Why we get fat – and the case against sugar

Why do we get fat – and what can we do about it? Conventional wisdom tells us that it’s all about eating less and running more. The problem is that this seldom works well.

In this talk Taubes discusses his controversial theories and the criticism. Why do we get fat?
