‘That Australian Paradox’

 Two bowls of sugar, one containing sugar cubes and the other with castor sugar.

As our lifestyle related diseases such as obesity and diabetes rise it amazes me that senior academic dietitians at Sydney Uni continue to promote the Australian Paradox.

Jennie Brand Miller and Alan Barclay, with his links to Coca Cola, promoted the concept that sugar consumption went down when obesity levels went up.

They have been shown to be wrong and their data was flawed. Brand Miller doesn’t seem to respond to requests for interviews about it. Sort of leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
