Gary Taubes's article on sugar

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?
