NCI Well Connect Mid-Week Brief
September 14, 2016
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that according to a study in Cancer, Causes, and Control, hair dye use for at least 15 years was associated with a higher risk of lymphoid malignancies among women?

However, a protective effect of moderate to heavy tea consumption on the risk of myeloid malignancies was observed.

If you don't use natural hair dye, choose to now. Or, become a tea drinker to help with prevention!

Have a happy, healthy day. Steve and Bonnie
Big Sugar, Harvard Hornswoggled Us
Bonnie and Steve: Before the 1960's, when public health experts began to vilify fat and animal protein, the research was mounting indicting sugar for its role in the development of heart disease. We now know why the calls for reducing amounts of sugar went away with nary a whisper, and fat became public enemy number one. The sugar industry meddled in medical research.

Researchers in this week's JAMA Internal Medicine discovered publicly-available documents from the 1960's showing the Sugar Research Foundation paid two Harvard scientists to produce a review of scientific literature deeming fat as the biggest cause for heart disease and downplaying any potential role other studies were beginning to find.

A study called Project 226 was funded by representatives of the sugar industry, who paid researchers at Harvard University $50,000, set the review's objective, contributed "research" to be included with the study and approved drafts as it was produced.

When the study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, however, its industry funding was not disclosed, obscuring significant bias that may have affected the health of millions of Americans since its publication.

There were 340 documents between sugar industry representatives and two Harvard researchers, leading to the two-part study, "Dietary Fats, Carbohydrates and Atherosclerotic Disease," published in 1967.

The study led government agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to structure dietary guidelines based on reducing fat in the average diet, but leaving sugar relatively untouched.

As despicable as this is, we should not be surprised. The same thing happened with Big Tobacco. The same thing has and is currently happening with Big Pharma. This is why it is crucial that we always keep a healthy sense of skepticism and common sense!
