Sugar Industry’s Arguments Against More Detailed Food Labeling Are Bogus – Blogger

July 3, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Food industry blogger Gretchen Goldman told a public FDA meeting on food labeling – especially  labeling of added sugar amounts – that the  “sugar interests” are obfuscating the science on sugar and health. The sugar industry claims there is no scientific evidence linking sugar with health problems. In fact, studies show that eating too much sugar increases the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lipid abnormalities and hypertension. A large part of sugar overconsumption is due to sugars added to foods during processing, a fact that needs to be addressed in labeling. The FDA is accepting written public comments on proposed food labeling changes until August 1, 2014.
