Have you heard yet that the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) — which is dedicated to helping everyone attain "optimal health" — accepted a reported $600,000 from Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage company?
As if taking Coke's money wasn't bad enough, the soft drink manufacturer will actually fund new content about beverages and sweeteners for the AAFP's consumer website, www.FamilyDoctor.org
You heard me right. Big Soda will pay to "educate" you, dear consumers, about how sugar-filled beverages can be a part of your "healthy" lifestyle!
Many of us wellness advocates, as well as AAFP members, are in an uproar over this misguided alliance. Talk about partners with different objectives!
