Talk:Sugar addiction

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Contrary to the impression left by this article, the concept of "sugar addiction" is not a part of mainstream medicine. For example, it's absent from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. I've offered a couple of sources that reflect the "fringe" nature of the concept, but really the article should be entirely recast.

As it stands, it's quite a disservice to anyone seeking information about eating disorders and merely plays into a popular tendency to overuse the term "addiction."

Sucrose or Fructose?[edit]

seriously, were any of you awake during freshman chemistry?

"Sugar addiction" is speculative[edit]

To present the existence of this condition as an established medical fact is false.

I've included sources. Please don't contradict & change without acceptable sources.

Also, please don't "message" me. I'd rather remain ignorant of activity here.

Thank! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

You must provide sources for that. You cannot just claim it's speculative. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 17:06, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
