Dr. Robert Lustig is waging a war on sugar. He calls sugar the culprit behind obesity, and wants the government to regulate sugar the way it does alcohol. But his ideas have stirred up controversy among his medical colleagues who say he has insufficient evidence linking sugar to obesity. Dr. Lustig joins KQED’s Forum to talk about his new book, “Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.”

    Host: Michael Krasny

    Guest: Robert Lustig, author, professor of pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology and director of the Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health (WATCH) at UCSF Medical Center
