LISBONA CATALAN, Arturo; PALMA MILLA, Samara; PARRA RAMIREZ, Paola  e  GOMEZ CANDELA, Carmen. Obesity and sugar: allies or enemies. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, suppl.4, pp.81-87. ISSN 1699-5198.

In the last three decades, the prevalence of obesity in developed countries has reached epidemic proportions, and continues rising. Many factors have influence on the incidence of obesity, and with the decline of physical activity, overeating plays a role in the emergence of this public health problem. Although a clear relationship between fat intake and weight gain has been established, the role of carbohydrates and more specifically from sucrose and the development of obesity is more controversial. Much of this controversy is due to the growing demand for sweetened drinks and caloric increase posed by these in the diet. Despite multiple studies and communications on this subject in recent years, there are still many areas of uncertainty about the role played by diets rich in sugars over the increase in obesity in last years.
