Is All Sugar Created Equal?

Read Chris Kresser’s article to see why all sugar is not created equal. The “sugar is sugar” adage is misleading and should not discourage moderate consumption of healthy fruit,  or occasional raw honey, for example. These are whole, synergistically balanced foods beneficial to health.
