John Yudkin and Robert Lustig, the men who tried to warn us
In 1972, a British scientist sounded the alarm that sugar – and not fat – was the greatest danger to our health. But his findings were ridiculed and his reputation ruined. How did the world’s top nutrition scientists get it so wrong for so long?
Another reviewer from the TLC Book Tour who speaks from personal experience as someone who knows the bad things that sugar can do to your body.
I have to be honest, sugar is substance I have an almost impossibly hard time ignoring. It’s been a silent companion through good times and bad times; a silent companion I thought could hurt only my waistline even as I became diabetic. The truth however is that the price of sugar is perhaps the highest any enemy could ever rob you of; your health, your happiness and unless you take control of it, your life. If you are serious about your health, suffer from diabetes or pre-diabetes, or suffer from a handful of other serious ailments, I can’t stress the importance of reading Dr. Jacoby’s Sugar Crush. Enlightening, liberating and at the same time frightening, this is a book I desperately needed to read.
