Zucker ist giftig, macht abhängig und krank – ist aber gleichzeitig allgegenwärtig. Zuckerfrei zu leben scheint geradezu unmöglich. Da wir heutzutage immer beschäftigt sind und kaum Zeit zum Kochen haben, greifen wir auf verarbeitete Lebensmittel zurück.

Lustig deckt die Wahrheit über zuckerreiche Nahrung auf: ·Zu viel Zucker kann schwere Krankheiten verursachen – selbst bei Menschen, die nicht übergewichtig sind ·Diäten, bei denen nur Fett reduziert wird, funktionieren nicht ·Die Lebensmittelindustrie reichert unsere Nahrungsmittel mit verstecktem Zucker an und auf solche Lebensmittel muss man verzichten, um diesen Zucker zu vermeiden. ·Die Politik macht sich mitschuldig und verschlimmert die Lebensmittelkatastrophe noch weiter Dieses Buch verändert die Sichtweise auf unsere Nahrung radikal und eröffnet zugleich die Chance auf ein gesünderes und glücklicheres Leben. Es bietet einzigartige und wissenschaftlich fundierte Strategien, wie man sinnvoll Gewicht verlieren und wieder fit werden kann.

Ein Buch über das Sterben, das das Leben lehrt Die Medizin scheint über Krankheit und Tod zu triumphieren, doch sterben wir so trostlos wie nie zuvor. Der Bestsellerautor und renommierte Arzt Atul Gawande schreibt in seinem beeindruckenden Buch über das, was am Ende unseres Lebens wirklich zählt.

Ein mutiges und weises Buch eines großartigen Autors, voller Geschichten und eigener Erfahrungen, das uns hilft, die Geschichte unseres Lebens gut zu Ende zu erzählen. »Dieses Buch ist nicht nur weise und sehr bewegend, sondern gerade in unserer Zeit unbedingt notwendig und sehr aufschlussreich.« Oliver Sacks »Die medizinische Betreuung ist mehr auf Heilung ausgelegt als auf das Sterben. Dies ist Atuls Gawandes stärkstes und bewegendstes Buch.« Malcolm Gladwell
