Review quote

Praise for FAT CHANCE No scientist has done more in the last fifty years to alert Americans to the potential dangers of sugar in the diet than Dr. Robert Lustig. --Gary Taubes, author of "Good Calories, Bad Calories" and "Why We Get Fat" Our eating habits are killing us. In this timely and important book, Dr. Robert Lustig presents the scientific evidence for the toxicity of sugar and the disastrous effects of modern industrial food on the hormones that control hunger, satiety, and weight. He gives recommendations for a personal solution to the problem we face and also suggests a public policy solution. "Fat Chance" is the best book I've read on the relationship between diet and health and the clearest explanation of epidemic obesity in our society. --Andrew Weil, M.D., author of "Spontaneous Happiness" and "You Can t Afford to Get Sick" "Fat Chance "is THE manifesto for our time. It reveals the real reasons we why we are a fat nation and how to cure the obesity epidemic. It getsright to the root of the problem, which is not gluttony and sloth, as the food industry, government and your neighbor would have you believe. It is because we are drowning in a sea of sugar which poisons our metabolism, shrinks our brains, and threatens our national security and global competitiveness. Every American, politician, teacher, and business leader must read this book. Our nation's future depends on it. --Mark Hyman, M.D., author of "The Blood Sugar Solution" "show more
