Real-ly Wrong

Your tax dollars fund the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a federal agency that bills itself as “the nation’s health protection agency, working 24/7 to protect America from health and safety threats.”

But emails between the CDC and Coca-Cola executives suggest the CDC cares more about Coke’s profits than your health.

According to a study published in The Milbank Quarterly, emails reveal that Coke used its cozy relationship with the CDC “to gain and expand access, to lobby and to shift attention and blame away from sugar-sweetened beverages.”

One of Coke’s most popular advertising slogans was: “It’s the Real Thing!” Too bad the company’s health safety claims aren’t.

TAKE ACTION: Ask the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform to investigate Coca-Cola’s influence on the CDC.
