The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that people should cut their sugar intake in half.
The WHO currently recommends a daily intake of 50g for adults - equivalent to about six level teaspoons - but is drafting recommendations that this should be halved.
The proposals follow warnings from England's chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, that a "sugar tax" may be needed to reduce sugar levels in food and drink.
