War on Sugar – Freakonomics

Anyone that knows me, knows I am a podcast junkie. One of the podcasts I listen to on a regular basis is Freakonomics Radio.

One of their recent episodes on sugar had an interesting interchange between Steven Dubner and an MD with the FDA.  He asked he a few pointed question about the stance of the FDA on sugar and I almost choked on the response.

“I’m not going to answer your question because my attorneys aren’t present”

Why can a medical advisor for the FDA not answer a medical related question with out an attorney if this is not simply a political game being played with the publics health.

One step closer to recognizing sugar as the main cause of our populations health decline.

I recommend you listen for yourself.
