The Politics of Sugar Part 2

For the second time in six months, the UK government appears to be sitting on a report that questions (as far as we know) whether we should substantially decrease the amount of sugar in our diet.

Now I have no particular insight into why any government would want to hold up a report that may help people improve their health and lose weight. Maybe the politician responsible has noticed a problem with the research methodology or that some of the scientific evidence is unreliable. Or maybe something else is going on but in the week where we “celebrated” the first ever World Obesity Day, I think our politicians ought to be doing more, doing it better and doing it quicker.
