DO you like sweet treats and drinks? I bet you do! But recently the governments of the United States (US, 美國) and the United Kingdom (UK, 英國) have both declared a war on sugar!

Early this month, the American (美國的) government issued new dietary guidelines that strongly recommended people to consume less sugar. On the very same day, British (英國的) Prime Minister David Cameron (卡梅倫) said he has not ruled out the idea of a tax on sugar.

The reason is simple. Too much sugar will make you obese without fail. This will increase your chances of getting many illnesses, including diabetes.
