Coca-Cola ads say obesity is a problem, but that soda is only 1 cause1/15/2013
Coca-Cola has built an empire offering sugary-sweet soft drinks that its marketers say will bring a smile to your face. Well, now the company admits those drinks can also contribute to making us fat. Beginning this week, the soda maker will begin airing two-minute-long commercials addressing the nation's obesity epidemic and highlighting the fact that it has released lower-calorie drinks to consumers over the years. In what was probably the most dramatic step to curb consumption of the calorie-heavy drinks, the New York City Board of Health banned sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces. Coca-Cola insists the ads aren't damage control amid negative sentiments from the public, but are meant to inform consumers about its healthier offerings. [Source]
