University Returns $1 Million Grant to Coca-Cola Over Questionable Research

The University Of Colorado School Of Medicine has returned a $1 million grant to the Coca-Cola Company after media outlets raised concern that the money was used to fund an advocacy group that downplayed the link between obesity and soft-drink consumption. Coke donated the money in 2014 to establish the Global Energy Balance Network, a non-profit organization that encourages people to focus more on tackling excessive weight gain by focusing more on exercise than a healthy diet.
