Specifically, on "60 Minutes," Dr. Gupta will tell viewers:
"New research coming out of some of America's most respected institutions is starting to find that sugar could be a driving force behind some of this country's leading killers."
Of course, this sugar-is-toxic conclusion -- which has been gaining momentum for years -- is nothing new to those of you, who are regular visitors to this Sugar Shock Blog and to readers of my first book, Sugar Shock, which was first published in 2007.
What I find especially exciting is that Dr. Gupta will spotlight the close cancer-sugar connection, which I also explored in my book, Sugar Shock.
I also examine recent sugar-can-cause-cancer research in my upcoming book, Beyond Sugar Shock, which is being published in June by Hay House. (In the book, I guide readers to eaily break free of their sugar addiction by joining me in a fun, six-week Mind-Body-Spirit adventure.)
Anyhow, in the "60 Minutes" segment about sugar, you'll watch Dr. Gupta interview respected pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert H. Lustig, whose YouTube video, Sugar: The Bitter Truth, has gone viral, attracting 2,159,456 viewers (as of today).
Dr. Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, is not alone in his sugar-is-toxic view.
Indeed, many cutting-edge physicians, including Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra, medical consultant for my book Sugar Shock, contend that the high amount of sugar in the American diet is killing us. (By the way, I disagree with the low figures usually cited -- most Americans consume far more than the 130 or 150 pounds a year that's often mentioned in news reports.)
While I applaud "60 Minutes" for telling the nation that sugar can be toxic, I also need to congratulate Dr. Mehmet Oz for his important work drawing attention to sugar's dangers in several episodes of the top-rated "The Doctor Oz Show."
In one episode, Dr. Mehmet Oz even called sugar "The # 1 food Dr. Oz Wants Out of Your House." Hurrah!
Again, congratulations to "60 Minutes" for devoting a segment to this important sugar subject.
