    This groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick. With his signature command of science and straight talk, Taubes provides the perspective needed to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

      "The Case Against Sugar" by Gary Taubes asks us to question ourselves with "is sugar a poison?" and "is a calorie just a calorie?" and "is sugar a drug?" and let me say, it does so quite elegantly. The case against sugar is compelling and IMHO conclusive - sugar and carb overconsumption underpins ALL the major Western Diseases - diabetes, gout, heart disease, alzheimers, hypertension, cancer - that is a very bold statement with massive implications for our society. The good news is that those implications are good if you read this and /5().

    More than 40 years before Gary Taubes published The Case Against Sugar, John Yudkin published his now-classic exposé on the dangers of sugar - now with a new introduction by Robert H. Lustig, the best-selling author of Fat Chance.   The new Gary Taubes book: The Case Against Sugar April 12 by Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, MD in Book, Gary Taubes, Sugar/fructose Gary Taubes is one of the true pioneers of the low-carb movement of the last two decades.

      The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(K).   The Case Against Sugar takes us through the fascinating history of centuries-ago medicine, when none of the aforementioned confounders researchers contend with today were a factor. Some of this nutritional archaeology is a revisiting of things Taubes covered in GCBC, but it’s been several years since I read that, so it felt new to me.
