Food Industry Study Slams Recommended Sugar Intake Limits

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

A study made headlines after stating that there is no way of knowing just how much sugar consumption is too much, and the methods used to create dietary sugar intake limits are flawed.

CNN’s headline reads: “How much sugar is OK? Paper adds to debate.” Hmm, not really. The study was funded by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), a nonprofit with ties to Hershey’s, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonald’s, Mars, and Kraft Foods. [1]

There’s not much of a debate when the companies funneling money into research make soda, candy, and processed foods.

Study author Dr. Sharon Meropol said:

“Antibiotic resistance increasingly threatens our ability to treat our children’s infections. Efforts to control this trend are urgently needed from all of us, such as using antibiotics only when necessary, and eliminating agricultural use of antibiotics in healthy animals.” [1]

For the study, researchers assessed current trends by analyzing data on approximately 94,000 children under 18 who were treated at one of 48 U.S. hospitals for an Enterobacter infection between 2007 and 2015.

The team found that, by 2015, 1.5% of these infections were resistant to antibiotics, an increase from 0.2% in 2007. This represented a more than 700% increase over 8 years. These children had hospital stays that were 20% longer than patients with infections susceptible to antibiotics.

Older children, children with other health problems, and kids living in the Western U.S. were more likely to develop an Enterobacter infection. [2]
