  • More evidence that “diet” soft drinks do more harm than good. It appears frequent consumption of diet soft drinks increases the risk of vascular events such as strokes and heart attacks.
  • Sugar is under fire again! See Marion Nestle’s post Are sugars toxic? and check out the commentary that sparked all of the debate “The toxic truth about sugar” by Lustig et al. The information is overinflated and the tone alarmist but an interesting read all the same.  Will the U.S. impose a sugar tax? Should Canada? Thoughts?
