Pepsi and Coke both sell "natural" food smoothies and other products
under the brands
Both of these so called health food
brands have been around for some time now, yet most people are
completely in the dark about the corporations behind these
Pepsi and Coke only pretend to support healthy food choices.
Both of the industry giants donated
millions to defeat proposition 37, the GMO labeling act. And lets
not forget, these are the owners of the two biggest soft drinks
partially responsible for our country's all time high rates of
obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
Unfortunately most consumers are tricked
into thinking they are doing something good for their health when
they drink a Naked or Odwalla juice.
Lets look at
In its early days, Odwalla was a
small company owned by a few individuals that made real, raw
food juices. Since its acquisition by Coca Cola in 2001,
almost everything has changed.
Naked juice was sued for
knowingly using GMOs in its juice, when it advertised as
"all natural" and "Non-GMO."
Neither of these food drinks use
organic produce, which means you're ingesting pesticides.
Naked juice was found to contain
fructooligosaccharides, fibersol-2 and inulin; three
Both Naked and Odwalla juices
are pasteurized, meaning most of the nutrients in them have
already been destroyed before they ever reach store shelves.
Both products feature the words
All Natural which means exactly nothing, as they can contain
pesticides, artificial ingredients, GMOs and are
For less than the cost of these
over priced faux health drinks you can buy organic produce
and make your own organic, GMO-free juice that contains many
times more more nutrients.
Both Pepsi and Coca Cola sell a few
other "healthy" brands.
By boycotting these brands it will allow
you to support real organic brands such as:
Remember, if the product you're buying
doesn't specify Non-GMO and/or organic, it most likely is not.
The best option, as always, is to buy
from your local farmers. Although these whole foods are not usually
USDA certified organic, they
are the true organics.
The lesson here is that you must question everything that
you put into your body. Corporations only see the bottom line
and are not looking out for your health, but rather trying to take
advantage of your trust.
You must investigate all so
called health foods because many of them turn out be nothing more
than a scam.
