Scientific evidence continues to grow about the negative impacts of consuming sugar. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with investigative science journalist Gary Taubes. Taubes is the author of the new book "The Case against Sugar" and argues that sugar is as unhealthy as smoking.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m and 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
