"My research has identified excessive fructose intake from sugar and high fructose corn syrup as a risk factor for the development of obesity and diabetes. After I wrote a book on the subject, the Fat Switch, I had the opportunity to talk to Dr. Mercola. We realized we has similar viewpoints on the role of fructose in metabolic syndrome, and he offered to help me publish my book. I want to thank him for that opportunity, as he helped me to reach out with my message to a large audience that might otherwise had never known about my work or my book. Our similar beliefs on the deleterious effects of excessive fructose resulted in a nice collaboration. "
