      I haven't seen that ad yet, but I'll keep my eyes peeled. Do you think the vending machines should provide more health-related information in addition to the caloric intake, like amount of sugar?

        When you resort to a vending machine, you're probably on the go. You don't have time to read a packet, a brochure, or even a full-on chart. As someone who grew up drinking A LOT of soda pop and candy, advertisers need to better simplify the relationship between the "sugars" in a can of soda vs the recommended amount.

        A regular 12oz can of Caffeine-free Coca Cola has 39 grams of sugar. The American Heart Association recommends 37 grams of sugar for the average man...25 grams for the average woman.

        We consume a lot of natural sugars, from even the healthiest of things that we eat and drink. Add it all up and you might be way over the line.
