Just When the Science Was Settled…

Government science can’t even decide if skipping breakfast is good or bad.

In a move reminiscent of the tobacco industry evoking science to move its product, Coca-Cola has turned to science to prove that soda is not the cause of obesity — the lack of exercise is. The New York Times reports, “Health experts say this message is misleading and part of an effort by Coke to deflect criticism about the role sugary drinks have played in the spread of obesity and Type 2 diabetes.” It’s yet another attempt to use Science™ as propaganda to advance a cause — just like the government has said “the science is settled” when it comes to the issue of global warming. But while the government insists human industry is the cause of rising temperatures and government must restructure the economy as a result, keep in mind that government science can’t even decide if skipping breakfast is good or bad. While the government has said in the past that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, one that would stabilize the body’s metabolism, a recent study found that those who skipped breakfast either lost or maintained their weight. While the government is questioning its stance on eating bacon first thing in the morning, remember: You can trust them on global warming.
