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.

Any additional comments?

This book makes it clear that although it's pretty much impossible to prove that sugar is the cause of most of our ills in society, it is most definitely the prime suspect who, if not for a few charismatic champions and reckless government policies, would have been found guilty long ago.
