Conflicted nutrition interests in the midst of Covid-19
Simón Barquera, who directs the Center for Research on Nutrition and Health at the National Institute of Public Health in Cuernavaca, sent me a copy of this letter, which he found on Twitter (but it’s no longer there):
It’s from the president of the Mexican Society of Nutrition and Endocrinology thanking Coca-Cola for donating Personal Protective Equipment to deal with Covid-19.
The Mexican Nutrition Society has a cozy relationship with Coca-Cola?
I wonder what that’s all about.
Conflicts of interest anyone?
