Where do people eat most sugar and sweeteners?

At request we added a new indicator for consumption of sugar and sweeteners per day and person, i.e. it measures how many grams sugar and sweeteners does each person consume in one day.

In this graph we plotted sugar consumption against income per person.

It is of course tempting to plot this indicator against “bad teeth per child”.

In this graph we have done precisely that. However, the link between the two indicators seems to be relatively weak.

NOTE: the figures for 2004 is based on a very rough extrapolation (i.e. we use the data for 2003) and this was only done to allow a comparison with “bad teeth per child”.
