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

Fantastic book! Very informative!
Confirmation of much that I knew about sugar already but also much more that I didn't know!
