Sugar consumption has recently become a central issue in the debate over global approaches to address the growing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Controversies regarding the role of sugar in the aetiology of NCDs such as diabetes and obesity, and their risk factors, are nothing new. Disagreements surrounding recommendations on population upper limits for the daily intake of sugar and other macro-nutrients have persisted in many parts of the world over the last decade. Amalia Waxman outlines the development of a WHO Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (started in 2002) and the 2003 WHO/FAO Expert Report on diet, nutrition and the prevention of chronic diseases, developed in tandem with the Strategy.Development (2004) 47, 75–82. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100032
