Exclamation The Dark Side Of Vitaminwater

By John Robbins -- Aug. 5, 2010

Now here's something you wouldn't expect. Coca-Cola is being sued by a non-profit public interest group, on the grounds that the company's vitaminwater products make unwarranted health claims. No surprise there. But how do you think the company is defending itself?

In a staggering feat of twisted logic, lawyers for Coca-Cola are defending the lawsuit by asserting that "no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage."

Does this mean that you'd have to be an unreasonable person to think that a product named "vitaminwater," a product that has been heavily and aggressively marketed as a healthy beverage, actually had health benefits...?

...Noting that the soft drink giant wasn't (was not) claiming the lawsuit was wrong on factual grounds, the judge wrote that, "Accordingly, I must accept the factual allegations in the complaint as true."

Yup. Read it the other day when it first came out in the news. It doesn't matter because I already knew it though. You mean to tell me that a major corporation would market sugar water as healthy? No way!

I was recently having a discussion with two guys who said they were overweight, stopped drinking soda, and lost like 100 to 200 lbs. quickly.
