Sugar is poison!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sugar Blues (Mass Market Paperback)
I first read this book over 25 years ago when my father bought it home. The information it contained had a huge impact on me and lead me to giving up sugar as an additive and changing my diet by cutting out 'refined' and processed foods. The book is a narrative of a young American man (the author) who ate a typical diet of 'white' foods that slowly ruined his body and lead to a hard encounter with diebetes and the inevitable cycle of high sugar intake and increasing dosages of insulin. It then moves into his discovery of the merits of a wholefood diet and the virtual eradication of his need for insulin. His journey is far from perfect, encountering drugs along the way and detailing the impact that had on his new found health, but it had a profound impact on me at the time and continues to influence my current eating habits and has made me extremely healthy as a result. Sugar is one of the biggest poisons of the modern age and responsible for obesity and ill health the world over and I strongly recommend you read this if you care enough about yourself to do something.
