It’s official, Diet Coke is healthier for you than water, well according to a bizarre new study conducted by Coke it is. A new obesity study led by Prof. Peter Rogers, PhD, of the University of Bristol, shows the following conclusion:
“Overall, the balance of evidence indicates that use of [low-energy sweeteners] in place of sugar, in children and adults, leads to reduced [energy intake]and [body weight], and possibly also when compared with water.” Translation: diet soda is better for controlling your weight than water!
I alway’s thought Coke products & especially, Diet Coke were toxic to human health but i guess i was, Dead Wrong. It’s incredible how these corporations do their own studies to come to their own conclusions, great for business.
What’s also very interesting, but not surprising, is that the study was backed by Coca-Cola and Pepsi, The creepy group behind the one sided & totally bias study, the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), even has representatives of both beverage giants on its Eating Behaviour and Energy Balance Task Force. I don’t know about you, but i won’t be taking any health advice from an organisation that calls itself, the International Life Sciences Institute.
If the term “energy balance” sounds familiar to you, it is because Coca-Cola was recently embarrassed when one of its executives was forced to step down after emails showed the company was behind an “independent” nonprofit group called the Global Energy Balance Network, a group that promoted the notion that lack of exercise, not bad diet, is primarily responsible for the obesity epidemic, the Global Energy Balance Network, give me a break.
