Sugar Daddies Bought Off Sugar Researchers

To be honest, the older I get, I find that fewer and fewer things actually surprise me anymore. Oh, I still can get angry or disgusted, but not really surprised.

To wit, the revelation that researchers were "bought off" by the sugar industry. 
Back in the 1960s, a sugar industry executive wrote fat checks to a group of Harvard researchers so that they’d downplay the links between sugar and heart disease in a prominent medical journal—and the researchers did it, according to historical documents reported Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
