World Map on Average Consumption of Sugars and Sweeteners

The Word Dental Federation created a map on the average consumption of sugars and sweeteners, measured by grams per person per day. This map is one of many maps created by the World Dental Federation about the indicators and factors of oral health and oral health related issues. Based on the map below, in most countries in the world, including the U.S., individuals are consuming more than 100 grams of sugar per person per day. This information is significant for developing policies and issues regarding oral health issues and chronic illnesses.
