and explain what you thought of this article.
I don't usually read much about health, I'm not a fitness fanatic but I try to keep reasonably healthy with a little bit of exercise and by eating a balanced diet. However, there was one article that grabbed my attention recently, about sugar.
I often surf the internet and look at news websites in my spare time, I like to keep up to date with what's going on in the world. More often than not an article will have links to other articles down the side or at the bottom of the page, so you can spend hours going from one to another.
About a month ago, during the recent athletics championships in Beijing, I was reading an article about sport when a link to another article caught my eye. It was describing how for years people had thought fat was making people overweight and so food companies would bring out lots of low-fat products that were supposed to be healthier, such as low-fat yogurt or soft drinks. But in fact, these products are higher in sugar, and sugar is now thought to be worse for your health than fat.
I have no idea whether the article was right or not, but it certainly made me think about my sugar intake. It also made me think about people's diet in general, with more and more kids eating sugary snacks and enjoying more Western junk food like KFC and McDonald's. I think it's important to have these articles and documentary films that highlight the issues raised by the articles. Soon we might have a big problem with obesity, like the U.S.
