Via Marion Nestle, I found out that the American Association of Family Physicians has taken money from none other than Coca Cola for the "development of educational materials to teach consumers how to make the right choices and incorporate the products they love into a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle."

Wow.  So the doctors have apparently given up and are now siding with the bad guys.  "Empty calories are good for you and Coke will give us money to conduct studies to show that's true."  Are you guys going to "partner" next with the tobacco companies?  What word comes to mind...

Oh yeah, whore.

I can't think of anything else to say -- I'm just stunned.

These were sold in Ireland for a while...
