The REAL White Devil

The first I heard of the big ag – FDA – medical industry – pharmaceutical industry merry-go-round was when I read a book by the Ralph Nader group: A Chemical Feast. The book called them “bedfellows”: “Scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” Think about it. Still true today.

“The Real White Devil” is a mini-documentary about the evolution of the American diet, particularly focusing on the last fifty years, detailing the rise of added sugars and processed foods, the correlation between the introduction and widespread use of high fructose corn syrup alongside rising rates of obesity, the dangers of too much fructose in the diet, and finally, asking the question: who is benefitting from the obesity epidemic?

Sugar: The Bitter Truth is a fantastic lecture by Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, in which he explores the damage caused by sugary foods. I definitely recommend you watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnni…
