I finally finished reading the NYTimes article about the likely negative effects of eating too much sugar. People eat a crazy amount of sugar from an evolutionary perspective. The conclusion of the piece is that the science is still not conclusive, but the scientists say, “Sugar scares me.” There are likely links not just to diabetes but to many forms of cancer. And the story has the makings of a credible conspiracy because so many huge food industries would be devastated by sugar being labeled as a toxin.

Anyway. We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, I’ll aim for moderation, as usual.
