The Case Against Sugar
- By: Gary Taubes
- Narrated by: Mike Chamberlain
- Length: 11 hrs and 33 mins
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.
Mike Chamberlain's style is extremely irritating

Great Book - Gary is a legend !
The research is thorough and the information as shocking as it is compelling. Let's hope it will persuade the general public that the verdict is heeded. A must read for anyone interested in living a life free of disease.
