CHICAGO Could too much sugar be deadly? The biggest study of its kind suggests the answer is yes, at least when it comes to fatal heart problems.

I mean, this time, its not your boyfriend whos the cold-blooded
Guess I’ll just have too die . Ain’t give’n up my jelly donuts. From my cold dead hands.
In other news, grass is green, and water is blue.
Current medical advice — drop the sugar, load up on marijuana instead.
So - How long have you been on The Force?
Another “empty” AP article. Medical BS.
Chicago article, in NJ Newspaper (seems like I remember a heavy weight governor from there).
Ending with this:
“Dr. Jonathan Purnell, a professor at Oregon Health & Science Universitys Knight Cardiovascular Institute, said while the research doesnt prove “sugar can cause you to die of a heart attack, it adds to a growing body of circumstantial evidence suggesting that limiting sugar intake can lead to healthier, longer lives.”
Sugar is the latest hyped killer. My husband is going on about it most tiresomely.
I suspect the U.S. sugar producers, those guys in Florida, got too big for their britches and let the payments to their legislators lapse. Look for a resurgence of high-fructose corn syrup, “Not as bad for you as they thought!”
Ain’t no cop,,, just like jelly and cream filled donuts.
If doughnuts cause death, then why haven’t we seen more cops dropping like flies in the street? Well, actually their patrol cars, ‘cause cops don’t walk beats any more. Though, there may be a cause and effect relationship in that direction.......
None of us are getting out of this alive, anyway.
I never liked powdered donuts, even back in the days when I could eat sugar.
Living causes death. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
My first question is who paid for it and who is most commercially affected? Then I draw my conclusions to the initial veracity, or lack thereof.
It will take some of my valuable time, but I will get to it to find out exactly what kind of “sugar” they are focusing in on. Be it processed cane sugar, or processed corn sugars, or natural sugars also known as glucose.

So if they tax sugar more it won’t do your body as much harm, right?
Damn Commies and the way they think...
My favorite sugar overload donnut is the powdered sugar chocolate cream filled donut from Dunkin’s Donuts but I rarely eat those but every few years and can only eat one when I do...: )
Chemically, regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup are made of the exact same two sugars. Table sugar consists of an exact 1:1 ratio of glucose and fructose. High fructose corn syrup, regular corn syrup (Karo), and honey all contain varying ratios of glucose and fructose. Since fructose is sweeter than glucose or regular table sugar, manufacturers using HFCS rather than table sugar can use less sugar to achieve the same sweetness.
I should point out that your body does not sense any difference whatsoever between the various forms of glucose/fructose mixtures.
It took FIVE paragraphs for this story to get to the admission that the US Center for Disease Control did this study. As far as I’m concerned then, it is pure BS.
The US Government probably has some beef against powdered sugar producers, sugar importers, sugar growers or the unions or non-unions that make up the industry.
First it was eggs are bad, then they are good, then apples (alar), then not, then bacon is bad, bacon is good, salt is bad, salt is good.
Throw in their studies of wife beating disease, gun disease, and you have an organization rife with political machinations and infested with political ideologues.
Bingo! The fascist Government/MSM complex demands its protection money... or else.
“Everyone who eats carrots dies” [Rush Limbaugh]
The article does not specify whether this guy is a physician, but he is making the same mistake that many physicians do when conducting "research." This "study" is probably the worst and weakest kind of study possible when it comes to actual medical discoveries. It is the kind of study I call a "correlational study", since all it does is gather various data, run it through statistical analysis, and call it a result if a correlation between two factors in the study shows up. In reality, simply finding a correlation means nothing. It can identify an area for further research using stronger methodology, but that is *all* it can do.
Sugar is not the problem, because no one component of the diet is responsible for health outcome. A diet needs to be balanced between the three major nutrient types: fats, sugars, and proteins. The caloric intake must not be excessive for one's activity level and size. A person eating an overall healthy diet is not going to drop dead of heart disease because they like a donut in the morning.
Most of the sugars that give a sweet taste to foods are composed of glucose and fructose in varying ratios. Chemically, your body makes no distinction between table sugar, corn syrup, "high fructose" corn syrup, honey, or the sugars found in fruit. It all tastes sweet, and your body uses it for energy and as a starting material to make biomolecules.
I have a certain quota of crap food I will eat each week. Donuts are worthless and never included.
I wouldn’t know about the difference between Mexican or American formulations of Coke. I can’t stand carbonated drinks, and I can’t stand sugared drinks (I use Splenda). In fact, eating anything sugary causes me intense pain for a few minutes, due to surgery I had as a teen.
This is ABSOLUTE B.S.
My father had a donut EVERY Morning. He would walk to the corner, get coffee and a donut.
He would then proceed to break the donut in half and break the half in half. Our German Short hair would get 1/4 and the Cockatiel would get the other 1/4.
My father ate his half of the donut. This happened religiously 7 days a week.
My dad died at 83 in very good health until 81 years old. The German Short hair was in very good health until 2 weeks before he died at the age of 15 yrs old.
The Cockatiel lived to be 18 before she fell over and died.
Theie lives prove that donuts could infact give you a nice long life!
Yes, they want us to blindly turn the control of the world over to total “know nothing” idiots.
Thanks for perspective.
Maybe its' the ones with holes are the ones we should be eating ?
What’s worse are second hand donuts. You can die just sitting next to someone who is eating donuts. Donuts are also one of the major causes of “global warming.”
Give him a cheese steak with that.
Why harp on jelly doughnuts? Here in the midwest, every one seems bent on putting waxy, Crisco-type frosting on all of the doughnuts. That stuff is a LOT worse than the jelly filled doughnut (or Bismark, if you prefer) more available in the northeast. /yankee_snobbery

All Hail Mighty (political) Science!
They also warn us mother’s milk containers cancer cells.
Who wants to live a few more years if that means living in a plastic bubble eating radishes?
chocolate french and an apple fritter please
What about too much Guiness? :-)
Me too. My grandfathers lived to 89 and 92. They ate stuff that I wouldn't go near (headcheese anyone?) But, they ate everything every day that I love...bacon, eggs, beef, potatoes, some veggies, prunes and apples, and a daily alcohol drink.
See you in 20-odd years.
That's a myth. There's no such thing as too much Guiness.
I’ll give up donuts right after I give up cigarettes. Come and get me health police.
“That powdered doughnut could kill you, study shows”
No, problem. Just switch to glazed.
