Global Energy Balance Network is being dismantled after involvement with Coke revealed

Is weight control all about calories, energy balance and exercise? That’s what the Global Energy Balance Network claimed, until it was discovered that it had been funded by Coca-Cola (like most experts who say the same thing).

The Energy Balance Network claimed to be completely independent from Coca-Cola, despite the money. But then it was discovered that Coca-Cola had selected its leaders, edited its mission statement and put up their website.

A few weeks ago the Coca-Cola funding for the Global Energy Balance Network was cancelled. And this week the organization is being dismantled. A pure coincidence, of course.
