I’m not exactly sure how I learned about Sugar Blues. If I remember correctly, it was casually mentioned in a youtube clip from a natural dietician and herbalist that I respect. It caught my attention because he mentioned that the book was over 30 years old but was still one of the most complete writings on the history and current effects of sugar that existed. It also caught my attention because as I get older I start to really understand the gravity of what diabetes is and what it has done to a lot of my family. Diabetes has done so much damage that I feel compelled to gain a better personal understanding of the circumstances and factors that contribute to it and process all the information (and misinformation) that I have been given about it thus far. At the root of all of this confusion is one thing – sugar.
