[Perspectives] A sweet and sticky end

Too much sugar is bad for you. After the furore there has been over sugar in the past couple of years, together with the launch of new nutritional guidelines from WHO, most of us know that. So the outcome of Australian film maker and actor Damon Gameau’s human experiment—on himself—is predictable. Gameau, who has not eaten added sugar in his food for some years, sets out to discover how his health will be affected if he eats the equivalent of 40 teaspoons a day for 2 months. Even though we are told that is the intake of an average Australian, nobody who begins to watch That Sugar Film (video) will have much doubt that by the end of the 60 days, Gameau is not going to feel so good.
