Food industry apparently influences our thinking about sugar intake

A New study has come up with the claim that the food industry influences the way we think about sugar intake. The study criticizes the sugar guidelines that suggest cutting down the sugar in our food items in order to reduce the chances of diseases like diabetes and obesity.

“This comes right out of the tobacco industry’s playbook: cast doubt on the science. This is a classic example of how industry funding biases opinion. its shameful.” said Marion Nestle, an NYU professor and nutrition expert, in an interview with the New York Times.

The existing evidence that sugar intake should be low is based on non-concrete facts according to the study and at the same time, most of the researches were funded by food multinationals.
