Artificial Ingredients in Coca-Cola Marketed as Natural is Misbranding and Illegal
If there’s one thing most people would agree on, it’s that a soda is not the embodiment of “natural.” But that’s just what Coca-Cola is suggesting in recent advertising campaigns—that its original formula soda, laden with high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients, is natural; and now disgruntled customers have sued the brand.
The suit, filed by two Massachusetts residents, says that the brand has been portraying its sodas as “natural” despite the presence of artificial ingredients, some of which are linked with serious health problems.
According the plaintiffs, the company’s soda sales are being “fueled by false and deceptive representations that Coca-Cola is not only a healthy product, but one free of artificial flavoring and chemical preservatives,” they state in the lawsuit. “All containers of Coca-Cola sold in the United States are misbranded and illegal.”

7 Great Vegan Restaurants in LA
As a cardiologist and a strong advocate of plant-based nutrition (it's the only diet ever shown to reverse existing heart artery blockages), I was more than a little excited when a friend called a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to go to dinner with Brian Wendel, the executive producer of the smash hit Forks Over Knives. I'm such a fan of this documentary about veganism that I require my patients to watch it with their families.
My wife and I were recently in Los Angeles for 24 hours (I had a brief business meeting) and we were excited to check out the city's vegan offerings. So I did some research and decided to plan a marathon tasting.
