Catherine Sleep | 29 November 2006

Allow me to draw your attention to an innovative campaign aimed at defending the sugar industry. It flags up how sugar, in itself, is not to blame for the so-called obesity epidemic.

In any case, take a look at the pictures hyperlinked below for a flavour of the campaign.

Who wants a world where sugar is forbidden?
