Hospitals are meant to be places where you go to recover and heal, or at least to help manage a 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.
