#433 The Case Against Sugar: Gary Taubes Portsmouth Music Hall Loft Event Portsmouth Music Hall Loft 01/25 7:00 pm 01/25 8:30 pm 6
Sign up for a free ticket to the event below. Your ticket will be at will call the night of the event. Spots are limited to 10 Graduate Students. Sign up today!
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.
