Default Addressing sugar addiction -What the industry can do

Good article in Food Navigator Europe on what industry & Government can do to reduce Food Addiction. Key part of the solution is Dr Jen Unwin and teamís work on gaining recognition by WHO.

Addressing sugar addiction -What the industry can do

Sugar addiction is a major health concern. It can lead to health conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, mental health conditions such as depression, and some experts have suggested that it could be as addictive as cocaine. But it is often not perceived as an addiction. What can people, and the food industry specifically, do to address this?

So their answer is smaller servings of a highly addictive substance? Can you imagine if that was tried with drug addicts?

Industry doesn't want to do anything, of course.

In the US, we can stop subsidizing the sugar production, which is also full of labor violations.

Studies show sugar causes a bigger hit than cocaine, by many times. "experts suggest" is purposely misleading to cast doubt.

Ive been off sugar for 80 days, with a couple days of sugar. Using AS as an aid is helpful and these days use of AS is very low to none. I can look at a bag of brown sugar without sudden urge to open bag and take a lump of carmel sweetness.

Ive noticed watching cooking shows triggers thoughts of eating much less to rarely now.



We need support for a whole food diet, nothing packaged, for biggest and fastest effort to kick sugar addiction. ( Because sugar is in 97% of foods now.)

Someone is financially benefitting from our grocery money and poor health.

I never desire sugary or sweet foods as such, but as an emotional eater, when I turn to sugar based foods I certainly feel like some sort of addiction to sugar takes hold very quickly. When I stop the sugar and eat very low carb, after just a couple of days I have zero desire for sugar. I'm always amazed at how quickly I can get "addicted" to it again, though.
