Molasses and so-called raw-sugar is still sugar. You can't claim that because refined white sugar is a recent invention that MUST mean molasses is healthy and then completely ignore the fact that people ate far less of BOTH refined sugar and molasses a century ago.

India may have been eating sugar earlier than Europe, but they were definitely not eating POUNDS and POUNDS of it per capita like we do now. So your claim that India somehow avoided the effects of sugar overconsumption is disingenuous.

High fructose corn syrup is 55% fructose and 45% glucose, rather than 50/50 for table sugar. Lots of people like demonizing HFCS but the reality is that it's close enough to refined white sugar that they might as well be the same. People today eat far too much of both.

Molasses is 75% sugar, composed of glucose and fructose in mostly equal amounts. But by all means, if you want to keep justifying to yourself that because you stick to a product that's only 75% sugar instead of 100% you won't experience the health consequences of over-consumption, that's none of my business.

I can only point out how ridiculous your beliefs are.
