How Chummy Are Junk Food Giants and China’s Health Officials? They Share Offices

“China’s fitness-is-best message, as it happens, has largely been the handiwork of Coca-Cola and other Western food and beverage giants, according to a pair of new studies that document how those companies have helped shape decades of Chinese science and public policy on obesity and diet-related illnesses like Type 2 diabetes and hypertension."

Making China Safe for Coke: How Coca-Cola Shaped Obesity Science and Policy in China

2

“Coke’s recipe for success in China relies on more than cultivating political relationships and strategic localisation of products and marketing. Through a complex web of institutional, financial, and personal links, Coke has been able to influence China’s health policies. … 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 U.S., is housed within the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a unit of the government health ministry.”

Exercise Is Medicine seems to use a formal fallacy (see 190119). Healthy people are active so if you are active you are healthy. This is horrible because it does look like they are trying to "help" the public health were all they try to do is shift the focus away from he real problem : bad diet with too much refine carbs and sugar.

It is time this changes. We would never let a alcool compagnie in charge of conducting the studies of the effect of drinking and driving. Why would we let Sugary Drinks control what we drink? Worst what we should believe!

Would you be able to keep a running list of athletes who have qualified for the 2019 games? It’s hard to find that info.

I commented on this article in the BMJ quick responses section, and Dr. Greenhalgh responded in turn. Here is the link:

https://www.bmj.com/content/364/bmj.k5050/rapid-responses


Her article and the accompanying press coverage give the impression that ILSI China enjoys "unparalleled access to government officials." This overlooks, however that ILSI China's leadership has overlapped with the Chinese government's public health personnel. That phenomenon continues to this day.


Moreover, this pattern of ILSI-government overlap is not specific to China; we have also discovered it in Malaysia, South Africa, and the United States. That is to say, wherever we have looked closely.


Please see the link above for more details.

Behind three weeks:

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:

1 squat snatch

3 clean and jerks

30 double-unders


Men: 155 lb.

Women: 105 lb.


Scaled to 115lbs like last year: 9 rounds+5 reps

Had a headache going into the warmup and first round but oddly it went away. Jerks were more like push presses for comfort on the shoulder. PR by 2 rounds!

Sitting here wondering if the meals put on main site the last couple weeks is compatible zone meals. The food is wonderful but the amount of carbs seem very low compared to zone standard?

I asked a similar question when the first video came out and I received a few replies that it was more about just showing people how to eat real food.

That makes sense, thank you.

It made me a bit confused since I struggle in eating enough carbs as it is, and main site promoting baby spinach didn’t exactly make it easier to fill the quota..

This new site and realignment back to the ‘roots’ of CrossFit certainly has my full attention and respect. I was fortunate enough to be shocked by my own self decrepidation 5 years ago when I found CrossFit. And now I don’t have to look beyond my immediate family, friends and co-workers to see that my ‘intervention’ could be another person’s fortune. Grateful for the focus back to what we need.
