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. 

But is it really that simple? Is sugar really the enemy, or is it part of a natural diet? Are certain sugars, like fructose, actually good for you, or is it all the same? 

In this video, 2009 grad and TV host Robyn Youkilis delves into this hot-button nutritional issue, exploring the role sugar plays in our health and our society.
