Book Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of Fat Chance explains the eight pathologies that underlie all chronic disease, documents how processed food has impacted them to ruin our health, economy, and environment over the past 50 years, and proposes an urgent manifesto and strategy to cure both us and the planet.

You can't solve a problem if you don't know what the problem is. One of Lustig's singular gifts as a communicator is his ability to connect the dots for the general reader, in order to unpack the scientific data and concepts behind his arguments, as he tells the real story of food and the story of real food.

Metabolical weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them:

  • Processed food Read More chevron_right

   Well written, highly researched
I recommend this book if you desire to understand how body systems work and you are on a quest for health. Robert lustig has a way of turning science into a narrative that connects with our experiences of the world, and he reveals how the overwhelming public and private systems keep us ignorant and compliant.
