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.

Definitely worth reading. Is sugar really giving you anything but a quick fix. Knowing whether one's health improves without sugar in the diet is worth investigating.
