Dr. Robert Lustig on Sugar, Fat, and Obesity

Monday, September 02, 2013

Dr. Robert Lustig documents the science and the politics that has led to the growthof chronic disease over the last 30 years. In the late 1970s the government mandated that we limit fat in our food, and the food industry responded by putting more sugar in. Dr. Lustig argues that the result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control. In Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease he presents strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress, and suggests ways to improve the health of the next generation.
