I don't think you understand. I haven't seen the video (we can't view it in this country), but what Lustig is saying is 'it is equally as bad' - and it is cheaper - meaning - it therefore has moved everywhere. He wouldn't endorse it for a second.


Dr. Lustig is saying sugar and high-fructose corn syrup are equal, and that isn't true. High-fructose corn syrup is also worse because it's cheaper.

Equating sugar and high-fructose corn syrup gives HFCS legitimacy it doesn't deserve.


As i come from a family with hereditary Diabetes 2, i may suffer from prediabetes. I also suffer from foodallergies. I can only speak for myself that sugar and all other sweet product have a totally different effect on my body. Whenever i eat HFCS, after not having read the label or f.i. in a restaurant when tired to be unable to eat anything in restaurants, i fall in a sort of comateuze state, possibly equaling a diabetes hypo. I do not have that reaction when eating sugar/real honey, not the fake one etc.

My typical breakfast

    There is no right way to finding the balance of food, just your way. My typical breakfast is whole wheat spaghetti with homemade sauce, sautéed mushrooms, and a naturally low-fat Italian cheese sprinkled on top. Works for me.
