SOUR WARNING ON SUGAR
Health Organization (WHO) urges that sugar intake should be reduced to no more than 10% of overall calories. The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that solid evidence correlates the intake of excess sugar – in the form of sugars added to processed foods as well as that present in fruit juices and cereals – as a major contributor to overweight, obesity, and tooth decay. WHO issued new guidelines for people to reduce sugar intake to no more than 10% of their overall calories. The recommendation does not apply to naturally occurring sugars in fruits, vegetables, and milk. To meet the lower threshold, the average American and European would need to slash their average sugar intake by two-thirds or more. Interesting as it was the WHO that openly recommended a diet that was 70% carbohydrate based with their flawed foot pyramid back in the 1990s! And this warning does not apply to fruit, milk? Fructose is a sugar, and so is lactose. Just google some of the side effects associated with excessive fructose consumption! When will they actually get the facts right!
