Taubes has written another article that I wanted to share. This one discusses sugar consumption - separately from carbohydrate consumption - and some real and potential consequences of it. There is not enough evidence to conclude that sugar is as detrimental as some purport it to be; but it is categorically true that refined sugar (or naturally attained sucrose for that matter) is non-essential in the human diet. In that respect, it's easy to draw some parallels with something like alcohol.
What do you think? Is Sugar Toxic?
