I think it may be worth mentioning that SUGAR doesn't just refer to Beet or Cane Sugars but also includes HFCS ~ Corn Sugar (and all it's pseudonyms).
It's possible fructose-induced uric acid generation causes mitochondrial oxidative stress that stimulates fat accumulation independent of excessive caloric intake
Uric acid is associated with arterial stiffening .
Arterial stiffness is linked to amyloid deposition initiating the Alzheimer's cascade.
So we need to think about heart disease and dementia as well as diabetes and obesity.
