Sugar and its effects on our health
March 18, 2014
Guests: Robert Lustig and Frank HuÂ
Is a calorie just a calorie? This controversial question continues in the crowded works of diet and health books, and DR. ROBERT LUSTIG, pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, San Francisco, says itâ€™s important to understand the biochemistry of metabolism when eating sugar. Heâ€™s returning to Radio Times with a follow-up cookbook to his 2012 manifesto, Fat Chance: Beating The Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease. Weâ€™ll also be joined by DR. FRANK HU, a Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, whoâ€™ll discuss sugar consumption and its effects on health.
