ABC News has reported that the American Heart Association (AHA) wants the average American to cut down sugar. Under new recommendations the AHA advises women eat no more than about six teaspoons every day in added sugars and men eat no more than 10 teaspoons
Despite those arrays of pink, blue and yellow packets of sugar substitutes, the average American eats 19 percent more sugar today than in 1970. If Americans followed the guidelines, the average person would cut their added sugar consumption by more than 70 percent.
