A political thread runs through Taubes’s writings on diet. He shows the government to be the prime purveyor of myths and falsehoods on the subject. Taubes is a sober writer. I don’t think he is ever intentionally humorous. Yet his exposure of the government’s consistently erroneous teachings on diet is almost funny. It’s the dietetic analogue of political incorrectness. Gillespie touches briefly on this element of Taubes’s work in the interview.
