If fructose is so damned deadly, shouldn't we also be avoiding all fruit because of its fructose content?

Processed, granular fuctose was marketed as a weight loss aid only about 30 to 35 years ago. There were just as many nutrition and diet experts arguing that fructose was healthier than sugar - and there was just as much research that seemed to support the claim.

I find it hard to get behind the "fructose is more harmful than table sugar" bandwagon when I remember so clearly being duped by the opposing claim that "fructose is healthier than table sugar."

And sugar is by far, not the only food that comes in and out of favor for weight loss. If you live long enough, you see that most nutrition claims end up being cyclical. They come in and out of fashion like clothing styles.
