New research has some in the UK calling on the government to set targets to reduce the amount of sugar in soft drinks.
LONDON, ENGLAND (NBC) - New research has some in the UK calling on the government to set targets to reduce the amount of sugar in soft drinks.
A study by the campaign group "Action on Sugar" said 79 percent of fizzy drinks contained six or more teaspoons of sugar per can.
The group says that's more than the World Health Organization's recommended maximum daily limit for sugar consumption.
The British Soft Drinks Association's Director General, however, said the campaign was politically motivated and pointed out how the industry had changed to offer low or no sugar calorie beverages.
