  • WHO is now proposing cutting that in half: sugar should not makeup >5% of your calories
  • WHO had commissioned an obesity study, which found while sugar did not directly cause obesity,
    those who consumed a lot of it, particularly in sweetened drinks, tended to put on weight as sugary food did not make them feel full.
