CrossFit Catches ACSM In Lie And Cover-Up About Exercise Is Medicine

6

Coca-Cola and its proxies persistently attempt to influence science to shift the blame for obesity away from bad diets. One such proxy — founded by Coke and its loyal partner the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) — is Exercise is Medicine, an initiative designed to influence the medical establishment, cast doubt on the relationship between nutrition and obesity, and muzzle fitness trainers. To conceal this dubious history, ACSM claims it founded Exercise is Medicine with the American Medical Association, ignoring Coke's founding role. ACSM-affiliated scientists continue to repeat this false claim, despite CrossFit's repeated correction.

What is the name of the journal that published the study? BMC? When authors of a paper ignore being caught in a lie, couldn't the journal that published the paper be notified to remove the paper?

The Journal is the 2018, Volume 19 edition of BMC Nephrology. We have submitted for a correction/retraction. Thank you for noticing this Michael.

EIM is a trojan horse to health and wellness and I am extremely on board with CF uncovering the truth behind this scam.

Great article! Very eye-opening. Although I did notice a discrepancy in the time stamps of those emails and the order they were used in the article. It seems F. Lobelo sent his email “please ignore this” at 20:07, 22 minutes before R. Jagannathan’s email “how do you want to handle this” at 20:29. I agree they’re up to no good, but these emails don’t seem to be in response to one another.

You are correct Gretchen. They are not in response to each other. They are not presented as such either. For background, Lobelo sent the “ignore” email to CrossFit accidentally, instead of to his co-author. Hence his co-author’s subsequent question.
