“The Case Against Sugar” is a groundbreaking expose arguing that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium, backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives and making us very sick indeed. The author Gary Taubes, hailed as one of the best writers on nutrition, has provided a well researched, scholarly but accessible account mixing expert science and compelling story telling. He argues that the global obesity and diabetes epidemic, as well as hypertension, Alzheimer’s and even cancer; all have the likely single root cause of sugar. This book seeks to unravel the muddled, out of date and sometimes contradictory public health advice to show that sugar, rather than fat, is the villain in nutrition. It’s a revelatory read which will fundamentally change the way we eat.
