If you have been paying attention to health news, or frankly any news this past week, then you most likely ran across some version of the New York Times piece Coca-Cola Funds Scientists Who Shift Blame for Obesity Away From Bad Diets. A piece spearheaded by BMI’s own Dr.Freedhoff after asking the now infamous Global Energy Balance Network to disclose their funding. The massive amount of media attention that followed has helped ignite conversation around food industry ties to public health and science on quite possibly the largest scale to date.
Below is some of the major coverage this important story received over the past five days; for your reading pleasure.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Coca-Cola territory!)
