Don’t miss hearing from investigative journalist Gary Taubes about his New York Times bestseller The Case Against Sugar - just out in paperback. This groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé 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. Gary Taubes is an investigative science and health journalist and co-founder of the non-profit Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI.org). He is the author of Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It and Good Calories, Bad Calories. http://www.themusichall.org/calendar/event/gary_taubes

Description: In forty years, Earth’s population will reach ten billion. Can our world support that? What kind of world will it be? Those answering these urgent questions generally fall into two deeply divided groups, “Wizards” and “Prophets,” says journalist-author Charles Mann. In his new work, this bestselling, award-winning writer (1491 and 1493) offers an incisive portrait of these two groups, and the little-known twentieth-century scientists who inspired them. The Wizards follow Norman Borlaug’s belief that the solution to our most pressing problems is continual innovation; William Vogt’s mantra, embraced by the Prophets, is that we must use fewer of the earth’s resources and cut back. In this balanced, authoritative, non-polemical new work, Mann delves into these diverging viewpoints and assesses the four great challenges humanity faces in the coming decades—food, water, energy, climate change. Don’t miss hearing from Charles Mann in this unprecedented and important Innovation + Leadership event. CHARLES C. MANN, a correspondent for The Atlantic, Science, and Wired, has also written for Fortune, The New York Times, Smithsonian, Technology Review, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post, as well as the TV network HBO and the series Law & Order. http://www.themusichall.org/calendar/event/charles_c._mann
