Freedom from Sugar


Toxic, addictive, abused, everywhere. This week’s guest—Dr. Robert Lustig, one of our nation’s top endocrinologists—explains the hard facts about the impact of sugar, high fructose corn syrup and yes, even fruit juice on the liver, heart and waistline.

Dr. Lustig shares the science showing, “Fructose is as toxic as ethanol…without the buzz.” And explains that through processing, “God made fructose hard to get, man made it easy.” Because of this, our entire food supply is loaded with the stuff he calls poison. He goes on to share the recommendations for you and your kids.

Learn the difference between fructose and sucrose, why no amount of exercise will take off the pounds and why thin folks are as at-risk as the overweight. In short, Fructose is the greatest single culprit resulting in all the diseases we call metabolic syndrome—heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes.

Robert H. Lustig MD is a professor of Clinical Pediatrics, in the Division of Endocrinology and Director of the Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health (WATCH) Program at UCSF. He graduated from MIT, and received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. Dr. Lustig has authored over 85 research articles and 45 chapters and is the Editor of the volume “Obesity before birth: maternal and prenatal effects on the offspring.
