SugarScience.org is the authoritative source for scientific evidence about sugar and its impact on health developed by a team of health scientists from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Robert Lustig, Founding President of the IRN, is one of the Scientific Advisors for the project.
SugarScience has conducted an exhaustive review of more than 8,000 scientific papers, with a focus on the areas where the science is strongest – specifically, on diabetes, heart disease and liver disease. The goal of SugarScience is to take this information beyond medical journals to make it available and understandable to the general public, helping individuals and communities make better decisions about their health and diet.
