60 Minutes segment: Is Sugar Toxic?

"Last night on CBS' 60 Minutes program Dr. Sanjay Gupta reported on groundbreaking studies linking consumption of sugar to diabetes, heart disease and cancer, in addition to the more obvious health risk of obesity.  Dr Gupta also reported on the addictive effect of sugar on many people, and verified the result himself by undergoing a brain scan himself while drinking a sugary soda.  Take a look at the video.  It's important information for everyone—food addict or not."
