Default The Sugar Conspiracy - how it happened.

In 1972, a British scientist sounded the alarm that sugar – and not fat – was the greatest danger to our health. But his findings were ridiculed and his reputation ruined. How did the world’s top nutrition scientists get it so wrong for so long?
by Ian Leslie
An article in The Guardian in April summarizes how the idea that fats were bad and carbs were good got a foothold in the modern world. An interesting, if long, read. Includes more recent controversy of low-fat/high carb vs low-carb/high-fat.

That is a seriously good read. It ties together a lot of things I hadn't put together on my own. Thanks for the link.
