A New York Times Bestseller

This groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé 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. With his signature command of science and straight talk, Taubes provides the perspective needed to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.
