As he continues to spread the news worldwide and starts a petition on

‘Introducing a tax on sugary drinks in the UK to improve our children’s health’ which has had over 120k signatures already!

As dental professionals we are showing our support by signing and sharing this.

4 days ago on his public instagram account with over 3million followers, he uploaded 4 photos and his motivating captions under every photo that we thought we would share with you – he highlights dental decay, the cause and statistics.

Last night my documentary Sugar Rush aired in the UK… The petition we launched is growing but we need more to get the government to listen. Pulling out kids teeth cost the NHS around £30 million a year!! 26,000 primary school aged kids were admitted to hospital last year because of tooth decay caused by SUGAR!! This is why we need to make this change. It’s hard hitting but its reality…. If you haven’t already hit the link in my profile to sign the petition to take action…!

Guys this is the reality in the UK of what I’m talking about! This is real and happening and it’s all because of too much sugar. A sugar tax isn’t the only solution but it’s a catalyst for change. We have to start somewhere and I really believe a tax on sugary drinks is the right thing if you agree please sign the petition link in my profile. Signing off for the night now thanks for the love and support JO xx #sugarrush

Guys if you are in the UK my documentary #SugarRush will be on Channel 4 at 9pm TONIGHT! My team and I started looking into sugar consumption and what we found led me to film this documentary that shows just how devastating the effects of consuming too much sugar can be. I have witnessed enough to give me a solid determination that we have to TAKE ACTION… and I need your help!! Get watching and sign the petition to take action and share too #jamieoliver #SugarRush.
