I just read Sugarettes by Dr. Scott Olson and I liked the book for two reasons. First, Sugarettes helped me identify and start to address my sugar addiction. Yes, I am a lifelong sugar addict: From fruit juice as a baby, to Frosted Flakes as a young man, to anything sweet goes as an adult. Sugarettes is a quick read and, thankfully for the non-medical reader, keeps scientific information at a coherent level of understanding. Second, and maybe more importantly, I think Dr. Olson is on to something more with Sugarettes. Dr. Olson highlights the glaring silence by government regulators and health care associations regarding sugar abuse in our society. I find it odd, in a society that longs for days gone by and the lessons of the "greatest generation," that we haven't explored our risky, unconstrained love affair with sugar and sugar substitutes. Reading Sugarettes, I'm left to wonder whether all unhealthy roads lead to sugar.

I like to read motivational books on eating healthy and was lucky enough to get this book. Dr. Olson's style of writing kept me captive as I sat and drank my coffee (with sugar.) After finishing the book instead of feeling guilty about eating sugar, I find I'm more "aware" of when I consume it. I think Dr. Olson is surely on to something when he writes about the fact that there are no "real" or "official" studies that link sugar to obesity or diabetes...similar to smoking vs. cancer (in the 50's and 60's.)

Having a grandmother who had diabetes and required insulin shots every day, I never knew what it was actually doing for her. This book cleared that up for me and explained it in such a way I actually understood without having to re-read that chapter again...meaning it was written with language I (and most non-scientists) could understand.

I'm glad I read this...and it sticks in the back of my mind when my grocery cart starts gravitating toward high-glycemic foods in the store. Great motivation for anyone who is trying to eat a more healthy diet.

Interesting but not life changing. I am a sugar addict. I bought this book because I despise smoking and the link to sugar was on the mark. However, the book is just a bit too much. Good information and I believe almost everything in it but it doesn't really give solid, workable advice on how to pull away from sugar. It basically just says stop! That doesn't work for addicts, especially when stating to also avoid all sugar substitutes. But good information included about the horrid effects of sugar on the body.

What if we started treating sugar addiction like we do nicotine, heroin or crack cocaine addiction? Do you think it would change our perspective about how we view it? You bet it would which was the intention of the author and naturopathic physician Dr. Scott Olson when he wrote the book. Making the case that sugar is as harmful to public health as any drug out there today, Olson outlines all the ins and outs of this issue to help sugar addicts overcome their problem.

Much of his advice focuses on cutting out not just the sugars that you consume, but also anything that would turn to sugar in the body. In other words, starchy carbohydrates are considered sugar by his definition as well. This is a perfect read for anyone who is following a controlled-carb nutritional approach and needs an extra boost of support in overcoming the need for sugar in their lives forever.

This a great beginners book on how and why sugar is harmful. It's definitely not a comprehensive book (no recipes or meal plans) however it accomplishes it's purpose of " ringing the alarm" on the harmful effects of sugar

I have been technical specialist of the retina for 30 years plus and have seen over and over the damage sugar has to some diabetics eyes and vision. I have studied this extensively and have come to the conclusion that the food processors in this country are the sugar devils. Think about it, they put enough sugar into cereal so the kids will eat it, then mom buys it over and over again. Sugar is put into dog and cat food for the same reason. Diabetics come from all ages of people and the pets that we all have. Ever wonder why the animals in the wild, never die from diabetes?

Sugar creates and maintains cancers to develop and grow. Want to kill any and all cancer cells in ones body, starve the body of sugar. Just about 2 weeks will do it. Like medicine, it won't work with everyone but it should for the masses.

Go vegetarian. Buy from Farmers Markets and cut out the starch, or anything white. Starch is sugar, this also means white bread.

Dr. Olson is right in saying that the body wants to heal itself. Starve yourself of sugar for 2 weeks and you will become a convert. Your sugar intake will reduce by at least 90%, but YOU HAVE TO WANT TO DO THIS. No one will hold you too it. Do this for yourself and for your family and you should live to see your grand kids grow up and start their own families.

There are other ways to fight cancer, but this is the best. It is metabolic in that the body will automatically take what you eat and treat it accordingly. Sugar in excess of 5% daily will result in poor health and a shorter life. Remember the old term, "Garbage in, garbage out". Sugar in, bad health out.

God bless you all and even the bible backs up this approach to fighting poor health.
