Canada: Sugar industry suppressed health effects study 50 years ago

California researchers uncovered documents outlining a secret study that – if completed and published – would have changed how sugar is regulated and how we consume it today.

A trip to the grocery store these days can be a daunting task. Knowing whether an item is actually healthy or whether it’s just a sugar-packed product packaged to have a health halo can be a challenge.

Health Canada says it is “concerned about the amount of sugar Canadians are consuming” and promises that changes are coming to nutrition labels soon to help us make healthier choices.

Even retailers have taken notice that Canadians are prioritizing less sugary diets.
