America’s’ sweet-laden diet is helping drive obesity and chronic metabolic disease. Join Dr. Robert Lustig, noted pediatrician, neuroendocrinologist and author, as he explores the science behind this phenomenon, as laid out in his new book, Fat Chance. Lustig also addresses America’s fructose addiction as an outgrowth of bad policies and a bad environment. His research reveals how food industry practices lay the groundwork for overconsumption of fructose, how government policy first enabled them, and then more recently turned a blind eye as sugar politics became charged.
