L'influence de l'industrie du sucre dans la recherche en santé

Abstract : The WHO (World Health Organisation) considers excessive sugar consumption as a risk factor for the four main non-transmittable diseases (cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and respiratory diseases). However, sugar consumption across the world is far from decreasing. This work will first expose the mechanisms of sugar consumption and the pathologies linked with an excessive one. Industrials who commercialise products of high sugar level have little interest in public health policies advocating for a healthier diet. We can safely ask ourselves: do they have an influence on medical scientific research? To find out a potential link between the sugar industry and scientific research, a systematic review of the literature has been carried out on articles linking dietary sugars consumption to the apparition, maintaining or development of cardiovascular pathologies. Acknowledgement, declared conflicts of interest and the authors’ affiliations have been reviewed to identify a food industry input. This has later been compared with the nature of the results of each study. This study confirms a real influence of the food industry on medical scientific publications. On the 27 reviewed articles, 9 declared conflicts of interest with the food industry. Articles who declared conflicts of interests with the food industry show results minimising the negative impact of dietary sugars on health and more precisely on the apparition, maintaining or development of cardiovascular pathologies.
