What Coca-Cola isn’t telling you about its “health” funding in Australia


Coca-Cola is up to no good again. The soda giant is financing a campaign in Australia, where the goal is to focus the discussion about obesity on exercise and away from diet (sugar).

Unfortunately some obesity researchers are only too willing to prostitute themselves by accepting sugar money for their services (i.e. not focusing on sugar). Or as one university professor puts it, he willingly asks for Coca-Cola’s “corporate philanthropy” to fund his obesity research.

That is, that’s what he says when answering a journalist’s questions. Apparently, before that both he and Coca-Cola had kept very quiet about their little arrangement.

Despite promising full transparency more than six months ago, Coca-Cola is still keeping its funding of Australian research and health groups a secret.
