Format: Non-Fiction


In 2002, Taubes asked in New York Times, 'What If It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?' He defended the possibility that we are starving ourselves into disease by denying plenty of animal foods. There was an immediate flood of controversy and stone throwing. But the three-time winner of Science in Society journalism awards and former Discover Magazine editor proclaims in his new book Good Calories, Bad Calories that everything we think about health today is wrong. It's a fascinating trek through bumbling bureaucracies. He makes the point that upon analysis, the studies that are cited as proof that fat causes disease actually show the opposite. It's a long, long story that basically ends with the experts finding it impossible to admit they've been wrong, costing countless lives.
