Gary Taubes - The Case Against Sugar

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 14, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In his fifth book, Taubes, an award-winning science writer and senior scientific advisor to the Nutrition Science Initiative, which he co-founded, makes the case that sugar is the new tobacco. Like tobacco, sugar is widely used, backed by powerful corporations, vigorously advertised, and extremely dangerous. It’s been implicated in the global rise of obesity and attendant ills, such as diabetes and the fatty liver disease that afflicts some 10% of American children. Putting today’s high consumption of sugar into perspective, Taubes investigates the history of Americans’ use of this sweetener and the development of high fructose corn syrup, and lays out the latest medical research to illuminate how sugar acts on the body.
