Nutrition: Understanding Sugar—Is Sugar Bad?
Exploring the Sugar Debate
What is the latest debate in nutrition? Sugar. Interestingly enough, sugar is in nearly every food product we consume. Even "natural foods" including fruits, juices, and even yogurt, contain high levels of sugar in the form of fructose. High fructose corn syrup in many food forms has a bad rep, but, it may be surprising to know that sugar is sugar—no matter what form. So, does that mean that high fructose sugar is more "dangerous" than sugar in other forms? Or is sugar in any form (in absence of fiber) bad? This seems to be the debate.
