The UK is the latest country to take aim at sweet tea’s calorie count.
Here’s how it’s going: 1.
Australia’s sweet drink has gained more than 3,000 calories per day in just two years, the ABC reports.
The national dietitian and food industry group said Australians were eating 1.7kg (3.6lb) of sweet tea per person every day, the equivalent of about three pints of Coca Cola.
Japan’s sweet drinks have also seen a huge increase in calorie intake, with one drink a serving increasing from 2,000kcal (4,000 kilos) to 6,600kcal in the past two years.
The latest figures for soft drinks and diet cola show that consumption has risen from about 1.8kg (2.3lb) per person per year to 2.6kg (4.3lbs) per year.
Australia, which consumes over four million litres of sweet drinks per year, has seen an average daily calorie intake rise from 1,500kcal to 1,750kcal.
Australia has also seen an increase in soda consumption with the latest figures showing that the number of people drinking soft drinks every day rose from 1.4 million in 2012 to 2 million last year.
Japan, which accounts for around 20 per cent of global soft drinks consumption, has had a similar rise.
The Japanese Ministry of Health said the average daily soda consumption in the country jumped from 4,800kcal last year to 7,500kg last year, but that the government was looking to reduce that.
The United States has seen a significant rise in consumption of soft drinks.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that consumption of soda has grown by almost 20 per the last two years and in the first quarter of 2017, consumption of the sweet drink increased from 4.4kg (11.6lbs) to 9.6 kg (22.7lbs).
That’s almost a 3.5-fold increase in the last four years.
The American Dietetic Association said in May 2017 that soda consumption was on the rise and the average American is drinking more than 20-30 litres of soda per day.
According to the AHA, Americans drink almost 60 litres of water per day and are drinking more soda than ever before.
Britain is the world’s biggest consumer of soft drink and diet drinks.
According the BBC, British consumers consume nearly a third of the world total.
The government said in 2017 that British consumers drank more than 6.5 million litres (21.4 litres) of soft-drink per person.
That is equivalent to one bottle of Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola has been the subject of a number of scandals in recent years.
Last year the company was fined for selling a diet drink containing sugar without a warning.
The company has also been under fire for selling soda laced with the banned substance.
Coca Colas products have been linked to liver disease and cancer.
Australia and the United States have the highest consumption of sugar in the world.
According a recent study from the National Centre for Health Statistics, Australians consumed more than 4.8 billion grams (1,700 litres) of sugar a day, more than the UK and New Zealand combined.
The study also said Australians had the highest obesity rate in the developed world.
The Australian Department of Agriculture (DA) says the sweet drinks industry has lost $4.5 billion in the three years to March 2018.
The report found the sweet-tasting beverage industry is set to lose $8 billion in 2019, after the beverage giant Coca-Co was fined $1.1 billion by the Food and Drug Administration for its misleading marketing practices.
The fines come as Coca- Colas continues to take a hit, losing about $6 billion in 2018 alone.
The ABC has contacted Coca-co for comment.
