Health Research Sponsored By The Sugar Industry?
A startling new study published earlier this fall reveals that the sugar industry secretly funded decades of scientific research that falsely downplayed the known health risks of sugar.
Dr. Cristin Kearns, who is featured in our new documentary film Sugar Coated, co-authored the study, blowing the lid off the sugar industry’s deliberate effort to muddy the scientific waters.
Watch this clip from the documentary to see exactly how Kearns unearthed the Sugar Association’s confidential files and connected the dots.
Sugar Coated is an indispensable classroom resource and is ideal for courses that look at public health issues, nutrition, public relations, communications, and media.

“We’re all taught to think of sugar as the most natural of sweet things, bringing smiles from cradle to grave. But it’s actually more poison than benefit, Michèle Hozer persuasively argues, in an exposé that gives sugar and its corporate pushers many lumps… A good companion piece to Robert Kenner’s recent Merchants of Doubt.”
