French tax on soda

Seems the French don't like the unhealthy effects of soda on their citizens (French soda tax has Coke seeing red). They've proposed a one euro cent per can tax on soft drinks. This has upset the behemoth Coca-Cola, who has threatened to withhold investments in the country.

I don't blame France for not being eager to emulate the USA as a country overflowing with super-sized citizens suffering from diabetes.  A small tax is the least they might do to slow the unhealthy invasion that soda is making in their country and throughout the world.
