I am reading a book called The Great Cholesterol Myth
by Johnny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S. and Stephen Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C. (he is a cardiologist) and it appears from reading this book that ALL SUGAR is bad.http://authoritynutrition.com/coconut-sugar/
This article pretty much says the same thing. Sugar is addictive and should be weaned from on's diet. It is nothing more than empty calories that pack a very destructive punch over the long term. REading this book will really put you off sugar. While some may argue that the theories posited in the above referenced book could be considered a one-size-fits-all approach to a healthy heart, I think the Blood Type Diet and the Geno Type Diet rate sugar as pretty much bad for all.
