When I was 26 I went to an endocrinologist and asked him to please draw my insulin and sugar levels in a 5 hour glucose test because I thought something was way wrong with how my body processed foods. He would not draw the insulin levels. The 5 hour glucose test put me through symptoms I had experienced for years and years. He told me it was all in my head. I kept fighting and struggling. I have wanted to donate my body to the study of this because I know it is a problem. I am over 50 years old now and somehow have not gotten morbidly obese but have lived through the hell of sugar. Dr. Lustig is preaching my life experiences with foods. Thank you. I would love to travel to hear him talk. Please keep me informed. Thank you Dr. Lustig.

As a vascular surgeon, my team and I deal with the end stages effects of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, tobacco abuse and the devastating systemic impact of diabetes and obesity. Metabolic syndrome is creating a national healthcare “mortgage” that we all pay for – both in loss of quality of life, decreasing life expectancy, and personal, public, small buisness, large institution, government financing/expenses. The only “winners” are those financially benefiting from the management of this epidemic.
Dr. Lustig’s book Fat Chance and his medical school lecture Sugar the Bitter Truth, are passionate, selfless pleas for education, enlightenment and engagement by health care professionals, the patients we serve, community leaders and policy makers – to recognize sugar and fructose for the public health issue that it truly is. His scientific, evidence based approach, without a personal agenda (he is not selling or advocating health care products/fixes/diets) will be recognized as a “game changer” built upon the foundation of countless others that have brought the issue forward – the timing now is different. We face a challenge of magnitude not previously experienced in our National History – a “Manhatten Project” approach with the tearing down of verboten walls and barriers will be needed to preserve the American healthcare outcomes that we expect. Dr. Lustig has set the agenda for this “Manhatten Project” thru the publication of Fat Chance – each of us, in all of our capacities, are required to be a team memeber for project success. And the best thing – it is a true win-win – most of all for our children and future generations. Read the book, take personal action, and share the plan.
