Gary Taubes

"Gary Taubes (born April 30, 1956) is an American science writer. He is the author of Nobel Dreams (1987), Bad Science: The Short Life and Weird Times of Cold Fusion (1993), and Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007), titled The Diet Delusion (2008) in the UK and Australia. His book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It was released in December 2010. His main hypothesis is that carbohydrates stimulate the secretion of insulin, which causes the body to store fat. In December 2016, Taubes published The Case Against Sugar, which further expanded his arguments against dietary carbohydrates and sugar in particular.[citation needed]

The shocking truth about sugar, the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick indeed.

FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE CASE FOR KETO The shocking truth about sugar: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick indeed. 'Gary Taubes is the best writer on nutrition science in the world. Anyone seeking to understand the role of sugar in our diets should read this book' Ian Leslie, author of Curious Obesity and diabetes are worldwide epidemics. Evidence increasingly shows that these illnesses are linked to the other major Western diseases: hypertension, heart disease, even Alzheimer's and cancer, and that shockingly, sugar is likely the single root cause. Yet the nutritional advice we receive from public health bodies is dangerously out of date. With expert science and compelling storytelling, Gary Taubes investigates the history of nutritional science which, shaped by a handful of charismatic and misguided individuals, has for a hundred years denied the true impact of sugar on our health. He exposes the powerful influence of the food industry and delves into the science of sugar, and finds that its addictive pleasures are resulting in worldwide consumption as never experienced before, to devastating effect. The Case Against Sugar is a revelatory read which will fundamentally change the way we eat. 'Hard-hitting and important... you will find yourself looking at the packet of golden caster in your cupboard and the elderflower cordial in your fridge with new suspicion' Sunday Times
