The British Columbia Chapter of the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists presents our next education session.
Sugar is everywhere! From the snacks that we eat to the drinks that we drink, we are surrounded by sugars every single day. Combined with a dramatic shift in how we work, play and live, this can have a dramatic impact on how our bodies are affected by our lifestyles. This session will provide an overview of the growing body of evidence regarding the impact of sugar on our bodies and specifically on what the latest research tells us about its effects on our brains.
