This week on The Daily Beat: We investigate Coca-Cola’s partnership with cooperative scientists.

Today on the Daily Beat, Wednesday, August 19, 2015: We speak with Niraj Naik, former pharmacist was once perhaps the most unlikely candidate to promote meditation and anything as seemingly as farfetched as sound healing. A pill popper who also dispensed them as well for a living, he found his life spiraling out of control however.

Niraj began to pursue a path of holistic healing and with his website he produced articles about the dangers of sugary drinks like Coca-Cola that have since gone viral.

Today, he helps many fight their addictions to sugary drinks and foods to improve overall health and nutrition.
