Future of Health: Gary Taubes: 'Why We Get Fat'
There's a host of fast-accruing science around obesity, and in his new work, Why We Get Fat, Gary Taubes helps separate the bad from the good. In his earlier bestseller Good Calories, Bad Calories, Taubes argues that certain kinds of carbohydrates have led to our obesity epidemic; he also addresses the most damaging nutritional science of the last century (the "calories-in, calories-out" model), the good science we've ignored (insulin's regulation of fat tissue), and lands with a set of easy-to-follow dietary recommendations. Presented by Town Hall's Future of Health Lecture Series with University Book Store. Series sponsored by Bastyr University and PCC Natural Markets. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
