«Puro, blanco y letal» de John Yudkin

Aunque hoy se le considere un héroe de la lucha anti-azúcar (y el tiempo le haya dado la razón), John Yudkin las pasó realmente canutas. Por eso quiero rendir a este pionero de la ciencia nutricional «realmente» basada en la evidencia, no en intereses económicos, ni en epifanías diversas, el homenaje que se merece.

¡Aúpa keto!
