Obesity Caused by Chicken Dishes and Grains, Says Coca-Cola

Really? Really. Photo: Coca Cola

Coca-Cola released a ridiculous "Calorie Balance" infographic that blames the obesity epidemic on everything but soda. Chicken, bread, and grain-based desserts are listed as the top three calorie contributors, ignoring the fact that they provide protein, fiber, and other nutrients. And according to Coca-Cola, you're to blame for sleeping and being sedentary all the damn time (Marion Nestle says, "Coca-Cola: obesity is your fault, not ours"). This is all part of the company's misguided "Coming Together" campaign. Check out a larger photo of the infographic after the jump.
