The Sugar Debate | IIN Depth

Sugar may not be a four-letter word, but it sure is causing quite the controversy these days. From a New York Times magazine cover story that asks “Is Sugar Toxic?” to 2011 grad Sarah Wilson’s bestselling book I Quit Sugar and accompanying program, the media hasn’t been too sweet on the ubiquitous ingredient of late.
