Is Sugar Making Us Sick?

Mounting research is implicating sugar - specifically the added sugars we consume from soda and sweets - as a key contributor to numerous chronic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Join a panel of experts in nutrition and public health to discuss the role of added sugar in the obesity and diabetes epidemics, including how its risks compare to those of saturated fat, formerly the leading dietary villain. Panelists will also address topics such as the role of the beverage industry, sugar and public policy, the interaction of sugar with fat in the diet, and standards for sugar intake worldwide.

Panel: Janet King, Senior Scientist, Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute; Dr. Ronald Krausse, Senior Scientist and Dolores Jordan Endowed Chair, Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute; Dr. Kristine Madsen, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley School of Public Health; Gary Taubes, Cofounder and Senior Scientific Advisor, Nutrition Science Initiative

 Dr. John Swartzberg, Clinical Professor, Emeritus, UC Berkeley School of Public Health
