In case you missed it on our www.KicktheCan.info website, we invite you to check out a recent blog written by CCPHA’s Executive Director, Dr. Harold Goldstein.
The blog is a response to the Chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola, Muhtar Kent issuing an apology after the company was caught pouring millions of dollars into a group that promotes so-called "energy balance" as the key to preventing disease and maintaining a healthy weight.
