This disease is a killer, a self-inflicted condition related to obesity and our current lifestyles.

University of California researchers state that sugar poses a health risk as it contributes to approximately 35 million deaths across the world every year.

It is considered to be almost as toxic as alcohol and tobacco.

Moreover, they recommend banning sales of foods and drinks with added sugar in or near schools and placing age restrictions on those buying such items.
