5.0 out of 5 stars pure white and deadly, 16 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Pure, White and Deadly: The new facts about the sugar you eat as a cause of heart disease, diabetes and other killers in this completely revised and updated edition (Hardcover)
I first read this book when I was a teenager and im now 57yrs, it influenced my whole thinking about what we actually
put in our mouths, and was seen as quite radical. My copy went missing many years ago due the the fact I was so enthusiastic
about it, I lent it out and never got it back from someone!!
If it is published again, I will certainly buy another copy and recommend it to anyone who cares about their health.

I am just starting to read this book after I managed to get hold of an electronic version. The last chapter is truly an eyeopener, as Yudkin divulges all the incredibly immoral, untruthful and downright criminal anticts of various arms of the sugar industry, which were aimed at discrediting his work, and doing their utmost to resist this book being published. And this was all happening in the 70's and 80's. Now I would think the sugar industry are quite capable of burying anything they fancy - so don't expect to see this book in print anytime soon. There is a copy out there as a pdf, which is available for free if you are lucky - but I had to try several dead links before any worked - you can be sure the sugar industry PR guys are hard at work then!

I don't think Amazon would appreciate me posting links to possibly unlicensed copies, but I got mine from bayfiles dot com.

It's shocking that this information has been known since the early 70's. This book was brought to my attention after it was mentioned on the BBC documentary called "The men who made us fat". I have now given up sugar completely, although it's probably hidden in a few foods that I eat, without me even realising. I guess most of us have been sugar addicts from a very young age. I wish I had found this information much earlier in life, but I am still grateful that I have found it now. My family feel that I'm over reacting about it all and that there are conflicting studies from most scientists, and they just need to sell some books. However, I find the evidence quite compelling and I think I'll stick with the wisdom of John Yudkin.

There will always be conflicting information, but it's not hard to see that John Yudikin was a true scientist, trying to do the right thing despite the consequences. Then when you look at the studies that contradict him, its not hard to see where their motivation comes from. These people are not concerned with the truth, only their profit margins. It has to be a judgement call, but sadly many people lack the ability to see through the blatent propaganda.
