Yini abaholi bemboni yokudla abacabanga ngayo ngempela ngesayensi, ezempilo yomphakathi kanye nezinhlangano zezokwelapha?

Okusha cwaningo kumagazini i-Critical Public Health, osuselwa embhalweni obhalwe ngumholi omkhulu we-Coca-Cola nomholi wemboni yezokudla, ubeka okubonakala kuyindlela yomkhakha wezokudla ekubhekaneni nezinselelo zomhlaba jikelele zesayensi, zokulawula nezempilo yomphakathi kanye nobudlelwano bomphakathi. I- Umbhalo itholwe nge-state FOIA yi-US Right to Know, iqembu elibheka imboni yezokudla.

Lo mbhalo uchaza ukuthi abaholi bemboni yezokudla “kumele basebenzise kanjani izinhlangano zangaphandle” lapho bebhekene nezingxabano mayelana nobungozi bezempilo kwimikhiqizo yabo.

"Lo mbhalo ushaya phansi ngonyawo ngoba ukhombisa ukuthi imboni yezokudla icabanga kanjani ngemiphakathi yezempilo kanye nezempilo yomphakathi njengabasebenzi," kusho uGary Ruskin, umqondisi-ndawonye we-US Right to Know. "Kubalulekile ukuthi ochwepheshe bezempilo nabomphakathi bazi ukuthi imboni yezokudla ibaphatha kanjani - njengezinsimbi ezizosetshenziswa ngendlela epholile - ukuze bangaweli ezingibeni zemboni."

Lolu cwaningo luthi: “Leli phepha linikeza ubufakazi obuqondile bokuthi abaholi abaphezulu embonini yezokudla bayayisekela indlela ngamabomu futhi ehlelekile yokuthonya ubufakazi besayensi nemibono yochwepheshe. Okubalulekile, imboni yezokudla ifuna ukukwenza lokhu ngokuhlanganisa oxhumana nabo ezifundweni, ngokungena ezinhlanganweni ezinkulu zesayensi nezinhlangano zezokwelapha, nangokuba nomthelela ekwakhiweni kobufakazi besayensi. ”

Ucwaningo, olunesihloko esithi “Izinkampani Zokudla Zibuthonya Kanjani Ubufakazi Nemibono - Kususelwa Emlonyeni Wehhashi, ”Kuhlaziya i-imeyili ebhalwe nguMichael Ernest Knowles, owayeyiphini likamongameli wezindaba zesayensi nezomthetho zomhlaba wonke eCoca-Cola, nowayengumongameli we-International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), iqembu eliphambili lezimboni zokudla. Le imeyili yathunyelwa ku-Alex Malaspina, owayeyiphini likamongameli omkhulu weCoca-Cola, nowayengumongameli nomsunguli we-ILSI.
