It's a prime ingredient in countless substances from cereal to soup, from cola to coffee. Consumed at the rate of one hundred pounds for every American every year, it's as addictive as nicotine — and as poisonous. It's sugar. And "Sugar Blues", inspired by the crusade of Hollywood legend Gloria Swanson, is the classic, bestselling expose that unmasks our generation's greatest medical killer and shows how a revitalizing, sugar-free diet can not only change lives, but quite possibly save them.
This book was not what I expected. Dufty masterfully presents the history of sugar production, exposing startling facts about sugar's influence on world events that never made it into our history books. How warnings about the effects processed sugar has on the human body were ruthlessly suppressed...
If you want a long and healthy life for you and your kids, this book is a must-read.
