Based on a report last year from the U.K. Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, the U.K. has decided to implement in 2018 a three-tiered tax on sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB):

  • High tax: >8 g sugar/100 ml
  • Moderate tax: 5-8 g/100 ml
  • No tax: <5 g/100 ml

Researchers have now estimated, based on modeling scenarios, this will significantly benefit the prevalence of obesity (150,000 fewer obese), type 2 diabetes, and a reduction in dental caries.

LifeTip: Reduce your consumption of refined sugars to cut your risk of disease. Watch “Reverse Diabetes Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
