Sugar Destroying Western Civilization

Refined Sugar Responsible for Spiraling Healthcare Costs
At least, that’s the conclusion of a recent Credit Suisse report…

According to the Wall Street bank, sugar is destroying our society: “Millions of people worldwide are affected by type II diabetes or obesity, costing the global healthcare system billions of dollars every year. The Credit Suisse Research Institute’s 2013 study ‘Sugar: Consumption at a crossroads‘ found that close to 90 percent of general practitioners surveyed in the US, Europe and Asia believe excess sugar consumption is linked to the sharp growth in these health problems.“  Read the full CS report here.
And according to the International Diabetes Federation:

366 million people have diabetes in 2011; by 2030 this will have risen to 552 million
The number of people with type 2 diabetes is increasing in every country
80% of people with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries
The greatest number of people with diabetes are between 40 to 59 years of age
