Professor Robert Lustig MD, takes the view that sugar – not dietary fat – is the primary driver of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and many other serious health problems, including mental health disorders.  All of these diseases are associated with various hormonal and metabolic abnormalities known as the ‘metabolic syndrome’, which develops gradually over time and is known to be diet-related.

If Professor Lustig is right, then most of the public health advice aimed at reducing obesity and related chronic health conditions over the last forty years has had the wrong emphasis, because the ‘low-fat’ diets typically recommended for weight loss and heart health are almost always high in sugar and other refined carbohydrates.
