The Sugar Industry Owns You, And You Don’t Even Know It
August 2, 2017
Half a century ago, the sugar industry deliberately manipulated health research to hide the terrible things sugar does to our bodies—and then paid scientists to put the blame on fat.
It sounds like a conspiracy theory, I know. But it’s not. This is what huge corporations do to protect and grow their net profit.
Their shenanigans worked. Fifty years later, sugar is literally everywhere and in everything. Worse still, huge parts of the food industry use sugar to literally engineer cravings using snack food, keeping us addicted, increasingly obese—and, of course, paying these corporations our money.
We are literally paying food manufacturers to make us less healthy, while many people, at the same time, pay a monthly gym membership to stay in shape. You see how ridiculous this is, right?
