Sweet Site

New website lists health consequences of excess dietary sugar

If you’re looking for a sweet website, you might want to visit this one: sugarscience.org. It was launched by health scientists at the University of California San Francisco to provide information to the public on the health consequences of excess dietary sugar. At a time when type 2 diabetes is increasing in Americans and high-fructose corn syrup is an ingredient in sodas and snacks, all of us need to be sugar savvy. On the new website, you can:

• Ask the Sugar Scientists questions
• Download resources
• Sign up for a newsletter
• Read the latest research from journal articles
• Decode food labels, finding hidden sources of sugar
