A new editorial in the British Medical Journal asks if sugar is worse for you than saturated fat.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells the "New Day" anchors, “We know over the last 40 years that the obesity rates have gone up both in adults and children. We know that heart disease remains the biggest killer of men and women alike, so maybe it wasn’t fat as much as we thought. Maybe the sugar was actually causing many of these problems.”
One way to avoid a lot of sugar?
Dr. Gupta suggests “Eat real food. If you’re eating real food as opposed to packaged food that needs sugar to store in and increase the shelf life you’re going to cut down on your sugar a tremendous amount.”
