Featuring: Nigel Latta, Dr. Robert Lustig

Sugar! What’s not to like? But what if you were told sugar is the big contributor of a worldwide explosion in obesity, diabetes, and something called "metabolic syndrome"? What if you discovered sugar is addictive? And what if you discovered that the sweet stuff is added to way more food products than you ever imagined?

Nigel Latta embarks on a journey to discover if sugar could be the real culprit in this crisis. He take on world-leading international scientists and the food industry, and he radically changes his diet in an attempt to understand the truth about sugar – and also to try not to die sooner than he has to.
