Eating high levels of sugar has been associated with mental health illness such as depression. A recent study (July 2017) of over 8,000 adults aged 35 to 55 (in London) found that that men who reported consuming foods that contained 67 grams of sugar per day or more were 23% more likely to be diagnosed with clinical depression after five years from when the study began.
