Pure, White and Deadly

Pure, White and Deadly: A new/old book I’ll be reading

Pure, White and Deadly by John Yudkin was originally published in 1972 and talks about the dangers of sugar and the effects it has on metabolism.

I just received my copy today and will start reading it soon (right after I finish reading Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes.

It hasn’t been re-printed in the US yet and as such I had to order it from a UK publisher, but I’m excited because I didn’t think I would ever be able to read it due to hardcover copies going for almost $300 and an original printing is in the 1000’s for buying. Truthfully, I don’t expect a US publisher to pick it up because they’d likely get massive pushback from the sugar industry.
