Warning: This video is cringe-worthy; watching someone guzzle down a glassful of fat is not a pleasant experience! In fact, the underlying message could hardly be provided more graphically, but what an important message it is! This video encourages Australians to rethink their consumption of sugary drinks.
You will find the original video on the “Rethink Sugary Drinks” website. This site is a collaboration between The Cancer Council, Diabetes Australia and The Heart Foundation. The Australian Dental Association, Nutrition Australia, The Stroke Foundation and VACCHO (Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations) support the site.
We’ll be sharing more about the profound effect that sweetened drinks can have on one’s health next month.
