THE CLAIM

“Fight Heart Disease by Drinking Diet Coke”

THE TRUTH

You can help to spread awareness about the impact of heart disease on women by purchasing and drinking one of the most unhealthy beverages available. Diet beverages, especially zero calorie sodas, don’t offer any nutritional value and are full of potentially harmful additives and artificial sweeteners. Diet Coke in particular contains aspartame which is one of the most notorious sweeteners on the market.

It would make a lot more sense to associate foods like fruits and vegetables with such a program, but I guess the red dress goes better with the red Coke label than it does with yellow, orange, or green fruits and vegetables.
