Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuro-endocrinologist, has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science. Throughout his forty-plus year career, The New York Times bestselling author of Fat Chance has been dedicated to treating and preventing childhood obesity and diabetes. With his new book, METABOLICAL: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine, he exposes the truth, both scientifically and politically, underlying the current global pandemic of diet-related diseases.
In his previous work, The Hacking of the American Mind, Dr. Lustig makes very clear, how the processed food industry has hacked our bodies and minds to pursue pleasure over happiness, fueling widespread addiction and depression. In METABOLICAL, he addresses nutrition, food science, and global health, and explains how by focusing on real food we can reverse chronic disease and promote longevity. For the first time, all strands of this pandemic — the medical, the economic, and the environmental — are pulled together into one clear narrative.
