Various critiques of "Commentary" on sugar also published in Nature

Several follow-up correspondences have recently been published in the journal Nature in response to the commentary, "The toxic truth about sugar," which appeared in the February issue of the journal.

Responses from Ron Boswell (Government, Queensland, Australia); John L. Sievenpiper, Russell J. de Souza and David J.A. Jenkins (St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, Ontario); Christiani Jeyakumar Henry and Viren Ranawana (Clinical Nutrition Research Centre, Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences, Singapore); Saleem H. Ali (University of Vermont, Burlington, USA); and Richard C. Cottrell (World Sugar Research Organisation, London, UK) have all challenged the commentary.
