@CDCgov have had a cozy relationship with @CocaCola since 1946 when the CDC headquarters site was kindly donated by Coca Cola chairman Robert Woodruff.
@CocaCola funding that initial land for @CDCgov
Ever noticed that @CDCGlobal downplays the perils of #sugar?
@CocaCola have been 'manipulating' the #sugar message of @CDCgov for a long time.
"Coca-Cola Company tried to influence the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on diet and obesity issues by encouraging the agency to shift attention and blame away from sugar-sweetened beverages." politico.com/story/2019/01/… @politico
@CDCgov has no chance. @CocaCola and @ILSI_Global (which was started by Coca Cola) and represents #BigFood under the auspices of 'research' continue to influence @CDCgov @CDCGlobal messages. Follow the money and the lobbyists.

We know this 2013 dietary guideline does not work.
Please do the NHMRC survey in the next 24 hours and make a case for reviewing #Meat #Salt #Cereal #Fat in 2021. @DrPeterBrukner @MueckeDr & I have drafted a letter with options for you - follow the thread.
A review of the Australian Dietary Guidelines has commenced and we are writing to inform you on how you can participate.
Together, we will be advocating for a review process that is independent, free from conflicts of interest and relevant to all Australians.
It’s vital we call out the influence of commercial interests in the procurement of scientific evidence that impacts our health.
The scoping survey is the first step, and it closes on 3pm AEST, Monday 15 March. It has two key questions that will drive the direction of the review.
