Men with the highest sugar intake (more than 67g a day) had a 23% increased chance of suffering from depression and anxiety after five years than those who consumed the lowest levels of sugar (less than 39.5g a day). While this is an interesting association and the study does account or some other lifestyle factors, it still does not establish causation.
