Sugar is not so bad



While I agree with most of Michael Nightingale’s letter (Nov 21) on vegetarianism, he is wrong that sugar is worse for your health than meat. For example, while many studies show that heart disease can be reversed by going on a low fat vegetarian diet (Google: Dean Ornish reverses heart disease), there is no such evidence that similar results can be achieved by going on a sugar free diet.

Taken in moderation, sugar is not that bad for you.
