Sugar Intake Worldwide
Last week I read a post about juices and the amount of sugar they have. I wanted to know about the sugar in a soda. Many people in the world are using a lot of sugar. From 2003-2013, the daily average of using sugar increased from 58 grams to 63 grams per day. People should reduce the amount to less than 10 percent. One can of soda contains up to 40 grams (around 10 teaspoons) of sugar. Orange and apple juices have between 24-26 grams. The current average in South America was 130 grams per adult per day, in North and Central America 95 grams, in Western Europe about 101 grams and 90 grams in the Middle East. Equatorial and southern Africa has the lowest average of 30 grams.
What is a way that we can use to prevent people from drinking and buying soda?
Is it possible to reduce amount of sugar for people who drinking soda is their habit?
