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.

This is an audio book I could not 'put down'. It told me all about sugar I ever wanted to know and asked questions beyond the trodden path. Great narration too, which made the content alive and easy to listen to. Thank you for this amazing research and for turning it into this excellent audio book.
