DIABETES WEEK 2017: AN ALLEN CARR’S EASYWAY SURVEY INDICATES “SUGAR ADDICTION EPIDEMIC”
DIABETES WEEK 2017: ALLEN CARR’S EASYWAY SURVEY INDICATES “SUGAR ADDICTION EPIDEMIC” IN THE UK
- New research from Allen Carr’s Easyway indicates that more than half of the UK population are currently at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
- A quarter of the people surveyed believe they are sugar addicts
It’s Diabetes Week in the UK.
There are 2.9 million Type 2 Diabetes sufferers in the UK, costing the NHS £11.8 billion per year. The number of people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes has grown by a third in a decade and there has been an increase of 137,000 Type 2 patients during the past year in the UK alone. With the increased pressure on the NHS this brings, Allen Carr’s Easyway commissioned One Poll to exclusively survey 2,000 people in Britain, to gauge their attitudes to sugar consumption, the major cause of Type 2 diabetes.
Key findings of the research
• Nearly a quarter of the population (22%) would class themselves as a sugar ‘addict’
• More than 70% of Brits don’t bother to monitor their sugar intake at all
• When asked to monitor sugar intake over a week, more than half (52%) consume more than the NHS guidelines of seven teaspoons of sugar per day, putting them at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes
• Only half, 50%, plan to make any effort to address their levels of sugar consumption over the next 12 months
• Those in Wales were least likely to monitor sugar intake, with 80% claiming not to bother
John Dicey, Worldwide CEO & Senior Therapist of Allen Carr’s Addiction Clinics comments:
“Our exclusive survey findings confirm that Britain is in the middle of a sugar addiction epidemic. It is so widespread in our food, yet some simple education and understanding can drastically cut the amount of sugar we are consuming”.
Dicey continues “Allen Carr’s Easyway have been at the forefront of nicotine addiction for over 30 years, having cured an estimated 30 million people of their addiction worldwide. We can see that sugar addiction is having the same kind of impact that nicotine addiction has had over the years. We’ve done a great job with helping people break free of their nicotine addiction and given the state of the nation, the method has now been successfully applied to the problem of sugar addiction. We have seen some fantastic results over the past year, helping numerous clients break free of sugar addiction through our best-selling book, our online on-demand programme, and live seminars. We’ve seen many people actually reverse the development of diabetes – and Type 2 Diabetes sufferers actually being cured and no longer needing expensive medication for the rest of their lives”.
