5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Penguin!, 30 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pure, White And Deadly: How sugar is killing us and what we can do to stop it (Paperback)
It's great to be one of the first to get my hands on this rare book in this new release by Penguin of a medical science classic. Being a typical Western sugarholic then I know it's going to be a tough pill to follow - especially if the pill is sugar-coated ;-/ I had a few holidays in China about ten years ago, staying for a month at a time. Upon returning I couldn't help but notice how much food in the UK is made from milk products, but also how much of it contains large amounts of sugar. My British friends who have visited America tell me they even sweeten the milk! It's hard to imagine any company doing it for innocent reasons however, when you taste some of the milkshakes here in England then you see where this is all leading to. It won't be long before the UK goes the way of the US and sweetens many more food products. The tragedy is that we all keep falling for it! So this book may be old, but it is talking about the future - and the growing obesity problems in the US and European continents. The book is prefaced with an introduction by Dr Robert Lustig MD - a self-confessed Yudkinnite. See his amazing lecture on You Tube for a detailed account of what this book is saying.
