Coca-Cola ad a con?

Did you catch Monday’s two-minute Coca-Cola commercial on US cable TV?

fizzy_drink_aspartameThe company, under ever-increasing pressure from governments and critics, put together the ad to highlight its efforts in fighting obesity.

It mentioned how Coca-Cola sells about 180 low-calorie and no-calorie drinks and how it works to produce better-tasting low-calorie sweeteners.

Did it mention that the low-calorie sweeteners the company uses include aspartame with all its health-threatening side-effects?

No. We thought not.  And as for Coca-Cola pretending to be part of the solution to obesity rather than part of the problem, isn’t that a tad disingenuous and hypocritical?

    Wow, how in the world can they get away with all the lies?

    Completely Pointless! Are they still using HFCS? Are they still using Aspartame? Is their product bottled with fluoridated water? if the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you can be sure this fluff is all about marketing and not at all about health and well-being. FAIL!

    These companies would give you poison to make a profit, if they could get away with it, and that’s exactly what they’re doing!

    There are two ways of being guilty of a crime! One way is to do the crime and the other way is to stand by and do nothing about it!

    Wow, what a brain wash! All they talk about ‘calories’ to take people’s mind away from the real dangers of what it is made of and showing the images of kids exercising???? OMG
