New JAMA Medical Alert: Sugar Causes Heart Disease (Is This Possible?)

What's Your Fasting Glucose Level?
Dr. Mark Hyman, MD and author of several books, including The Blood Sugar Solution, has been fighting an all-out war against sugar consumption in the United States. 

He claims that excessive dietary sugar is the root of nutritional evil and "causes heart attacks, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer and dementia, and is the leading cause of liver failure in America."

He's NOT a quack. 

The Journal of the  American Medical Association recently published a study involving 40 thousand people. 

The study conclusion states that "Most US adults consume more added sugar than is recommended for a healthy diet. We observed a significant relationship between added sugar consumption and increased risk for CVD (cardiovascular disease) mortality."


Fat doesn't cause heart disease; sugar is the culprit.

There was no reason for the fat scare that started 50 years ago and led to low fat food and low fat diets. Now that that trans fats have been identified as a dietary no-no, all other fats have been re-accepted into the nutritutional mainstream.

But the writing is on the wall for sugar. It cannot be eliminated, but certainly should be minimized in any healthy eating plan. 

A Low Sugar Eating Plan
I have used and have been recommending a low sugar/low carb eating plan ever since I read Dr. Hyman's book. Now the JAMA study cited above has given his work added credibility.

Sugar is the enemy of good nutrition.
