We’ve heard about the dangers of eating too much fat or salt. But there has never been a warning about sugar on our food labels - despite emerging research that suggests the sweet stuff is making more of us fat and sick. Gillian Findlay reveals ‘The Secrets of Sugar’ in the fifth estate’s season premiere.  Watch it Friday October 4th at 9 pm on CBC-TV.

Canada's premier investigative series. Friday at 9 PM on CBC Television.
Introduction
For more than three decades, the fifth estate has been Canada's premier investigative documentary program, acquainting viewers with a dazzling parade of political leaders, shady characters and ordinary people whose lives were touched by triumph or tragedy. The tradition of provocative and courageous journalism which began with Adrienne Clarkson, Warner Troyer and Peter Reilly on September 16, 1975 continues unabated with our current team of Linden MacIntyre, Bob McKeown, Gillian Findlay and Mark Kelley.
