Sugar - The Bitter Truth
Robert H. Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF, discusses the biochemical properties of high fructose corn syrup and makes the case for why it should be considered, essentially, a poison.
His talk is focused on fructose, and goes into detail on the metabolism of it in the liver (since, unlike glucose, fructose can't be used directly by the other parts of the body). He also touches on USDA dietary recommendations, including the recent decades preoccupied with reducing dietary fat, as well as the commonly cited (kcal in - kcal out = weight change) equation and its shortcomings for addressing obesity.
