In an unexpected move, celebrity football star Tom Brady recently joined the ranks of countless health experts and activists by denouncing the popular soft drink Coca-Cola, calling it “poison.”

In an interview with Boston sports radio station WEEI, Brady said, “You’ll probably go out and drink Coca-Cola and think, ‘oh yeah, that’s no problem.’ Why? Because they pay lots of money for advertisements to think that you should drink Coca-Cola for a living? No, I totally disagree with that.”

Probably sensing the gravity of this celebrity dis-endorsement, Coca-Cola immediately responded with a statement:

“All of our beverages are safe and can be enjoyed as part of a balanced lifestyle. We offer more than 200 low and no-calorie beverages in the U.S. and Canada and a wide variety of smaller portion sizes of our regular drinks. As a responsible beverage provider and marketer, we prominently provide calorie and sugar information for our beverages so people can choose what makes sense for them and their families.”

Of course, health experts have known for years that sugary soft drinks like Coca-Cola present a myriad of health problems. Just this year, a new study confirmed that sugary sweetened beverages, or SSBs, contribute directly to 184,000 deaths every year
