Obesity is an increasing problem. It has gotten so bad that obesity is now a bigger problem than hunger. Soft drinks, such as coca cola, play a big role in this. Back in the 50′s people had pop as a treat and only on special occasions, now we are drinking 2 liters of Mountain Dew a day. So coca cola and other people are doing something about it. They are releasing a new ad campaign about it, decreasing portion sizes, and putting the calorie count on the front of the bottle. The CSPI says that this is just a damage control exercise, but coca cola promises it is not.
This is a good article. It is well written and to the point. What coca cola is doing is good for America. I rarely drink soda so I have no problem agreeing with them when they say we should go back to soda being a treat, not a part of our daily diet. All in all this article is very good though, I do find some details slightly irrelevant though. I don’t necessarily need to know that a certain doctor wrote a book on the subject of obesity. Nevertheless it is nice they added that and I’m sure someone used that information, so it doesn’t take away from my experience with the article.
One thing I want to know is, how far is coca cola willing to go to help with the obesity problem? Why did we let it get to be this big of a problem? Is there anything extra we as citizens could do? Why isn’t the government doing anything about this? Other than that I have no questions, this article did a pretty good job of answering everything.
