Food Law Society Hosts Gary Taubes - Harvard Food Law Society
 
 
Picture
New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed science writer Gary Taubes delivered a lecture on March 30, “Why We Get Fat: Adiposity 101 and the Alternative Hypothesis of Obesity,” as part of a series of events sponsored by Harvard Law School’s Food Law Society.

Presenting findings from his fourth book, "Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It" (December 2010), Taubes said he wrote to the book to “convince public health authorities that they should rethink everything they know…about obesity and chronic disease.”

A link to a video of the event can be found below the fold.


In his landmark best seller, “Good Calories, Bad Calories” (2007), Taubes argued that the obesity epidemic can be directly linked to the overemphasis on certain kinds of carbohydrates in the average diet, rather than to an excess of fats or calories. The book was borne out of a piece Taubes wrote for The New York Times Magazine in 2002 called "What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?," which brought both controversy and acclaim. In this week’s New York Times Magazine Taube outlines the case against sugar in his article “Is Sugar Toxic?”

“Obesity occurs when a person consumes more calories from food than he or she burns,” Taubes said in his introduction to his talk. “That’s how the NIH [National Institute of Health] puts it. The US surgeon general says that being overweight is a result of caloric imbalance and is mediated by genetics and health.

“How many people believe this? How many people in here think this is meaningful?”
