Gary Taubes is a rocket scientist who studied at Harvard and Stanford. He used to write about bad science (meaning non-evidence based) and high-energy physics.
I found out about him from a patient who gave me his book “Good Calories, Bad Calories”. I have seen several interviews and lectures online that Gary has given and they are excellent and full of true data about health and nutrition. His latest books are “The Case Against Sugar” (2016) and “Why We Get Fat” (2011).
How he got started in the health field was one of his friends recommended he take a look at science in the medical and health fields because the science was bad. His love of good scientific procedure and disdain for bad science is what separates him from most medical researchers who have financial ties to a study. He is a very trustworthy source. I hope you can enjoy one of his books.
