Highly recommended by UCSF professor,
This review is from: Pure, White and Deadly: Problem of Sugar: The new facts about the sugar you eat as a cause of heart disease, diabetes and other killers (Health Library) (Paperback)
This book is very highly regarded by Robert H Lustig, M.D., a professor working in the UCSF Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism. Lustig is recognized by Dr. Joseph Mercola (famous for his website [..]) as being an expert on the subject of sugar (fructose) consumption and the consequences of it. The University of California has released (for educational and noncommercial uses) a video titled Sugar: The Bitter Truth, where Robert Lustig delivers a presentation in which he claims to demonstrate that fructose is a poison. In this presentation, Lustig mentions the book Pure, white and deadly by John Yudkin and his appreciation for it. Lustig describes himself as a "Yudkin acolyte" and says that "every single thing this guy (Yudkin) has said has come to pass. It's astounding. I am in awe of this guy." This video is freely viewable in its entirety on YouTube at [..]

Mercola is not a credible source. While I think highly of Professor Lustig and applaud his courage in speaking out, Mercola is a disgrace who will say anything to peddle his supplements. Those who listen to Mercola not only harm themselves, but even harm others by not vaccinating their children.

If this book Pure White and Deadly was a prank; you could buy it and decide for your self. Again the press is suppressed. Here on Amazon there are a very few left, however $219.00 and $533.00 is the cost of a used book on not very much data. Must be that the data is true and steps on the wrong toes. Consider: Do you want LIVE viruses given to your child, not me. I you just knew all the untested and dangerous stuff that are in vaccinations, you might think twice. Apparently, some just brush over Dr. Mercolas' information and do not really research his findings. Trust the FDA? Sugar and artificial sweeteners are killers, just slow killers, however killers nun the less. All the fast food establishments serve damaging foods, empty calories, poor nutrition. The USA is the most Obese country on the planet; why is that? Is the USDA or the FDA helping out on this? Money and big business is in control. This is a silent war that we are loosing, kill us with our own hand and fork!

This book is available at some libraries. Ask your librarian to borrow it for you through interlibrary loan.

To Tennyson: I think you should do some more research on the vaccination subject, as there is plenty additional material available on the internet that shows the dangers of vaccination in children...

I am getting a copy of this book. I will scan it into the computer and create a PDF file of it. That way I can give it away. I want people to have this information. I will email anyone a copy once I get it. Let me know an email address and I will send it to you when I have it ready.

how long until you have it ready? $500+ for a used book is a hard sell.
