case against sugar

Mr. Taubes will be speaking about his latest book, The Case Against Sugar which came from his 2002 New York Times Magazine cover story “What If It’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?” The Case Against Sugar is a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium. Through his research, Gary Taubes shakes up our preconceptions about diet and health and he challenges scientific studies that have been misinterpreted and prescribed as advice for the general public for years. He offers instead new ways to eat, live, and think about health based on the highest caliber of scientific research.
