Sweet Self-Destruction: Sugar Crush by Richard P. Jacoby, DPH and Raquel Baldelomar
This no-nonsense book busts myths about the true causes of many diseases with its hard-hitting exposé on sugar and what it does to your body and mind,
Dr. Richard Jacoby, a peripheral nerve surgeon, explains what happens when we consume sugar, and how diabetes and neuropathy are connected. Jacoby busts myths about various popular diets and dieting techniques, including juicing and fat consumption and explains what we should be eating -- not only to avoid or remedy diabetes, but the numerous other sugar related diseases that lead to headaches, inflammation, nerve pain and damaged blood vessels. Jacoby also teaches readers how to make decisions about what to eat that are based on nutrition and physiological knowledge, not ones based on large organizations that seemingly have public health as a priority, but are influenced by politicians and lobbyists.
This book is for people who want to understand how sugar affects them, and actively take control of their health without simply relying on medication to "manage" symptoms (or create new ones). caused by diabetes and other sugar-related diseases.
