This week on The Daily Beat: We investigate Coca-Cola’s partnership with cooperative scientists.
Today on the Daily Beat, Monday, August 17, 2015: We speak with Marion Nestle, a Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University. Her blog, food politics, comments on the interaction of food and politics. She has written in contempt on the latest campaign by Coca-Cola to fund nonprofit research group, Global Energy Balance Network, who produce findings that shift the blame of obesity away from sugary drinks.
Investing $1.5 million last year to help start the new nonprofit, Coke has a large network of reputable scientists supporting their sugary product. Nestle explains with us why scientists take this funding and how we can be more aware of the underlying biases in research funded by Food and Drink companies.
