More, Yes More, on ‘Pure, White and Deadly’

Over 11,000 people in the US National Nutrition Survey provide a sturdy cohort.[1] After adjusting for age, sex, and ethnicity, the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease climbs progressively and steeply with the proportion of calories that come in the form of added sugar. How much of this is due to sugar per se or total carbohydrates is less certain.
