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.

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.
