Lawyer Benjamin Kuo experienced this first hand and is on a mission to change that. After years of struggling with metabolic syndrome and fatty liver disease, everything changed when he stopped following USDA guidelines and his doctor’s advice to just go on a pill or deal with it. Today, he shares more about the work he’s doing to help change the sugar industry and transparency on food labels both in California and nationwide.
