Sugar. You're fired!
New guidance has been issued on how much sugar we should eat and it's not sweet reading.
The new guidance from Public Health England, based on the final report on Carbohydrates and Health from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN), says that the amount of free sugar in our diet should be reduced from 10% to 5%. This is a target only 1 in 8 of us currently hit.
What does the term 'free sugars' actually mean and how can you spot them? Our new guidance - How Much Sugar FAQs - answers men's questions. As with all Men's Health Forum guidance, it has been prepared in line with the Public Health Engalnd Information Standard.
It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
