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

really informative a robust history of sugar
i read why we get fat and since reading i lost over 30 lbs since October. I through this was naturally avoiding sugar. What Gary states makes a lot of sense. The best thing to do is give ot a try. i was weaned off it after a month ans feel much better for not having it and dong miss it.
