From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat comes the New York Times bestseller, THE CASE AGAINST SUGAR, a groundbreaking, eye-opening expose that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.
"If you ever doubted that sugar is the root cause of our obesity, diabetes, and heart disease epidemic, then look no further than this book. Doctors, policy makers, and concerned eaters would do well to heed Taubes's advice."
-Mark Hyman, M.D., author of Eat Fat, Get Thin and The Blood Sugar Solution
"I am grateful beyond words for Gary Taubes's courageous and meticulous documentation of the health dangers of sugar. The information in this book, if you apply it, will quite literally save your life."
-Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
