Sweetening Sugar's Bad News

A recently released email conversation between 2 industry groups and 2 former Coca-Cola Company executives reveals that Big Soda may be taking a page from Big Tobacco’s playbook, public health advocates say.
 
The emails reveal an intent to “cast doubt on the science, influence reporters, use front groups to undermine concerns about the harmful effects of sugary drinks and head off dietary guidelines raising such concerns, and regulations,” says New York University’s Marion Nestle.
 
The email discussion followed the release of 2015 US Dietary Guidelines recommending that Americans reduce consumption of sugar-sweetened foods and beverages.
