How many of us really stick to such guidelines given that sugar is hidden in almost everything? How much extra do you think you consume a day now that you are more informed? I for one was surprised by how just how much influence a clearly self-interested conglomerate can have on a nation and even on science, despite so much evidence to the contrary. It makes you more seriously consider just who influences what we eat and whether we really know what goes into our bodies on a daily basis.
My guest blog on the great Mixed Medic blog of Nia Elin with a bit of a British perspective on the sugar tales and lobby.
