ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sugar, a common ingredient in most pantries, is starting to be looked at more like a narcotic, which begs the question: should refined sugar be classified as a drug? Dr. Jeffery Eisenberg uncovers the science, history, research, and politics behind the hard-to-swallow truth in his new book, Suckered.
Today, 80% of items in grocery stores have added sugar, explaining why it has become a problem now more than ever. Saturating our diets, the over consumption of sugar has led to startling rates of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and more, revealing the real killer within our kitchen.
The proof is in the research and the outcome is overwhelming. With studies showing how rats prefer Oreos to cocaine, Dr. Eisenberg shows us why and how sugar alters our body and brain. Through treating patients by first examining their diet, he eventually authored Suckered as a way to bring about more awareness to his patients and the public. Sugar is toxic and at the heart of this terrible, self-induced health epidemic we're facing.
"I will recommend this book to my patients! It tells the story that the doctor can't say in brief office visits…this book is a life saver." --Dr. Barbara Kircher FACC, MD
"Accessible to readers of all backgrounds, Suckered speaks to individuals struggling to improve their own lifestyle, parents trying to raise health-conscious children, and public policymakers concerned about America's health woes. Highly recommended." --Andrea Kay, Midwest Book Review
