In California, a complaint filed in a California federal court charges that The Coca-Cola Company, with the help of the American Beverage Association, is deceiving consumers about the harms of consuming Coke and other sugar-sweetened beverages.  The suit charges that the beverage giant and its trade association are engaged in an unlawful campaign of deception to mislead and confuse the public about the science linking consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of the nonprofit Praxis Project, centers around the claim that Coca-Cola and the ABA mislead consumers by claiming that there is no science linking sugar-sweetened beverages to obesity and related diseases.  According to the suit, Coke and the ABA have adopted a strategy of shifting the focus away for these conditions from sugar-sweetened beverages toward a lack of exercise.  The campaign strategy also led consumers to believe that all calories are the same, when science indicates that sugary drinks play a distinct role in the obesity epidemic.

The complaint alleges that Coke launched a sophisticated integrated marketing plan by funding and publicizing biased scientific research,  orchestrating a drumbeat of deceptive ABA press releases on science and health, and running false and misleading advertising campaigns.  Citing a report in the New York Times, the suit contends that between 2010 and 2015 alone, Coca-Cola spent $120 million on research and other projects aimed at confusing consumers about, or denying, the science linking health risks to soda and other sugary drinks.

The trend is now unmistakable. We’ve seen it here at Syfo and recent data confirms it — more and more people are turning to healthy beverage choices as sales flow away from soda and other sugary soft drinks.

The market research firm Mintel reported that sales in the sparkling/mineral water/seltzer segment grew a whopping 75% last year. Mintel also found that 48% of bottled water drinkers in the United States said they are drinking more flavored waters to replace sugary drinks. The entire bottled water category, which includes sparkling water, is expected to grow at a 35% clip through 2020.

To further underline this trend, The Beverage Marketing Corp. reported that sales volume of soft drinks in the United States fell 1.5% in 2015, dropping their market share of liquid refreshment beverages below 40%. And the main concern driving consumers from soda appears to be sugar. Sugar content influenced the purchasing decision of soft drinks for 57% of consumers in the United States, according to a 2015 survey from Innova Market Insights.

Syfo has been ahead of this trend for many years. Our Original Seltzer and Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters contain no sugar or artificial sweeteners and never have. Made from 100% purified water with no sodium, preservatives or other additives, Syfo is the healthy choice consumers have been turning to since 1949.

The overwhelming majority of health studies in recent years (60 in all) have shown a clear link between sugary soft drinks and obesity as well as Type 2 diabetes. Still, people in the soda industry point to a minority of studies (26) that have established no link. The sponsors of those studies? The soda industry itself.

According to the New York Times, these studies were all carried out by researchers with financial ties to the beverage industry. The findings were published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

The report’s findings are the latest evidence that the beverage industry has supported research to downplay the health hazards of sugary drinks. Nutrition experts say that the studies financed by the soda industry have been used to influence public policy and nutrition recommendations.

The industry has also used other tactics to influence legislation and public opinion. In an earlier article, the New York Times outlined how Coca Cola and PepsiCo have contributed to organizations that promote health and nutrition while simultaneously lobbying vigorously against healthy diet initiatives in Washington.

The best thing that consumers can do is to read as much independent information as they can to make smart beverage choices. Syfo Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters are made with 100% purified water and don’t have any preservatives, artificial sweeteners, sugar or sodium. That makes Syfo always a good choice.
