ABSTRACT
There is now evidence of several different kinds to support the view that, in addition to nondietary factors, an important dietary factor in the etiology of IHD is the consumption of large amounts of sugar. Some of the evidence is evolutionary, suggesting that the eating of sugar is currently the most important example of man's ability to separate palatability from nutritional value. Some of the evidence is epidemiological. Secular studies show that there has been a greater increase in sugar than in other dietary components in populations in whom there has been a great increase in prevalence of the disease. International statistics show a better relationship of mortality due to IHD with sugar consumption than with fat consumption. Studies of particular populations reveal no exception to this relationship, although they show several exceptions to a relationship with fat. Examination of the diets of individuals has demonstrated that those that develop the disease have not been eating more fat than those that do not develop the disease, but they have been eating more sugar. Finally, experiments with animals and human beings, although so far relatively few, have shown that dietary sugar produces a number of metabolic changes, including changes in the lipids. Further studies of this sort may well reveal a possible mechanism for the production of the disease. My own view is that, in spite of the small amount of information we have so far accumulated regarding the role of dietary sugar in the etiology of IHD, it is already more convincing than the vastly greater body of information that has been adduced in the last 12 years or so in support of the hypothesis that dietary fat is a major culprit.
