US has the highest sugar/sweetener consumption among the selected countries, as high as 68.9 kg/person in a year. This is followed by Switzerland 58.5 kg/person, perhaps due to the fact of they own the famous Switzerland chocolates!
Japan and Italy consumed about 30 kg of sugar/sweeteners per person per year. However, it is quite surprise to note that the diabetes prevalence among Japanese (6.9%) and Italians (6.6%) are not far off better than Americans (8.0%) .
Malaysians take in 37.3 kg of sugar/sweeteners per year. Diabetes prevalence: 9.4% high.
