Robert Lustig‚Äôs 90-minute YouTube video ‚ÄúSugar: The Bitter
Truth‚ÄĚ, has been viewed more than two million times. Now,
in this much anticipated book, he documents the science and
the politics that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease
over the last 30 years.
In the late 1970s when the
government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food
industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has
been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry
and driving our eating habits out of our control.
help us lose weight and recover our health, Lustig presents
personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that
regulate hunger, reward, and stress; and societal strategies
to improve the health of the next generation. Compelling,
controversial, and completely based in science, Fat
Chance debunks the widely held notion to prove ‚Äúa
calorie is NOT a calorie‚ÄĚ, and takes that science to its
logical conclusion to improve health worldwide.
