Suicide by Sugar
Suicide by Sugar by Nancy Appleton, Ph.D
A STARTLING LOOK AT OUR NO. 1 NATIONAL ADDICTION
It is a dangerous, addictive white powder that can be found in abundance throughout this country. It is not illegal. In fact, it is available in or near playgrounds, schools, workplaces, homes and vacation parks. It is in practically everything we eat and drink, and once we are hooked on it, the cravings can be overwhelming. This substance of abuse is sugar.
"Suicide by Sugar" begins with the story of Dr. Appeton's battle with her own sugar addiction. Next, the author examines all the frightening (and unknown) things that can go wrong when people consume too much sugar- from increased susceptibility to disease to imbalanced body chemistry. A must read book for anyone who suffers from sugar cravings or who wants to improve their health
