Workplaces should ban sale of sugary drinks, say doctors
Research by the university of California showed that removing sugary drinks from cafes, canteens and vending machines in a workplace improved employees’ health.
- The sales ban alone allowed staff to cut their sugary drinks by 23% (246ml) daily.
- In the study, some staff were also given information on how sugar harms health and were helped to identify reasons they might want to adopt a healthier lifestyle. These staff reduced their sugar intake by 73% (762ml) daily.
