Narrator: For over 125 years, we've been bringing people together. Today we'd like to come together on something that concerns all of us: obesity. The long-term health of our families and the country are at stake. And as the nation's leading beverage company, we have played an important role.
Across our portfolio of over 650 beverages, we now offer 180 low- and no-calorie choices. These diet beverages still pose serious health risks. Even though we've reduced the calories per serving, these beverages can still cause kidney problems, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cell damage and rotting teeth which leaves 470 beverages which have extremely high unhealthy levels of calories.
Consuming large amounts of rapidly-digested sugar and high fructose corn syrup causes a spike in blood sugar and insulin, which can lead to inflammation and insulin resistance, both of which may increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer. Coke has also been known to accelerate aging and cause high cholesterol. The American Heart Association recommends consuming no more than 450 calories from sugar-sweetened beverages per week. The amount in about 3 cans of soda.
Imagine if cigarette companies said they were doing something responsible to protect you. How would you react to that? Beating obesity will take action by all of us based on one simple, common-sense fact: all calories are not the same. And the calories in Coca-Cola products have no nutritional value.
If you choose to live a healthy lifestyle, then you should not be drinking any of our products. If you drink Coke, you'll get fatter and fatter. The solution is simple and it's right in front of your eyes: don't drink Coke. It's killing you and your family. Coca-Cola. We are partially responsible for America's obesity problem.There may be small errors in this transcript.
