“Is Sugar Toxic” by Gary Taubes

You probably shouldn’t eat much sugar. If you eat a lot of it you’ll get fat, and fat people get cancer more than not-fat people.

“I have eliminated refined sugar from my diet and eat as little as I possibly can,” Thompson told me, “because I believe ultimately it’s something I can do to decrease my risk of cancer.” Cantley put it this way: “Sugar scares me.”

This was published the same day as the “Do Cellphones Cause Brain Cancer” article, and although Mukherjee states evidence about how cell phones aren’t risky I still find myself thinking the same thing that Cantley says about sugar, but towards cell phones.
