    An Open Letter to Health Organizations Funded by Coca-Cola

    Post by Eddie on Wed Sep 30 2015, 18:28

    Dear health leader

    It was recently disclosed that you were one of 486 health organizations who accepted funding from Coca-Cola. I’m writing to say thanks. I’m sure you’re doing amazing, back-breaking work to improve the health of your community. You probably rarely get thanked. You probably stretch every last dollar and still volunteer your own time when the bank account is empty. It’s probably uncommon for a partner actually pull out their wallet and write you a check.

    And that was Coca-Cola’s plan when they funded you.

    You are part of their corporate healthwashing strategy. They use donations to health organizations to boost their corporate image and deflect negative attention that their product is void of nutrition and causes disease. They use the health halo of your partnership to slow action on health policies aimed to decrease soda consumption during a rising obesity epidemic.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
