Cool Infographics - Caffeine Consumption

Cool Infographics has a cool (sorry I couldn't resist) new poster about caffeine consumption. The Caffeine Poster graphically demonstrates how much caffeine is the drinks we consume. The poster lists the quantity of caffeine as well as the quantity relative to other drinks. For example, did you know that a 12oz Starbucks coffee has more caffeine than a 16oz Monster energy drink? View and the download the poster here.

Applications for Education
Health and nutrition educators may find this poster to be something they would like to share with their students. The quantities in the poster are based on typical serving sizes so you may want to challenge your students to determine the quantity of caffeine per ounce for each drink.
