A recent article in the Guardian makes me very glad we have avoided processed sugar, generally fructose, so much.

This is irrelevant.
Glycemic index measures the rise in blood glucose, not blood sucrose!
Glycemic index is not the issue - here's why:
Here is why sucrose is so nasty and why the idea that something is safe, offering positive health benefits even, based on eroneous science is so dangerous.
