A recent New York Times editorial has shed light on the practice of large cola companies financially backing studies into how healthy a soda pop diet is. Most interesting of all is their claim that Coca Cola are backing a study which concentrates on emphasizing “exercise as the best way to control obesity and to play down the importance of cutting calories.”
This article goes on to claim that consumption of soda pop is on the decline, and because of this cola companies are trying to add their opinions on health and soda pop. I urge everyone to read this editorial, by clicking on the link HERE, and I’ll leave you with this quote below. Food for thought indeed…
An analysis published in PLOS Medicine found that studies financed by Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, the American Beverage Association and the sugar industry were five times more likely to find no link between sugary drinks and weight gain than studies reporting no industry sponsorship or financial conflicts of interest.
