WHO: Sugars Accused

According to the World Health Organization the crystals of white sugar are "killer of our health".

These are known as "free sugars" and are added to food and drinks in form of sucrose (as table sugar), honey, syrup or other sweeteners causing excess weight, diabetes and tooth decay, but also fatty liver, hypertension, triglycerides and cardiovascular diseases.

Nothing to do so with the fruit sugar, or vegetables and milk, which does not give particular problems and that are still associated and nutrients.

It's no coincidence that on 7 January, the Department of Health of the US Government has revised its guidelines with dietary advice for Americans. There has been eliminated the limit of consumption of fats; the restrictions for foods with cholesterol have been cancelled, but salt and free sugars were pointed out as responsible for various chronic diseases.
