Publisher's Summary

More than 40 years before Gary Taubes published The Case Against Sugar, John Yudkin published his now-classic exposé on the dangers of sugar - now with a new introduction by Robert H. Lustig, the best-selling author of Fat Chance.

Scientist John Yudkin was the first to sound the alarm about the excess of sugar in the diet of modern Americans. His classic exposé, Pure, White, and Deadly, clearly and engagingly describes how sugar is damaging our bodies, why we eat so much of it, and what we can do to stop. He explores the ins and outs of sugar, from the different types - is brown sugar really better than white? - to how it is hidden inside our everyday foods and how it is harming our health.

In 1972, Yudkin was mostly ignored by the health industry and media, but the events of the last 40 years have proven him spectacularly right. Yudkin’s insights are even more important and relevant now, with today’s record levels of obesity, than when they were first published. Brought up-to-date by childhood obesity expert Dr. Robert H. Lustig, this emphatic treatise on the hidden dangers of sugar is essential reading for anyone concerned about their health, the health of their children, and the well-being of modern society.

Very Informative

It’s eye opening to know that this information has been available for over 50 years but has been hidden from the public, while we slowly kill ourselves eating high caloric over sweetened foods.

A Real Lifesaver and Factual<br /> <br /><br />

I skipped this book at first because I did not care for the narrator's English accent, but I came back around and wow this John Yudkin and all these facts Through Out The Years of sugar, well suddenly I saw a clear picture of Life today that I am swallowed up by and my thinking. I am also trying to step out of the box of our diets and see the truth. Well, John Yudkin did it for me, he opened my eyes wide open. I now look at all the products before I put them in my mouth I had no idea that it was in literally everything.....it has been so easy to change my diet and my sugar consumption is now down to about 10% - to 15% found in processed foods. I wish you all the best of luck I have studied and listened to so many everything's on sugar in order to stop eating it well now I HAVE!!!
