Last but not least, sugar is the most polluting crop in the world. The Everglades, in Florida, USA is the most threatened National Park in the USA, and it is from all the chemicals used on the production of sugar.

Toxic chemicals produced in sugar production, contribute to high rates of leukemia among children who live nearby. In Queensland, Australia, high amounts of pesticides/chemicals from sugar production and other industries are leaching into the ocean and threatening the Great Barrier Reef.
