More Sugar for Children, Please!

Sugar Crimes of Insulin-Illiterate American “Researchers”
Advice From the American College of Physicians
Consider the following text from The New York Times of December 19, 2016: “The review was paid for by the International Life Sciences Institute, a scientific group that is based in Washington, D.C., and is funded by multinational food and agrochemical companies. Including Coca-Cola, General Mills, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, Kraft Foods and Monsanto. One of the authors is a member of the scientific advisory board of Tate & Lyle, one of the world’s largest suppliers of high-fructose corn syrup.”
Insulin-Illiterate Professors With Corporate and Sugar Daddies!
Insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism) causes hunger for sugar. Doctors who do not test their patients with a 3-hour insulin and glucose tests do not understand this simple facts. I have never read article written by some professor who published the results of such testing with a series of fifty patients, let alone 200, or 300, of 500 tests. Yet they freely write articles about diabetes of glucose tolerance.
Here is the Conclusion Section of the article published by The Annals of Internal Medicine (the official journal of the American College of Physician. “Guidelines on dietary sugar do not meet criteria for trustworthy recommendations and are based on low-quality evidence. Public health officials (when promulgating these recommendations) and their public audience (when considering dietary behavior) should be aware of these limitations.
My Take on the Subject
We in America are blessed with world’s most insulin-illterate professors who are promoting Type 2 diabetes in children and adults.
Molecular Biology of Insulin
For professional and general readers, I present diverse aspects of molecular biology of insulin in depth in my Free Diabetes and Insulin Courses, which are posted on http://www.alidiabetes.org.
Next consider the following text from The New York Times of September, 12, 2016:
A report in September showed that those efforts began in the 1960s when the sugar industry paid scientists to cast doubt on the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead. More recently, The New York Times found that Coca-Cola had been funding scientists who played down the connection between sugary drinks and obesity. And The Associated Press reported in June that food companies paid for studies that claimed candy-eating children weigh less.
Some experts said the Annals review appeared to be an attempt by the industry to undermine sugar guidelines from the World Health Organization and other health groups that urge children and adults to consume fewer products with added sugar, such as soft drinks, candy and sweetened cereals. The paper, they say, is reminiscent of tactics once used by the tobacco industry, which for decades enlisted scientists to become “merchants of doubt” about the health hazards of smoking.
“This comes right out of the tobacco industry’s playbook: cast doubt on the science,” said Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University who studies conflicts of interest in nutrition research. “This is a classic example of how industry funding biases opinion. It’s shameful.”
But the scientists behind the paper said more scrutiny of sugar guidelines was needed. The researchers reviewed guidelines issued by the W.H.O. and eight other agencies around the world and said the case against sugar was based on “low-quality” evidence.
“The conclusion of our paper is a very simple one,” said Bradley C. Johnston, a professor of clinical epidemiology at the University of Toronto and McMaster University and the lead author of the new paper. “We hope that the results from this review can be used to promote improvement in the development of trustworthy guidelines on sugar intake.”
