Sugar: Just Say No! Part II

For part II of my Sugar: Just Say No blog, I’d like to share a UCSF Mini Medical School for the Public video. In this video, Dr Robert Lustig explores the reasons behind the obesity epidemic in the U.S. According to his research, the rise in obesity in our country is not necessarily due to a simple increase in calories and a lack of exercise. Instead, he argues that the culprit is too much fructose and not enough fiber. This dietary combination leads to altered biochemical effects and ultimately increased fat storage.

Please take some time out of your day to watch his important, interesting, and passionate lecture.
