I'm downloading his talk right now! And when he describes the 'Texas sized' Big gulp, snickers bar, and bag of Doritos for 99 cents, that right there is Social Darwinism at work. If you're poor in America (and uneducated about sugar and nutrition) and all you have is a dollar to eat for the day, this is something you might buy.Be sure to scroll down to the end & check out Dr. Lustig's lecture - it's long, but so well worth the time & effort.
Dr Lustig describes it is as a "dose dependent hepato-toxin". It is metabolised by the Liver in almost an identical way to ethanol/alcohol and much like alcohol: in small amounts it is harmless and may be beneficial but above a certain threshold it becomes "poison".Great article, intresting info on fructose, i always heard that fructose was bad but I never really understood why.
Most of those other foods "rich in fiber" come with their own load of carbs.Therefore if I am right, my advice to the non-diabetics when drinking soda is to have wheat bread or any other foods rich in fiber.... I wonder if this would work similarly as natural with how fruits works?
