Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, December 2016 - In addition to my addiction to books, I am also addicted to sugar. Ask any of my fellow editors, and they'd be able to tell you what my favorite candy is (Snickers). I almost never pass on dessert (how else are you supposed to know that your meal is over?), and I consider chocolate a major food group. Clearly, I have a problem. Now, in the thick of the holiday season, I've decided it's time to exercise some control. Enter The Case Against Sugar. Narrated by Mike Chamberlain, who has had an impressive 2016 with over 25 audiobooks to his name, The Case Against Sugar was the wake-up call I needed. Author Gary Taubes (Why We Get Fat) combines science and history in consumable fashion (pun intended), making his important message easy to digest (pun, again, intended). —Katie, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever. Obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical, society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss, and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.

Kritikerstimmen

"[Taubes] helps us understand how to make better decisions regarding sugar as individuals and as a nation." (Library Journal)

"The obesity epidemic is an ever-growing threat to the overall health of our nation. In making the case against sugar, Gary Taubes details the often insidious efforts by the sugar industry to hide how harmful it is, just as the tobacco companies once did. This is required reading for not only every parent, but every American." (Katie Couric)

"This deeply researched, well-reasoned exploration of the history and biology of sugar would convince any supreme court of nutrition that it is sugar, not fat, that should be indicted and limited. Doctors, scientists, policymakers, and concerned eaters would do well to heed Gary Taubes's advice." (Mark Hyman, M.D., author of The Blood Sugar Solution)

    "True But Useless"

    Eine völlig uninspirierende Aneinanderreihung unwichtiger Details und dazu dann noch Wiederholung über Wiederholung – 1 Stunde als Hörbuch hätte völlig ausgereicht, um das, was der Autor zu sagen hat, mitzuteilen.
