Cure-Alls & Snake-Oil?
Coca-Colatm is being sued by a non-profit public interest group, on the grounds that the company's vitamin water products make unwarranted health claims. Okay. So how do you suppose that Big Business is defending itself? In a feat of skewed logic, lawyers for Coketm are defending the company by asserting this thinking:
"No consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitamin water was a healthy beverage."
Does that mean that a consumer would have to be "unreasonable" to in order to come to the conclusion that a product named "vitamin water" (products that have been aggressively marketed as a healthy beverage), actually HAVE health benefits? Snake oil by another name?
That IS perfect crazy insanity ... Me Thinks!
