Author Gary Taubes powerfully condemns sugar in his latest book, The Case Against Sugar. In introducing the book his website states:
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.
Taubes excoriates traditional thinking on nutrition writing “Thinking of obesity as an energy-balance disorder is as meaningless as calling poverty a money-balance problem.”
He has taken his fight to social media as well, recently pouncing on a tweet by Harvard professor Jerome Groopman. Taubes ripped Groopman for supporting the same experts that have watched diabetes and obesity to soar to all-time highs.
