Sweet Kills: The Dangerous Effects of Sugar We All Should Know About

Calling the attention of everyone who loves to eat sweets, this one is for you!
I guess as someone who has a sweet tooth already knows who sugar is and how it affects your health. However, most of us think that consuming lots of sweet foods only leads to weight gain or deterioration of our teeth.  Sad truth is, sugar can harm us more than that. Consuming too much sugar can also cause Type 2 Diabetes, which gravely reduces our body’s capability to heal itself that can lead cuts and sores to severe infection and even result to amputation.

To raise awareness about the dangerous effects of sugar, The Diabetes Association of Thailand commissioned Thai designer Nattakong Jaengsem to create a campaign that will convince people to reduce their sugar consumption. The campaign was named “Sweet Kills” and the photographs are about diabetes-related injuries that are recreated using the favorite sweets that we all love to consume.

The resulting photos are stunning but  may be very difficult to look at. No doubt it is effective enough to make you think twice before you head on to reach your cookie jar.
