Sugar spell: Breaking away from your sweet tooth's hold
from By Natalie Rodriguez
From Sept. 1:
It was a gray day in America earlier this year when the World Health Organization recommended adults and children reduce their daily intake of sugar to less than 10 percent of their total energy intake. In English, that's roughly 25 grams of sugar per day. America's sweet tooth wept in agony, not just from the cavities. The average American consumes 110 grams of sugar daily — a disconcerting 85 grams higher than the WHO's recommended amount.
