Men’s sweet tooth may increase risk of anxiety and depression
Watch the sugar, boys. Men who consume high levels of sugar from sweet drinks and snacks have been found to be 23 per cent more likely to develop depression or anxiety. Excessive sugar consumption has been linked with a range of health problems, including diabetes, obesity, and dementia. There also seems to be a link between sugar and depression and anxiety, but whether sugar contributes to these conditions, or if these disorders instead make people eat more sugar, has been unclear.
