Lovely Planet: Group Calls For Limits On Sugar In Soft Drinks
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, which loves to ruin everyone’s day by reminding people of all the calories and fat in the foods we enjoy, are calling on the FDA to set a safe level of added sugars in soft drinks and other sweetened beverages.

The CSPI uses the American Heart Association’s recommended daily maximum of 6 tsps of added sugar for women and 9 tsps for men to point out that a single 20-ounce bottle of soda typically contains around 16 tsps of sugar, often from high-fructose corn syrup.

Furthermore, argues the group, the average American consumes between 18 and 23 teaspoons (300-400 calories) of added sugars per day. Research shows that around 20% of adolescents (ages 12 to 18) consume at least 25% of their calories from added sugars. In all, around 14 million people in the U.S. consume more than one-third of their calories in the form of added sugars.
