Action on Sugar: important step in tackling obesity

FPH supports the launch today of a new campaign group, Action on Sugar, which aims to reduce the sugar content of food and drinks to help tackle the obesity crisis.

Dr John Middleton, FPH's Vice President for Policy, said: “FPH is pleased to support the launch of Action on Sugar: it is increasingly clear that sugar adds inches to our  waistlines, rots our teeth and harms our health while its "empty calories" have no nutritional benefits whatsoever. We can beat obesity: by taking the right kinds of action, we can reverse the impact and costs of obesity. Action on Sugar is an important step towards making this a reality.”
