    ITEM#: 15346784

    John Yudkin (1910-1995) was a British physiologist and nutritionist. He became internationally famous with his book Pure, White, and Deadly, first published in 1972, and was one of the first scientists to claim that sugar was a major cause of obesity and heart disease.
    The classic expose on the dangers of sugar, with a new introduction by Robert H. Lustig, the bestselling author of Fat Chance

    Scientist John Yudkin was the first to sound the alarm about the excess of sugar in the diet of modern Americans. His classic expose, Pure, White, and Deadly, clearly and engagingly describes how sugar is damaging our bodies, why we eat so much of it, and what we can do to stop. He explores the ins and out of sugar, from the different types?is brown sugar really better than white??to how it is hidden inside our everyday foods, and how it is damaging our health.

    In 1972, Yudkin was mostly ignored by the health industry and media, but the events of the last forty years have proven him spectacularly right. Yudkin’s insights are even more important and relevant now, with today’s record levels of obesity, than when they were first published. Brought up-to-date by childhood obesity expert Dr. Robert H. Lustig, this emphatic treatise on the hidden dangers of sugar is essential reading for anyone concerned about their health, the health of their children, and the wellbeing of modern society.
