Robert Lustig and Alec Baldwin

A short clip from the WYNC series “Here’s the Thing” hosted by Alec Baldwin in which he interviews Dr. Robert Lustig about sugar. Transcript of the clip: “I would think very strongly about limiting access of sugar beverages to infants and children, like zero. There is no reason for it. And there’s something your listeners need to understand: there is not one biochemical reaction in your body, not one, that requires dietary fructose, not one that requires sugar. Dietary sugar is completely irrelevant to life. People say oh, you need sugar to live. Garbage.”
