For most people, the most harmful thing that might come from eating cakes and brownies is a stomachache from overindulging, but these ads from the Diabetes Association of Thailand prove that consuming too many sweets could lead to health issues that are far more severe.

The ads depict arms, knees and feet that seem to have been eaten away by sugary confections, replacing healthy bone and muscle structures with rotting candy parts. The arresting visuals of the print posters are supported by a message that reads: "Uncontrolled diabetes causes woulds to heal slower."

Although extreme, these advertisements help to create a dramatized visualization of what happens when the intake of sugary foods and drinks are not properly monitored.
