Limit your sugar intake

Sugar in processed foods & drinks has replaced salt & fat as health’s public enemy #1 according to the UN World Health Assembly. It causes tooth decay and weight gain which leads to ill health.

The WHO recommends limiting sugars to no more than 6 tsp or 24 grams a day.

If you read the nutrition information label on a 375 ml can of Coke, you’ll see there are 40 grams of sugar in the can.

Since 4 grams equals 1 teaspoon, the can contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. If you wouldn’t eat 10 teaspoons of sugar, would you drink it?
