Interesting article that questions why some swedish cereals have a higher sugar content than that of the USA.

This is just to protect 'muricans from sudden death given their massive portions rolleyes.gif . In practice, The Swedish portions are smaller in comparison, and so can have an extra couple grams in absolute terms (it reall is that little, just two grams or so) more.

I would be more worried about this:

Yes I agree byke, Sweden should ban all UK manufactured cereals as they contain too much sugar!

Very interesting article that...used to eat a lot of Special K myself, but have ditched it for porridge, which is good for keeping your blood pressure down.

I have heard of a (as yet to be confirmed) report which states that 100% of Swedish women surveyed completely lose their libido when asked if they would like to go for a ride by byke! tongue.gif

That could explain a few things...

Apropos the bit about going by byke:-
