Last year, around the time the movie Fed Up was released, I wrote about sugar in our diets. After talking to someone yesterday, whom I haven't seen in many, many years and who had a heart attack not long ago, about diet and health, and sugar, I went back to those posts and reread them. They are still relevant so I thought it might be a good time to link back to them.
Just last week the Washington Post editorial board both applauded the FDA's recent outlawing of artificial trans fat, and suggested that a sugar tax could further help turn around the unhealthy eating habits of many Americans.
