Here’s an entertaining video, in which Coca-Cola’s European president is hard pressed by a British journalist. Even though he’s media-trained he gets thrown way off track.
The Coca-Cola president is desperately trying to move away from the comparison with tobacco. You will always need to eat and drink, while you don’t have to smoke, he says. True. But as the beginning of the video makes clear, there’s also no need for a single gram of added sugar from Coca Cola either! It’s completely lacking in nutritional value and only contributes excess energy in the midst of an obesity epidemic.
In short: Each Coca Cola you drink makes you fatter.
In the introduction of the segment the impressive and eloquent Dr. Aseem Malholtra is interviewed. He attended the LCHF conference in South Africa in February.
What do you think about the Coca-Cola clip above? Is the journalist being unnecessarily harsh and hard on the president, or is he getting what he deserves? Is he trying to wriggle out of his responsibility for the obesity and disease that his company is spreading?
