Abstract: Consumption of refined sugar in modem diets has been identified as a source of many modem illnesses, including emotional and mood disorders. Furthermore, workplace "cake culture" within organizations has institutionalized and ritualized the consumption of sugar. I outline the effect that sugar consumption has on stress, fatigue and mood, and propose that these effects will have deleterious consequences on individual-level health and wellbeing in organizations. I further propose that social contagion has a mediating effect on these interactions. Implications for human resource management (HRM) and the work-life divide are then discussed. The paper concludes with future research directions for scholars.

Abstract: A point-of-sale tax may provide more reliable and timely data on consumption than a

manufacturer tax, which would tax junk food and SSBs not yet purchased by consumers.

Retailers could more easily report the geographic location of sales, permitting determination

of regional consumption patterns. The Internal Revenue Service confirmed that identifying

taxpayers for the POS indoor tanning excise tax has been challenging.3 And there are hundreds of thousands more food retailers than tanning providers.4 A POS tax would also implicate policy concerns for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), under which Congress prohibits states and locales from collecting taxes on food purchased with benefits. Since publication of our article, the federal government has not proposed a junk food or SSB tax, but 2 states, Michigan and Arizona, have preempted, or prohibited, local governments from enacting such a tax to support public health.
