John Yudkin was one of the pioneer researchers examining the link between sugar and various degenerative illnesses. As far back as 1957 he showed that sugar consumption in England was more closely associated with coronary heart disease than the widely-blamed saturated fats from animal foods. Easy to read and straight to the point, Yudkin's book is every bit as relevant today as it was in the 70's; consumption of refined sweeteners is just as high today as it was back then, and the prevalence of diabetes is now at unprecendented levels. "Sweet and Dangerous" is out of print, but I would highly recommend you pick up a second-hand copy and read it along with the classic "Sugar Blues" by William Dufty (still in print).
