The Men Who Made Us Fat

If you haven’t seen this program on BBC 2, you should take the time to see it on the BBC iplayer. Annoyingly however the lines between High Fructose Corn Syrup and Sugar (sucrose) become blurred half way through the program which is not helpful to those seeking a healthy and balanced diet.
All things considered however the program confirms what Ragus has being saying.  Natural Pure Sugars are healthier than all the other available processed sweeteners and chemical sweetener replacements.

Simply put some sugars are converted to fat, some not. Fructose converts to fat and suppresses the action of a hormone called leptin which tells the brain when the fat cells have had enough carbohydrate.  A balanced natural diet containing natural sugars recognised by leptin tells the brain “I’ve had enough carbohydrate and I’m full”.
The message is clear. Pure sugar!
