Coca-Cola Shaped China’s Efforts To Fight Obesity

The Coca-Cola company exerted strong influence over the way the Chinese government addressed the country’s growing obesity problem, according to a study published Wednesday in the Journal of Public Health Policy and the BMJ.

Greenhalgh’s years-long investigation unraveled the complex personal, institutional and financial connections the soda company cultivated to align Chinese science and policy with the interest in building a market for Coke in China.

“I was surprised here at the extent to which Coke was able to penetrate the government,” said Paulo Serôdio, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Barcelona who studies how corporations influence science and policy. “The study gives us an interesting and important insight on the extent to which corporations can influence public policy in other countries where there is less scrutiny.”
