Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 10, 2019

Coke has been able to influence China's health policies. The company has cleverly manoeuvered itself into a position of behind-the-scenes power that ensures that government policy to fight the growing obesity epidemic does not undermine its interests. It has done this by leveraging the Chinese branch of an organisation it created to advance its interests around the world. The International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), set up by a Coke executive 40 years ago in the US, is housed within the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a unit of the government health ministry. The staff of the industry funded ILSI-China have unparalleled access to government officials, and the organisation established itself as a premiere scientific body capable of providing access to the best that Western science has to offer.
