Coca-Cola to Cut 1,200 Jobs as Sales Slump

With sales on the down side, Coca-Cola plans to cut 1,200 jobs as part of a company-wide cost-cutting process aimed at saving $800 million a year, CNN Money reports. In comparison, Pepsi’s sales are being boosted by its ownership of Frito-Lay snacks and Quaker Oats.

Whether it’s beverages or foods they’re selling, the processed foods industry is struggling to save sales and find new markets for their products, even though about 90 percent of the money Americans spend on food goes to buy processed junk. Not only that, an astonishing 60 percent of the food Americans eat is ULTRA-processed, and these foods account for 90 percent of the added sugar consumption in the U.S.

The dangers of eating too much added sugar have been well-established, and have even become officially recognized. For the first time ever, the 2015-2020 U.S. dietary guidelines now recommend limiting your sugar intake to a maximum of 10 percent of your daily calories. Research has also shown that as much as 40 percent of American health care expenditures are for diseases directly related to the overconsumption of sugar, with more than $1 trillion spent each year treating sugar and junk food diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

The answer to this global epidemic is obvious: Eat real food, as in fresh, whole, organic vegetables, fruits and meats, and ditch anything processed. Replace refined carbs with healthy fats and moderate amounts of protein. Intermittent fasting, or the more accurate term, Time Restricted Feeding (TRF), can also be helpful. Exercise is another important component — even being physically active as little as 2.5 hours a week can be beneficial.
