More than two decades ago Nancy Appleton's Lick the Sugar Habit exposed the health dangers of America's high-sugar diet.
Now, in Suicide by Sugar, Appleton along with journalist G.N. Jacobs presents a broader view of the problems caused by our favorite ingredient. Through a collection of articles, the authors offer startling facts linking a range of disorders from dementia and hypoglycemia to obesity and cancer to our growing addiction to sugar. Rounding out the book they present a sound diet plan that leads the way to good health along with a number of recipes for sweet, easy-to-prepare and delectable dishes all made without sugar or fruit.
