Uyen Nguyen and Joshua Conrad Jackson are back to discuss some things you might not have heard about sugar. More sugar consumption may lead to risky business in kids. We also examine whether the increasingly popular taxes on the sugar industry actually reduce sugary drink intake.

Joshua Conrad Jackson is a PhD student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He studies how culture changes over time, and the impact of cultural change on human cognition and behavior. Outside of research, he enjoys traveling and long-distance running.
Uyen got her degrees from the University of British Columbia where she studied how physical exercise affects the immune system of bone marrow recipients. She likes to be called “Oo-in” instead of “Yu-en”. In her free time, she runs, watches comedies, reads biographies, and eats chocolate-coated pretzels (occasionally all at once).
