So far, we have only heard about the cholesterol and fat in increasing the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. However, the factual truth has been hidden with a motive. The sugar industry has financed the professors of the Harvard University to manipulate the original research results. As per the reports, the results of clinical trials have been skewed up for various benefits. Several research scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, were funded by the massive sugar industries to keep away the association of sweeteners with different cardiac problems. A brighter and bigger focus was intentionally offered to fats and its byproducts.
There is substantial evidence to support the link between the Harvard School of Public Health and the Sugar Research Foundation. During 1954, Henry Hass, the president of the Sugar Research Foundation spoke about the importance of adopting a low-fat diet to prevent heart diseases. He wanted the American Society of Sugar Beet Technologists to capitalize on opportunities to promote the growth of sugar processing industries. This approach allowed the sugar businesses to enhance their market share as well as scaled their growth tremendously. The transparency in research studies should be amplified to overrule such issues. It is imperative to emphasize on unbiased and quality research for valid claims.
