In his New York Times–bestseller, journalist Gary Taubes reveals how sugar became a staple in our diet and how it may be the biggest threat to our health since tobacco. Citing decades of scientific research, Taubes meticulously makes the case that sugar causes a host of diseases from obesity and diabetes to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
Obesity and diabetes are pandemic around the world, with more than half a billion people considered obese, including one in three Americans. With more and more American adults getting diagnosed with diabetes, the once uncommon disease has followed the spread of the sugar-rich Western diet around the globe.
Tracing the history of sugar; detailing studies on how it can lead to weight gain and other medical problems; and chronicling the lengths to which the powerful sugar industry has gone to hide this information, Taubes reveals traditional advice recommending a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet is wrong—it’s sugar we should be looking out for.
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

Sugar activates the same pleasure centers in our brains as cocaine and heroin, but because it doesn’t cause the type of destructive behavior seen in alcoholics and drug users, we haven’t sought to study it as a drug.

As with drugs, we become habituated to sugar in that the more we consume, the more we feel we need it.
