Malaysians, 1 of the Largest Sugar Consumers in the World

First, I will let the image below do the talking, hence, click on the image below for a clearer view.


Got shocked? No? Surprisingly, Malaysia is in the list and ranked #8 in the world! Secondly, I hope everyone is willing to read a small portion of an article that I've Googled.

The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) is concerned that sugar consumption among Malaysians is increasing at an alarming rate. The high sugar intake is reflected by the serious health problems and debilitating diseases striking Malaysians each day.

Early in 2009 Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad the former Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs announced that Malaysia is the 8th highest sugar users in the world.

In the 1970s, Malaysians consumed about 17 teaspoons of sugar a day. This figure went up to about 21 teaspoons a day in the 1980s. By the 1990s Malaysians were consuming an average of 24 teaspoons of sugar per day but now the figure has jumped to 26 teaspoons.
