Fat chance : beating the odds against sugar, processed food, obesity, and disease

Fat chance : beating the odds against sugar, processed food, obesity, and disease
Author(s): 
Robert H Lustig
Description: 
Robert Lustig documents the science and the politics that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease over the last 30 years. In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control. To help us lose weight and recover our health, Lustig presents personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress; and societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation.--Excerpted from publisher
