More About the Author
He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins). With such a lot of extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat.
He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself.
His first book, Sweet Poison, published in 2008 is widely credited with starting the current Australian wave of anti-sugar sentiment. His most recent book, Toxic Oil, takes the arguments in Sweet Poison and extends them to the widespread use of seed oils in the modern diet.
In his next book, Free Schools, David applies his investigative skills to solving one of the other great problems every parent knows well - how to choose the best school for their kids.

I gave up sugar before, switched to soya instead of milk because it was lower in sugar, gave up loads of things I didn't have to, drank diet coke instead. Ate dried fruit. So basically got it all wrong. So glad I read this and got the facts this time. Like most people I bought this to loose weight, but the health concerns raised outweigh the weight loss. I am only a week in and lost 7lbs, but better than that it has been so easy. Don't hesitate buy this, it will change how you see sweet foods!!
I'm a British GP and have been advising about low fat, forgetting that the surplus sugars turn into fat, and are more responsible for the fatty acids than actual fat intact!
We have enormous power as the general public, and their industries all depend on our money ....we can vote with our purses! Do t let them dope us anymore ....please stop the soft drinks, and diet drinks which are equally dangerous.
We can do anything if we combine our powers and SAY NO MORE!! Make your money in another way...we're not going to be fat anymore and take the blame for it. ENOUGH!!
We'll done David.
