Britain’s Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) has published a report condemning government policies aimed at reducing the consumption of sugar. “Just as fat seems to have been given an amnesty, so sugar is now in the dock,” according to report co-authors Rob Lyons and Christopher Snowdon. “So what exactly is the evidence that sugar is deadly? Can one substance really be responsible for a plethora of chronic diseases? If so, are the calls for action to reduce sugar consumption – including taxes and regulations – justified?” See IEA News Release, July 15, 2015.
