Sugar in Starbucks Drinks

Will You Still Drink Starbucks After Seeing These Sugar Stats?

Sugar makes things taste oh so delicious, but having too much in your diet is bad news for your health. It's linked to an increased risk of cancer, liver damage, and heart failure, and speeds up the aging process. Boo.

The American Heart Association suggests no more than 24 grams or six teaspoons of sugar a day. Think your little morning cup of joe is no big deal? Check out the sugar content in popular Starbucks drinks. No, you're not mistaken — those numbers are shockingly real, with some offering over twice the amount you should have in a day!
