Book Review : The Case Against Sugar

“The Case Against Sugar” is written by Gary Taubes. I have listened to an audio version of this book. It discuss in length the modern western diet, history of sugar and its role in the modern diet. The author discusses on the ill-effects of sugar in the tobacco industry, association with the various other human diseases like cancer, diabetes, obesity, etc. He accounts various studies to support his theory, advertisement and politics has supported sugar industry.

Rating: 3/5. The topic is interesting in many respect, but the book seems to have stretched on topic of sugar by associating it with lot of diseases. The discussion on the later topics not seem so convincing.
