Industry-Funded Soda Studies Don’t Recognize Obesity Risks

An analysis of 60 soda studies found that almost 100 percent of studies funded by industry found absolutely no connection between sugar-sweetened beverages and obesity or diabetes, compared to non-industry studies which showed definite links, Scientific American reports.

This adds to earlier findings that I reported on a few weeks ago, when unearthed correspondence showed that the sugar industry has been manipulating nutritional science for decades. The evidence is damning: The sugar industry has been shown to also influence the scientific agenda of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, which back in 1971 created a national caries program — downplaying any links between sugar consumption and dental caries.

Another industry-backed study came to the unbelievable conclusion that eating candy may help prevent weight gain, as children who eat candy tend to weigh less than those who don't!

What’s worse, even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been caught colluding with soda giant Coca-Cola to influence World Health Organization (WHO) officials to relax sugar limits.

Even more disappointing is that a group you would think would be on your side — the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) — is actually working with the soda and sugar industry too, by accepting sponsorships from 30 different companies including Coca-Cola, Kellogg's, Monsanto and the Sugar Association.

Whether all this junk food science will ever come to an end, no one knows. But the one thing you can control is your own choice to eat and drink healthy foods and beverages. Show junk food makers who’s boss by ditching processed foods and sodas, all of which are filled with sugars and artificial ingredients that contribute to weight gain.
