Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods.

    Gil Scharf 2 years ago It's ridiculous people in the comments either attack him for giving advice while being "fat" which he isn't or for promoting low carb and hating on fruit which he doesn't. He is simply talking about how fructose can negativly effect your health exspecialy your liver. He stated several times how fruit is healthy because all the fructose is included in even more fiber and how clutures who eat lots of rice are perfectly healthy. His main opponent is procesed fructose exspecialy in soft drinks and people try to make it seem like he is preaching against apples or something. I normaly see no point in complaining about comment sections but one scroll makes it painfully obvious that most people complaining didnt even finish the first 20 minutes.

    Pam Jones 6 days ago I so agree. All the negativity is that obviously from folks who have dinner ne no research or looked at themselves closely.

    Falcian Jinn 6 days ago An older man who is getting a little heavier is normal and something we can see in our ancestors. Our bodies get older and as we get more infirm and hormones start to change we have more trouble keeping our 20 year old bodies. I think his point is that the young people are having obesity problems, which is not normal and we haven't seen in past times and will hurt the quality of life of the next generation.
