Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mike Chamberlain

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Author Gary Taubes makes a strong and frightening case against sugar, claiming that there is nothing sweet about its links to numerous chronic diseases, which include insulin resistance, liver disease, and obesity. Narrator Mike Chamberlain flawlessly delivers these sour facts with journalistic directness. His clear narration fluidly presents the comprehensive information regarding the history of sugar use and case studies on its effects. With modulations and tonal changes he highlights the questionable claims of sugar-related industries and quotations from various sources. Chamberlain's persuasive frankness drives home the author's controversial argument that sugar use is akin to smoking cigarettes or using drugs and should be, at the very least, regarded more cautiously by consumers.
