If Americans would read this book and take it seriously, that would be the end of our modern food processing industry as we know it, especially the cereal industry. It would also quite possibly end our epidemic of diabetes and other debilitating diseases, IMHO.
The only reason our food processors use sugar as their main "filler" ingredient is because they can't get away with using saw dust or horse dung (not yet, anyway). The FDA has been AWOL on this for a long time, proving we have the best Congressmen that money can buy. They are supposed to oversee these agencies, but were long ago bought off by the lobbies.
My grandmother gave me some very good advice one time. When you go into a supermarket to shop, stick to the walls. You'll stay far healthier that way. "Sugar Blues" explains why.

Every author I have read who writes about sugar comes across to me as a little paranoid, but after reading their books they have every reason to be. White sugar is probably much more nefarious then most of us imagine. Whatever it is, I am certainly treading on a different ground when I shop\hunt for food.
Some good things about Sugar Blues is there is some quick really simple recipes. There also is a section on how government and industry always seem to work together for their OWN interest and not yours. Caveat emptor.... always! Never forget that and use your common sense.
He also warns that doctors are not your friends. I believe that to be quite true. They are on another paradigm and pity the fool that neglects his health by his bad eating habits and ends up in their care. Read this book and you could avoid being another "white stuff" casualty. I mean doctors do wear white coats don't they?
In other areas the author pushed it a little too hard in my opinion when he said a lot of "unexplainable [car] accidents" in which "millions of American drivers" may be driving under the influence or effect of sugar drowsiness (i.e. hypoglycemia due to hyperinsulin) when driving after a meal, especially after eating restaurant meals which is loaded with sugar. But who knows, it could be true and never has been investigated. Refined sugar is in nearly everything we eat nowadays.
His decrying of sugar is similiar to Nancy Appleton's book, but I wouldn't take both of what they say lightly. The bottom line to me is another "white" food to avoid. That is; white sugar; white flour; white rice; white salt; and white milk (non-raw). All of these foods face extreme processing to lengthen their shelf life, but may end up shorting yours.

This informative and fearless book reveals how the government has strived for years to keep Americans ignorant about white sugar in the name of profit.
The book was effective because it was not pushy. Dufty gives us a history of refined or white sugar. He reveals that many "harmless looking" foods we eat today are not food at all, and are killing the American people! he does not give his readers much advice until he has properly informed them. Amazing book, I have already recommended it.

I am not usually a big fan of non-fiction, self help type books, but I could not put this one down. What I liked most was the unique approach of this book. Rather than alot of abstract opinions, this is more of a history of the evolution of refined sugar and the effect it has had on humanity. The author sited case after case of illness and disease due to the intake of sugar, but in an easy to read and very interesting format. Even if you are not ready to make major changes in your life or diet, I would recommend reading this book. It's an eye opening experience!

For anyone that suspects that health data is corrupt in the US, this book provides ample evidence. I have concluded for some time that truth in food advertising is an oxymoron. Most Journalists are corrupted by the missinformation spread by large companies. Food processing companies for some time have been trying to trick us into eating factory produced food, if the food is not processed, they don't make money because they cannot add value. They have been supresing data and research that concludes that we should eat less processed food. This book covers both sugar and wheat flour, the two most used and abused ingriedients in the US food supply. The US FDA for some unknown reason, not covered in this book is party to this ongoing sham. This author supports his hypothesis with historical facts. The book is written in a very entertaining and readable fasion. Any European who has visited the US can attest to the over sweetened products here. Likewise the bread is tasteless and empty of texture, but full of highly processed grains, sugar and fats. This book explains why. Here's a real life example of what the author attempts to illustrate. I subscribe to Prevention magazine which is a very good source of health and nutrition information. This months copy, Feb 2001, has a full page add by America's peanut farmers showing two slices of white bread, both covered with peanut butter, the caption reads, more or less, 'peanuts are a good source of the B vitamin, also known as folic acid...consuming sufficient amounts of folic acid...may help prevent neural tube birth defects.' - This is a scare tactic! The food combination offered has huge quantities of the antinutrients sugar and white flour and plenty of vegetable fat but only a tiny amount of peanuts.Read more ›
