Mexico suffers from a sugar deficiency?
Mexico has an overweight-plus-obesity rate of 70%, and 15% of the population has type-2 diabetes. You might think that a key public health message might be “eat less sugar.”
But check this ad on a city bus:
- Cane sugar
- It’s natural
- A little happiness each day
- Only 15 calories per tablespoon
In other (implied) words, “eat more sugar! It’s good for you!”
