On Thursday I linked to Stephan Guyenet’s negative book review of Gary Taubes’ work on sugar.
Taubes asked that I pass on a counterargument he’s been working on for a while. In early January, he posted a short version of his case against sugar to Cato Unbound. It got three response essays – one by Terence Kealy, one by Yoni Freedhoff, and one by Stephan Guyenet, where he made some of the same points as in the linked article.
So now Taubes has now posted a response, The Case Against Sugar Isn’t So Easily Dismissed.
All of the essays are interesting and informative, and everyone involved deserves praise for some high-level debate that’s helped me clarify my thinking on this.
