WHO recommend eat less sugar

As we know, sugar is sweet but also danger to our health. The World Health Organization has new advice to limit the sugar intake to less than 10 percent of total calories consumed each day. Sugar intake at just 5 percent of daily calories would provide additional health benefits.
The WHO recommendation based on advice from the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee which released their report a few ago.

Cutting our sugar to less than 10 percent mean we need to rethinking our favorite snacks and beverages. WHO says the types of sugar to cut back on include all of the sweeteners added to foods such as sucrose (table sugar) and high fructose corn syrup, as well honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates. The only sugars that don’t need to limit, according to WHO are intrinsic sugars, which are naturally present in foods such as whole fresh fruits and vegetables.
Public health advocates say the new WHO sugar guidelines are an important tool to help push back against the food and beverage industry — which has been resistant to limits on sugar.
