There’s a new ally in the war on weight gain, and it’s coming from a corner not many people might expect.

FOX News Radio’s Kerin McCue reports:

Audio clip:

(Coca-Cola Ad) “Across our portfolio of more than 650 beverages, we now offer over 180 low- and no-calorie choices.”

Coca-Cola, the maker of the world’s #1 soft drink, is on your side! ┬áThe Atlanta-based beverage maker will be airing a two-minute spot in response to industry-wide pressure blaming sugary drinks for helping folks to pack on the pounds. ┬áBut, they warn, it’s not ALL their fault.

(Coca-Cola Ad) “And if you eat and drink more calories than you burn off, you’ll gain weight.”

But Mike Jacobsen, Executive Director for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, is skeptical, saying they’re trying to “disarm the public.”
