Ann Intern Med. 2017; 166(4): 305-306.

“When it comes to added sugars, there are clear conflicts between public health interests and the interests of the food and beverage (F&B) industry. Studies are more likely to conclude there is no relationship between sugar consumption and health outcomes when investigators receive financial support from F&B companies. Industry documents show that the F&B industry has manipulated research on sugars for public relations purposes. Erickson and colleagues report a systematic review of the scientific basis of guidelines on sugar intake, providing another occasion for concern about these conflicts.”
