The article sums up some recent facts, crucial for determining the adversity of added sugar. Over the past fifty years, consumption of sugar has increased thrice, which according to scientific evidence may prove to be the leading cause of chronic diseases including liver toxicity. The contributors critically approach the idea of regulating sugar consumption in their article by suggesting that just as prohibition of drunken-driving, smoking in public places, intravenous drug intake, disposal of condoms in public places have been facilitated by the government for public benefit, regulation of food supplies with added sugar by the government may appear to be complicated at first but is necessary on behalf of benefitting public health.
In my conception of a suitably researched, evidential and proposal essay, the article “Public Health: The Toxic Truth about Sugar” positively abides by all the necessities of an academic article. It sums up recent findings on the primary concern of adversity of added sugar, analyzes the extent to which such adversities have already affected people and to what it would in future, followed by appropriate proposals on preventing such an incidental health hazard. I find the article ethically tied to its roots of purposeful research, evidence and scientific suggestions.
