Sugar Industry Hid Known Health Risks

A recent article in JAMA Internal Medicine revealed that, in the 1960s, the sugar industry, through its Sugar Research Foundation, funded a study by Harvard scientist that sought to refute concerns about sugar's possible role in heart disease despite its known risk. The result was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1967, with no disclosure of the sugar industry funding and suggested there were major problems with all the studies that implicated sugar, and concluded that cutting fat out of American diets was the best way to address coronary heart disease. Andersen Sleater Sianni represents consumers who have been damaged by the non-disclosure of health and safety risks in products. Click here to read more about the sugar study.
