Dr. Nancy Appleton Bio

Nancy Appleton Ph.D. started writing and lecturing about health in the late 1970s as a reaction to her own poor health. Her discoveries about sugar and other common diet mistakes led to her first book Lick the Sugar Habit, which is still chugging along as a 25-year bestseller. Six more books have followed.
Her latest is Suicide by Sugar. She has also encapsulated her life’s work into the movie Sweet Suicide. Doctor Appleton is currently retired and resides in San Diego, California. Even though she is retired.

Dr. Appleton is currently writing her last book on why The Germ Theory, the medical paradigm of the western world, is incorrect. This theory has taken responsibility for our health away from individuals and given it to doctors and drug companies searching for the right pills. That over the past 100 years or so our failures using this theory sometimes outnumber our successes suggest we need a major shift in health thinking in the present.
