Does the threshold for toxicity of fructose apply to fruit or just to added industrial sugars such as sucrose and high fructose corn syrup?
This is the first video in our new Flashback Friday series. Over the last decade I have created more than 1,500 videos. How often have you seen me on my Live Q&A’s saying “I’ve got a video on that!”? There’s such a treasure trove of life-changing information now that I’ve decided to start digging into the video vault and bringing back one of the classics every week.
Cutting down on sugary foods may be easier said than done (see Are Sugary Foods Addictive?), but it’s worth it. This video is part of an intermittent series on the dangers of high levels of fructose in added sugars. See the first two installments in How Much Added Sugar Is Too Much? and If Fructose Is Bad, What About Fruit? That’s where I show the berry-blunting effects.
What’s this about being in oxidative debt? See my three-part series on how to pull yourself out of the red:

Ironically, fat may be more of a problem when it comes to diabetes than sugar; see:
