Hospitals are meant to be places where you go to recover and heal, or at least to help manage an health issue. Hospitals are not meant to actively harm people’s health. So why then, in the middle of obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics, are hospitals “veritable sugar shacks”?
I recommend this op-ed by Dr. Mark Cucuzzella over at the Nutrition Coalition:
Hospitals have a duty to make people healthy. They can start fulfilling that mission by banning sugary drinks.
