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?
seriously, were any of you awake during freshman chemistry?
"Sugar addiction" is speculative
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.
