This review is from: Pure, White and Deadly: How Sugar Is Killing Us and What We Can Do to Stop It (Paperback)
In 1986, John Yudkin proposed that glucose: changes metabolic processes; increases plasma concentrations of cholesterol and triglycerides; leads to size increases in liver, kidneys, adrenal glands; causes calcified deposits in kidneys; alters levels of estrogen, adrenal hormones, cortisol and, of course, insulin; leads to gallstones; causes vision deterioration; damages eyes, teeth, joints; changes gut flora; interferes with the body's use of protein; speeds up human growth and maturity (re: hormones). He argues his case well and backs it with data. Since then, new discoveries and even more data proves that he was right. So why almost 30 years later we are still reinventing the proverbial "wheel" in terms of the effect of sugar on human metabolism? Why were we fed the low-fat high-carb diet, metaphorically and literally, all this time?

Fructose not glucose. Glucose is the energy of life, all cells require it.

Not all cells. The brain, liver and blood cells require it, for example, but most can do at least as well, and probably better, on ketones.
