When the Sugar Police Go Marching InSunday, July 24, 2011
My newest article was published on LewRockwell.com this weekend: “When the Sugar Police Go Marching In.” I wrote this in response to Dr. Robert Lustig’s call for a massive intervention program to deter sugar use in America.
I received an amazing amount of emails from some really amazing people. I spent nine hours on a Sunday catching up on the avalanche of email, tweets, discourse, and whatnot. It turns out that Dr. Richard Feinman has his own anemic response which I have posted below. I will be attending the Ancestral Health Conference at UCLA next week, and both Feinman and Lustig will be there as guest speakers. Gary Taubes will also be there, and that is interesting because he and Lustig apparently had a falling out in recent months. Taubes and Lustig were going to do a book together, as co-authors, and that project was dropped like a hot potato several months ago. I am speculating that falling out was due to Lustig’s move toward an interventionist public policy.
