This should be read by everyone, and I suspect will be cited by many as being one of a body of voices which warned the food industry that it should have got its house in order, in the same way as the tabacco industry refused to acknowledge the harm that smoking caused until far too late.
I was thinking of giving this only four stars as it is a polemic targeting the food industry, with David Gillespie as an informed and intelligent reader accumulating information from a variety of scientific sources. The advantage of this is that it provides an incredibly clear and approachable analysis of current thinking. This disadvantage is that it offers no balance, and I was left to search the net to see what others were saying and whether there was another view, particularly from scientists, on this issue. However, I believe the object of this book is to open the debate with an undiluted message to as broad an audience as possible - and it certainly achieves this. It is up to us the reader to debate whether or not we agree with all that it says.
I don't think one can read this book and not take on board its underlying and powerful message about fructose, and I would challenge anyone who gets to the end of the book not to have modified or, more likely, radically changed their eating habits by cutting out fructose.
