Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“The hypothesis addressed in this book, for instance, is that sugar is the dietary trigger of obesity and diabetes and, if so, the diseases such as heart disease that associate with them. But this hypothesis is ultimately about what happens to us over decades—the time it takes chronic diseases to manifest themselves—and not months, as is the case, say, with vitamin-deficiency diseases like scurvy or beriberi. In the late 1960s, when administrators at the National Institutes of Health considered doing a trial that would test the hypothesis that dietary fat causes heart disease and thus, ultimately, the shortening of our lives, they concluded that it would require perhaps a hundred thousand subjects and would cost at least one billion dollars. And they were justifiably concerned that such a study still couldn’t be trusted to give a reliable and definitive result. (That’s why replication, ideally by independent investigators, is also considered key to the scientific process: a necessary step before a hypothesis is accepted as likely to be true.) So such a study was never undertaken.”

–From Gary Taubes’s “The Case Against Sugar.” (2016)
