Hosts Paul Blanchard and Dr. Aseem Malhotra are joined by guests including scientists, nutritionists, doctors and people who have tackled this secret addiction in their own lives discuss one of the biggest public health issues of our day: excess sugar in our diet.

In a monthly podcast, we investigate the trouble with sugar. We discuss how hidden sugar has crept into our everyday diet and the role of the food industry. We look at the science behind how our bodies use sugar. We debate the health crisis and effects of excess sugar; talk about our own experiences of sugar dependence and offer practical advice on how we can all call time on our national sugar addiction.
