Dr. Lustig Presents at the 2015 McGraw Cancer Awareness Symposium

Dr LustigTROY (October 26, 2015) - Those who want to debate whether processed food is better for people than real food need only look around them, Robert Lustig, MD, MSL, told those attending the annual McGraw Cancer Awareness Symposium on Oct. 26.

Dr. Lustig, author of “Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease,” weaved scientific information with real life experiences to show how processed food and the increased use of sugar have helped numbers for obesity and Type 2 diabetes to soar. 

Along with that, “the cost of health care has accelerated,” Dr. Lustig said. “The cost is unsustainable.”

Dr. Lustig is a neuroendocrinologist, pediatric endocrinologist, professor, researcher, author, lecturer and authority on fructose metabolism. He currently is a professor of pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology and member of the Institute of Health Policy Studies at the University of California in San Francisco.

The processed food journey began in the mid-1960s with introduction of products such as TV dinners, he said. With the advent of processed food, consumption of meat and dairy product have declined while processed food doubled in 30 years, he said.  With the increased consumption of processed food, the consumption of sugar has increased. The American Heart Association recommends no more than six added teaspoons of sugar for adult women and no more than nine added teaspoons of sugar for adult men daily.  

“What happens when a generation of Americans stop cooking? They don’t teach their children,” Dr. Lustig said. “If you don’t know how to cook, you are hostage to the food industry.”

Some food industry businesses “are beginning to wake up” to the problem, but there’s a long way to go to reverse the emphasis on the wrong types of food, he said. 

“Processed food is an experiment that failed. We poured a lot of money into it, a lot of effort … and it’s a big fat loser and we’re big and fat and sick because of it,” Dr. Lustig said.

A return to an emphasis on real foods needs to be pursued, which will require changes in subsidies and changes in technologies, he said. “Can the food industry be overhauled? Of course it can. Do they want to? Of course not,” Dr. Lustig said.

He compared the challenge to the drive to get seat belts in cars, require bicycle helmets, crack down on drunk driving and prohibit smoking in public places.

“Today, they are all facts of life. Why? Because we educated the public and the public understood,” he said.

Dr. Lustig urged people to consider five proposals: A healthy beverage initiative; change Type 2 diabetes’ name to processed food disease; roll back subsidies for key elements of processed foods; place on real food a seal for food purity; and remove sugar from the Food and Drug Administration’s Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) list. Dr. Lustig assured the audience he is not anti-dessert, but not dessert for each meal and snacks. “When you have a dessert, make it something to live for,” he said.
