The Case Against Sugar

ABOUT THE CASE AGAINST SUGAR

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans’ history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

PRAISE FOR THE CASE AGAINST SUGAR

“Required reading not only for every Parent, but for every American.” Katie Couric

“A riveting history of ideas, a clear analysis of evidence, and an utterly persuasive argument that sugar is the new tobacco. Taubes methodically explains why sugar- not sloth, not fat- accounts for our unprecidents levels of obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease.” Gretchen Rubin
