Don't worry about keeping a healthy diet -- just be sure to exercise after you eat all those chalupas and you'll be fine! At least, that's what Coca-Cola would like you to believe.
According to a report by The New York Times, the largest manufacturer of sugary drinks is funding a group of scientists from a nonprofit organization called Global Energy Balance Network, which promotes the idea that achieving a healthy weight has more to do with exercise than avoiding fast food and sugary drinks. How convenient!
In a new video promoting this mission, the group's vice president Steven N. Blair says, "Most of the focus in the popular media and in the scientific press is, ‘Oh they’re eating too much, eating too much, eating too much’ — blaming fast food, blaming sugary drinks and so on... And there’s really virtually no compelling evidence that that, in fact, is the cause."
