Jan 14, Luffy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Such is the force behind the concept of sugar being harmful that this book embodies, that I have given up sugar instantly. This may be a fad. So, just to make sure I go on losing weight, I decided to read Pure, White, and Deadly, over and over again.
The last chapter shows a pockmarked battlefield where sugar's sacred guardians keep on belittling John Yudkin, the author. They employ sneaky tactics to relegate the author's studies to crackpot theory land. I first heard of this book from another one Such is the force behind the concept of sugar being harmful that this book embodies, that I have given up sugar instantly. I first heard of this book from another one; Fat Chance by Robert H. Fat Chance is very informative.
But though it's the successor to Yudkin's book, and has modern statistics at hand, Pure, White, and Deadly is the better book, by sheer force of the intellect. View all 12 comments. Aug 27, Liz rated it it was amazing.
I read this book in when it first came out. I wish that I had remembered it and stayed away from sugar. Now i have read it again and i recommend it to anyone who values their health.
Yudkin believed, based on research and observation, that it is sugar not fat which causes coronary artery disease. His research was ignored in favour of the big anti fat message propagated first by Ancel Keys and then by the US health organisations. Yudkin shows how Keys research was faulty. Penguin has reissue I read this book in when it first came out. Penguin has reissued the book this year although you can still find and download the pdf version.
Although aspects of Yudkin's work are outdated and the science has come a long way, the central core to his thesis - refined sugar sucrose is a poison and we should be working towards limiting it, and not increasing it, in our diets - was visionary.
Sadly, it was a cry that went unheeded, especially in the United States, where not long after this publication, we began to add exponential amounts of sugar to our diets in the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup. Thank 3. At the time of its publication, Yudkin was essentially a lone wolf and his ideas seemed so radical, despite the commonly known mal-affects such as tooth decay, no one else was crying "Poison!
Sadly, it seems unlikely that we are any closer to heeding his advice now then we were then. There are 2 claims of his I do dispute: Here, the science though still disputed by some, has generally shown otherwise. Certainly, there are other parts of his work where medical knowledge, especially regarding diabetes, has greatly improved as well as changed, since the nature of the disease itself has evolved. Yudkin died in , just as the "diabesity" crisis was visibly growing.
At the time Yudkin wrote his work, the sugar consumption in the U. The USDA now estimates that Americans now consume, on average, lbs of sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Food for thought indeed! I stumbled across Yudkin's work because of watching a medical lecture by Dr. Lustig on YouTube, who cited Yudkin, anyone interested in Yudkin's work should find it of interest. It's 1.

This is one of the best, most interesting, educational books I have read in a long time. It was out of my comfort zone. Besides teaching me a bit about sugar and nutrition, it also taught me a bit about the influences of politics. An area I have struggled to understand, and show an interest.
I have definatly reduced my sugar consumption after reading this book. Not just white sugar, but glucose fructose. I do not believe that there is 1 cause for obesity, and health issues, but too much of anyth This is one of the best, most interesting, educational books I have read in a long time.
I do not believe that there is 1 cause for obesity, and health issues, but too much of anything isn't good. This book delves into the north american diet, and the amount of sugar we consume, regularly, and how the food industry is increasing it all the time, to improve flavour. We have to reduce fat and carbohydrates. This is a very interesting book. Not to long, educational, and a great read! Smith We watch Mad Men, and see Betty dropping cigarette ash over her children, and Don lighting up the moment he swings his legs out of bed, and it all seems kind of quaint.

I wonder if in the Mad Men of the future, they'll laugh and be shocked at how we smilingly pushed sweets into the hands of children we didn't even hate. Professor Yudkin died unloved and unrecognised, defeated by the evil Ancel Keys and his "It's the fat what kills you" hypothesis, which suited the sugar industry, not least because the new healthy low-fat foods needed flavour, which comes, of course, from sugar go and look on the ingredients list sometime.
Well, it turns out that it was "It is the sugar what kills you" hypothesis that was right all along. But we knew that. Rober Lustig told us so watch Sugar the Bitter Truth: Apr 26, Krissy marked it as to-read.

The Bitter Truth http: View 1 comment. Feb 26, David rated it it was amazing. This book is incredible! John Yudkin presents an amazing case against the consumption of sugar and demonstrates quite convincingly that sugar, not fat and cholesterol, is at the root of the heart disease, obesity, and type II diabetes epidemic we are currently facing.
Good luck getting a hold of this book. It was very difficult to find. Step away from the sugar bowl now I read this as a companion piece to Robert Lustig's Fat Chance. Pure White and Deadly was originally published in the early 70s. Both books demonstrate what a clear and present danger sugar is. Lustig's is more up-to-date in that he incorporates new knowledge about our hormonal systems but both men come to a similar conclusion - we should avoid sug I read this as a companion piece to Robert Lustig's Fat Chance.
Lustig's is more up-to-date in that he incorporates new knowledge about our hormonal systems but both men come to a similar conclusion - we should avoid sugar as much as possible.
Yudkin was up against the American scientist Ancel Keys, who insisted that animal fat, not sugar, was harmful to health. The discovery in the 70s that high cholesterol in the bloodstream correlated to heart disease initially appeared to vindicate Keys, and governments in both the USA and Europe got behind Keys's "high carbohydrate - low fat diet" and since then we have had decades of indoctrination. But now it appears Yudkin was right and Keys entirely wrong. Poor Yudkin struggled so bravely against overwhelming odds - his final shocking chapter recounts the manifold instances of sabotage and bullying perpetrated against him by the food industry - it seems unfair to wonder if it was something about his style which failed to persuade originally.
He was an elite scientist as is Lustig writing for a mass audience, so tries to explain his concepts very carefully: Also, his many careful explanations tend create a meandering experience which detracts from a strong central argument. Perhaps also he was an academic captive in his ivory tower, wedded to the idea that scientific truth on its own merits would prevail over falsehood and ignorance.
Lustig is far more politically minded, and fully understands the nature of the fight against Big Sugar: Yudkin's book is interesting now from an historical perspective, and also because he fills in research around some medical conditions Lustig leaves out - but as I implied above, Lustig creates a very strong and persuasive central argument that ties sugar to the spiralling obesity and metabolic syndrome problems of North America and Europe.
Is sugar worse than fat? Should we have this in our food supply? Should we all go back to eating what our grandmother's cooked? Do the kids of today know that package food is a fairly new invention? My own kids had never seen a Brussels sprout stock or the green tops of carrots. We have moved so far away from our natural food sources that many kids are actually surprised to find a friend at school who has veggies in their lunchbox.
One child even Is sugar worse than fat? One child even asked my son, "what are you eating? Take a look in the lunchboxes of children and you'll discover a high sugar, low fiber, low nutrient meal and these children are eating this every single day! It's worse after school when their tired parents cook up what they think is a natural healthy meal from the freezer section, and adding insult to injury, rarely include a fruit and or vegetable with that meal.
This book has a lot of details that will cause non-nutritionist to zone out, but read it anyway and skip those parts. You'll still understand the book and learn why the Sugar Industry has so much power and influence over your food supply and why you cannot stop the madness simply by choosing NOT to eat it. You may also discover that artificial sweeteners are no worse for you than plain old sugar, a concept I could not grasp until now.
The reason? Again, grandma didn't put much sugar or sweetener in her cooking. Cook like grandma and stop buying food in bags.
Pull it out of the ground or off of a tree. Obviously buy what came from the earth - not all of us can have gardens and orchards. It's not an easy read, but this is a thoroughly remarkable book and one that should be at the top of the reading list for anyone with an interest in what they eat or how the food industry operates. Pure, White and Deadly aroused a furious reaction when it was first published and the sugar industry tried, with some success, to discredit Yudkin and his work, preferring to cast fat as the part of our diets that causes ill-health, obesity, heart disease, etc.
This new edition also lists some of the l It's not an easy read, but this is a thoroughly remarkable book and one that should be at the top of the reading list for anyone with an interest in what they eat or how the food industry operates. This new edition also lists some of the lengths the sugar business went to in its quest to shut him up. Yudkin was far ahead of his time. These days it is becoming increasingly clear that the villain is the white stuff.
Maybe in a few years sugar will be up there alongside tobacco. Nov 24, Marjan rated it it was amazing Shelves: This could be the most important book on nutrition I have ever read and if you plan to read only one on this subject, than look no further. Despite having a bombastic and somewhat populistic title the contents present a well written view by a researcher who spent his life exploring the effects of sucrose on our bodies.
His findings are nothing less than a cause for a serious alarm on our diets on some aspects I would still call them conservative , yet nothing much seems to happen. Sugar produce This could be the most important book on nutrition I have ever read and if you plan to read only one on this subject, than look no further.
Pure, White and Deadly by John Yudkin (ebook)
Sugar produces craving, and craving produces profits for producers. And in a system where even diseases and suffering can be turned into a profitable business, we are lucky to at least have a few books like these. Nov 21, Pcallist rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Pcallist by: This book is out of print and I had to get it via inter-library loan. It is referenced in 'Good Calories, Bad Calories'. It is a compelling read and adds much to my understanding about the perils of consuming table sugar and HFCS which wasn't available when Yudkin researched and wrote.
The information at the end of the book, of Yudkin's clashes with British "Big Sugar" are illuminating. View 2 comments. It's amazing to think that this book was first written in
