About The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes: In his New York Times-bestseller, journalist Gary Taubes reveals how sugar became a staple in our diet and how it may be the biggest threat to our health since tobacco. Citing decades of scientific research, Taubes meticulously makes the case that sugar causes a host of diseases from obesity and diabetes to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's. Obesity and diabetes are pandemic around the world, with more than half a billion people considered obese, including one in three Americans. With more and more American adults being diagnosed with diabetes, the once uncommon disease has followed the spread of the sugar-rich Western diet around the globe. Tracing the history of sugar; detailing studies on how it can lead to weight gain and other medical problems; and chronicling the lengths to which the powerful sugar industry has gone to hide this information, Taubes reveals traditional advice recommending a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet is wrong-it's sugar we should be looking out for. The summary and analysis in this eBook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
