Best-Selling Author Gary Taubes to Headline Panel Discussion

What if dietary dogma in America was just plain wrong?

New York Times best-selling author Gary Taubes has been invited to headline a paradigm-shift talk and panel discussion at St. Anne’s-Belfield School entitled “The Case Against Sugar.” The panel will take place on Monday, September 26 at 7:00 PM in the Learning Village Theater.

Taubes’s challenging hypothesis is that the medical community and federal government have misinterpreted scientific data with regard to healthful eating. Taubes makes the convincing case that carbohydrates like sugar are the primary culprits responsible for heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer. A correspondent for the journal Science, Taubes is a respected authority in clinical analysis. He has won the Science in Society Journalism Award of the National Association of Science Writers three times, the only print journalist to ever do so. Click here to visit his website.
