Doctors call on workplaces to ban sale of sugary drinks

https://www.theguardian.com/society...e-sugary-drinks



Quote:
Aseem Malhotra, an NHS consultant cardiologist and professor of evidence-based medicine, said: “This latest research not only solidifies the evidence that the positive health impact of sugar reduction is independent of body weight, but that removing the sale of sugary drinks from the working environment is a key solution to combating diet-related disease amongst staff.

“It’s an absolute scandal that our hospitals have become a branding opportunity for the junk food industry and not surprising that more than 50% of healthcare staff are now overweight or obese. If we truly want to reverse obesity and its associated diseases we must stop selling sickness in the hospital grounds.”
