ago. Maybe instead of a decades long “war on fats” policymakers would’ve had a more successful “war on sugar.”

On this issue the water is really murky. There is also a lot of emphasis put on our high carbohydrate American diet also. Where as all the bread and pasta etc. we consume is turned into suger in the digestion process. It is suggested by some that a high carbohydrate diet may be the making for a lot of health issues.

Yep, and since carbs turn into sugar in our system it still points to sugar as the bad boy.

Sad that something so good is so bad for us. But that they lied and covered it up is outrageous. How many would have lived longer / better lives if they had known the truth? It's an industry not one company doing it so how do you punish them?

Reminds me of the sham reports the alcohol industry paid for to get politicians to ban marijuana. Alcohol did not want any fair competition with mary jane.

At my age I can't throw stones in a glass house, but I believe a lot of American health problems arise from not enough physical exercise either working or playing the way we used to 50 years ago. Especially children and young adults today judging by reports of obesity in children. Too many phones, computers and video games!!
