Sweet Science

In a world of raging heart disease, obesity and diabetes, many scientists continue to point the finger at sugar. However, proving a single foodstuff is to blame for these chronic diseases is remarkably difficult; scientists have had to base their conclusions on long-term diet correlations, animal experiments and expert opinions.

In an attempt find some solid scientific footing, investigative journalist Gary Taubes explores several centuries of evidence in his new book, “The Case Against Sugar.”

In a review of the book, The Atlantic examines its strengths, some possible holes in Taubes’ arguments and what his case means for the field of nutrition science.
