The Sugar Pandemic: Policy vs. Politics vs. Law
Robert H. Lustig, M.D., M.S.L.

Presented by the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy

UCSF professor and UC Hastings graduate (MSL '13) Dr. Robert Lustig discusses the science and policy that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease over the last 30 years. In the late 1970's the US government mandated that we limit fat in our food, and the food industry responded by using more sugar. Dr. Lustig argues that the result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.

Dr. Lustig's lecture is based on research and findings in his new book Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.
