A Review of Gary Taubes' new book, The Case Against Sugar
Sugar is everywhere. It is deeply woven into our food supply and our way of life. We use it as a preservative, a way to refresh and reward ourselves, as a “healthier” substitute for fats, to celebrate special occasions, and to show love or regard to others. It is in most breads, dry roasted peanuts, fruity yogurt, breakfast cereals, sports drinks, granola, spaghetti sauce, hot dogs, and flavored coffee drinks. If we want to avoid it, it takes effort.
