Tom Brady Attacks Coca-Cola and Frosted Flakes
It is great to hear someone in the public eye speaking the truth. I think we all know the truth but we are mostly brainwashed and can barely remember what it is. In this video (see below), we hear how Tom Brady (apparently the most well know quarter-back in American Football) has spoken out calling Coca-Cola and Frosted Flakes “poison for kids” (a view even shared by doctors like Robert Lustig) and suggesting that they shouldn’t be allowed to advertise these products through American Football.
Tom says “All those companies make lots of money selling those things. They have lots of money to advertise” and “That’s what we get brainwashed to believe, that all these things are just normal food groups.”
Coca-Cola and Kellogg’s fight back of course. Coca-Cola says “…all of its beverages are safe and can be enjoyed as part of a balanced lifestyle”. This is the same as saying that it’s safe in small doses, which is the same as saying it’s not really safe at all.
It’s worth watching until the panel discussion after the Tom Brady story. A doctor says “I know the issues with sugar” and “advertising makes a really big difference”. He says that weight gain, diabetes, heart disease are all adversely affected by sugar – it used to be all about fat, now it’s pointing toward sugar.
The real story behind all of this is that sugar is a drug. Potentially the most dangerous drug in our society today. We all think it’s innocent and nice, but it’s not. We’re not meant to be eating sugar like we do and getting it out of our lives, and out of our children’s lives, would make us much healthier.
