The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released a draft for public debate which recommends that adults consume no more than six (6) teaspoons of sugar a day.  A can of soda or “healthy” fruit juice has nearly ten!  The guidelines are based on a analysis of more than 120 scientific studies.

Watch Coke, Pepsi and all food manufacturers fight this with millions of propaganda dollars.  Sugar is the next tobacco folks!
