Have you seen “Fat Head,” the documentary by Tom Naughton? Naughton wanted to disprove Morgan Spurlock’s popular “Supersize Me” theories and does so with gusto.

Naughton mentions Gary Taubes frequently. Taubes of “Good Calories, Bad Calories” fame just published another article on sugar which is … well, unsettling: Is Sugar Toxic?

coerce convince your family to do the same?
