[LISTEN] The Science Inside – Sugar Tax

We all love the sweet side of life, but with the government planning to tax sugary drinks, we’re having a look at all things sugar.

Aviva Tugendhaft from Priceless tells us why the sugar tax will lower obesity.

Hamish van Wyk, from the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, talks to us about a type of diabetes that affects pregnant women.

We also speak to Mike Miles, CEO of the South African Bee Industry Organisation about bee ecology.

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz, DJ Keyez, Buhle Ndweni and Relebone Myambo.

AdminBraai

SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
