Citing decades of scientific research, Taubes meticulously makes the case that sugar causes a host of diseases from obesity and diabetes to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's. Obesity and diabetes are pandemic around the world, with more than half a billion people considered obese, including one in three Americans.
