The Personal Responsibility Argument Is Complete and Utter Nonsense


If sugar consumption is a huge driver of the obesity and diabetes epidemics, how should we act? Isn’t it all a matter of personal responsibility? No, says cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra:

“To have personal responsibility, you need information and choice, and people have neither,” he says. “Sugar is so prevalent in our environment that it’s unavoidable. The personal responsibility argument is complete and utter nonsense.”

I Quit Sugar: Dr Aseem Malhotra: “Fat’s as likely to make you fat as green vegetables.”
