To Tax or Not to Tax: Which one has more sugar?

WHICH ONE HAS MORE SUGAR?

STARBUCKS GRANDE SOY CHAI LATTE

36 GRAMS OF SUGAR

1 CAN OF POP

39 GRAMS OF SUGAR

1 BOTTLE OF GATORADE

35 GRAMS OF SUGAR

If you guessed the can of pop, you're correct but the other sugary beverages aren't far behind! Today (February 9th, 2016) the Dietitians of Canada released a new position statement recommending that the government put a 10-20% tax on sugary drinks due to "the negative impact of these products on the health of the population" (http://www.dietitians.ca/Media/News-Releases/2016/SSBPosition.aspx) Other health organizations have also chimed in to agree with this position statement.

Will taxing the products be enough or do Canadians need more education?
