ABOUT THE FILM

Are we killing ourselves with sugar? Scientific research points to the mounting evidence that sweeteners of all kinds – maple syrup to fruit juice, honey to soft drinks – are a major cause of diabetes, heart disease and obesity. It’s a global and growing problem, and one that has been hidden behind fifty years of obfuscation, manipulation and deceit by sugar producers, protecting their corporate interests. Sugar Coated is a film that takes an unvarnished look at the world of sugar politics, and listens to voices from the scientific community, voices raised in warning. Years of research have led to the irrefutable conclusion that sugar is toxic.
