Gary Taubes is an award-winning science journalist. He’s a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator in Health Policy Research at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health. (And, his offices must be pretty close to another health journalist based out of UC Berkeley, Michael Pollan, author of Food Rules and In Defense of Food who says this about Taubes: “I can’t think of another journalist who has had quite as profound an influence on the conversation about nutrition.”)
In this book, we take up the case against sugar as the primary suspect for ALL of the chronic diseases that are killing us.

I’m excited to share some of my favorite Ideas that I sincerely hope will open your eyes to the toxic effects of sugar on your and your family’s health so let’s jump straight in!
