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.

Would you try another book written by Gary Taubes or narrated by Mike Chamberlain?

Interesting history of our approach to sugar and health risks linked to everyday consumption; an important book, very well researched.
Not too sure about the narrator though - ended up reading the kindle version instead!
