The official page for Dr. Robert Lustig, author of Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease.
Robert Lustig has been a pediatric endocrinologist for 32 years. In that time, he has watched the obesity and metabolic syndrome rates climb, first to the level of epidemic , and now the rates in other countries qualify this as a pandemic. Worse yet, these problems are occurring in infants and toddlers, who clearly cannot be guilty of character flaws. Something else is going on.

And by helping children, it will no doubt help adults as well. Robert has the science, the clinical experience, and the policy training to shine a light on our current medical assumptions, and have society rethink obesity and its associated diseases. Just like efforts against tobacco and alcohol, these efforts includes education, research, and as necessary, litigation.
