Is sugar the new tobacco? Would it surprise you to learn that scientists, the government and sugar industry knew the toxic effects of sugar 40 years ago, but covered it up? In the 1970’s there was a debate going on in the government and scientific world about whether fat or sugar was the cause of heart disease. Back then, research began to come out that SUGAR NOT FAT was the cause of heart disease. When they caught wind of this, the sugar industry launched a marketing campaign, that was so successful, FAT became the bad guy. (They eventually won an award for their successful marketing) AND, here we are, 40 years later, fatter than ever.
This movie is an eye opening documentary about the toxic effects of sugar and the story behind secret documents that revealed the sugar industry cover up.
