SBS TV showed “The Sugar Conspiracy” on 6th Sept.  This documentary revealed the tactics of the International Sugar Association, in PR over decades, showing that fructose (sugar) does not cause dental decay, diabetes, obesity, heart disease. They convinced health authorities, governments, media, by spending $billions on propaganda that just shed doubton medical facts about fructose.

Familiar story?  the Tobacco corporations did the same thing – just shed doubt for decades, on the facts in cigarette smoking and lung cancer.  The Asbestos companies did it for decades about mesothelioma. The Fossil Fuel companies successfully shed doubt on the science about global warming.

The Sugar documentary just reminded me that all the Nuclear lobby needs to do, is to shed doubt on the science about ionising radiation. Just delay the truth – and keep on with the business!

Well – I digress, but I enjoyed it!
