Coca-Cola and the AAFP


The American Academy of Family Physicians and the Coca-Cola Company will be able to continue their unholy matrimony thanks to the rejection a resolution calling on AAFP to not renew its relationship with them. From this article:

Dr. Robert E. Reneker Jr., a delegate from Michigan, said that he was voting in favor of the relationship based on its financial benefits

How is it that the AAFP even needs more money?  What a joke.  They pass broad guidelines on individual doctor efforts but I guess what is good for the gander is not good for the goose.

      Criminally corrupt or mouth-breather ignorant? I’ve never been able to decide.
