Gluttony (gula)

Gluttony is characterized by the pressing need of human beings to consume food and drink excessively. Some Christian denominations consider it one of the seven deadly sins.

A gula caracteriza-se por uma necessidade imperiosa de ingestão de excesso de comida e bebida por parte dos seres humanos. Algumas denominações cristãs consideram-na um dos sete pecados mortais.
