“The obesity pandemic is due to our altered biochemistry, which is a result of our altered environment.”
Robert H. Lustig, Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease

“If you don’t know how to cook, you’re hostage to the food industry for the rest of your life and unwittingly will pass this on to your children.”
Robert H. Lustig, The Hacking of the American Mind: Inside the Sugar-Coated Plot to Confuse Pleasure with Happiness

“Ascribing personal responsibility to the obese individual is not a rational argument for an eminently practical reason: it fails to advance any efforts to change it. The obesity pandemic is due to our altered biochemistry, which is a result of our altered environment.”
