DESCRIPTION: Meat and sugar increase uric acid levels, which are associated with increased risk of gout, hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, prediabetes, diabetes, kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. What does the Miocene Era have to do with anything? Make sure you see the “prequel” to this video Miocene Meteorites and Uric Acid (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/miocene-meteorites-and-uric-acid). No surprise that the meat and sugar industries both got upset with the latest round of dietary guidance from the federal government. See Dietary Guidelines: Pushback From the Sugar, Salt and Meat Industries (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-guidelines-pushback-from-the-sugar-salt-and-meat-industries/) and Dietary Guidelines: Corporate Guidance (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-guidelines-corporate-guidance/). Is the sugar in fruit juice as bad as the sugar in the sugar bowl? The title of tomorrow’s video of the day kind of gives it away: Apple Juice May Be Worse Than Sugar Water (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/apple-juice-may-be-worse-than-sugar-water/).
