Intake Of Sugar Still Soaring As WHO Changes Sugar Intake Guidlelines
On March 13, 2015 Preventdisease.com published an article titled "Intake: Of Sugar Still Soaring As WHO Changes Sugar Intake Guidelines". The article goes on to mention that the World Health Organisation (WHO) now recommends a daily intake of 25 grams of sugar or 6 teaspoons.
Research at the Emory School of Medicine in the United States found that some adults were eating 46 teaspoons of sugar a day. For many health experts this overabundance of sugar is a cause of many diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or cancer. High sugar intake is also connected to behavioral problems such as hyperactivity in children.
The article goes on to quote The Director of WHO's Department of Nutrition for Health and Development, Dr. Francesco Branca, who said, "The reason we are focusing on sugar is that we really have seen the important association with weight gain and obesity is a major public health concern for many countries, an increasing concern."
In Canada the level of adult obesity increased from 6.1 percent to 18.3 percent between 1985 and 2011. In the United States 35.7 percent of Americans 20 to 74 old were obese in the period from 2009 to 2012. That is up from 31.1 percent from a decade earlier.
