The World Health Organization is Taking Cash Handouts from Junk Food Giants

Print Friendly and PDF

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the United Nation’s “public health” arm and has 194 member states. While its official mission is “the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health“, it is also clear that it works according to a specific agenda, one that laid out by the world elite and the organizations that are part of it. In the article entitled ‘Contagion’ or How Disaster Movies “Educate” the Masses, we’ve seen how the WHO was involved in the promotion of mass vaccination campaigns following (bogus) disease scares, of civilian camps, of the bar-coding of individuals and so forth.

More proof of the WHO’s “elite bias” has been recently uncovered by a study: The organization has been taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from the world’s biggest pushers of unhealthy foods such as Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Unilever. It is relying on these companies for advice on how to fight obesity..é which is the equivalent of asking a drug dealer for advice on how stay off drugs and NOT buy his product.

Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Unilever are not simply “food companies, they are gigantic conglomerates that produce and distribute an enormous proportion of processed foods across the world. In the article entitled Irrational Consumerism (or The Few Companies Who Feed the World), I described how only a few mega-conglomerates own most of the world’s brands of processed foods. To refresh your memory here are some of the brands owned by Nestlé:

The brands owned by Coca-Cola are too numerous to list but you might already know that the company has a stronghold on sugary drinks across the world, whether we look at soft-drinks, juices or energy drinks.

The owners of these companies are not only businessmen but participants in elite forums such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg group. They have a say in the forming of social and economic policies across the world.

With funding coming directly from these conglomerates, we have another proof that the WHO is not truly attempting to make the world a healthier place. It is rather shaping the world’s health according to the interests and the Agenda of the world elite. Do you really need an international organization to help you stay healthy? Simply staying of the toxic foods sold by those who fund the WHO is an incredibly good start.

Here’s an article on the WHO receiving money from major junk-food distributors.

World Health Organisation ‘taking cash handouts from Coca-Cola to plug black holes in budget’

 The Pan American office has accepted $50,000 from Coca-Cola, $150,000 from Nestle and $150,000 from Unilever

 It has also been relying on the food and beverage industry for advice on how to fight obesity

The World Health Organisation has taken thousands of pounds from food companies such as Coca-Cola and Nestle.

A regional WHO office has also taken donations from Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and Unilever, according to a study.

The Pan American office – known as PAHO – has received £35,000 in donations from Coca-Cola, £100,000 from  Nestle and a similar amount from Unilever.

The WHO is the public health arm of the UN and fights chronic ailments such as diabetes and heart disease, caused primarily by unhealthy diets.

The Pan American Health Organisation has also been relying on the food and beverage industry for advice on how to fight obesity.

Accepting industry funding goes against WHO’s worldwide policies.

The Pan American office – known as PAHO, based in Washington – has so far accepted $50,000 from Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage company, $150,000 from Nestle, the world’s largest food company, and $150,000 from Unilever, whose brands include Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and Popsicles.

The cash donations were described by Irene Klinger, a senior adviser for partnerships in PAHO, as ‘a new way of doing business.’ However, she insisted WHO is careful to maintain control of its policy decisions.

WHO is increasingly relying on ‘partnerships’ with the industry, instead of maintaining neutrality like it always has done, to fill holes in its budget. However, it still refuses to partner with the tobacco industry.

Since 2010 WHO has cut its own funding for chronic disease programs by 20 per cent. These diseases cause 63 per cent of premature deaths worldwide, but the WHO department in charge of fighting them receives just six percent of the UN’s budget.

Boyd Swinburn, an Australian professor and longtime member of WHO’s nutrition advisory committees, said: ‘WHO is getting hijacked. They’re cash-strapped, and they’re bringing the private sector in. That’s very dangerous.’

However, Jorge Casimiro, Coca-Cola’s director of international government relations and public affairs, said: ‘It’s about the convergence of the interests. What we’re trying to say is we’re ready to take action. We’re companies who want to do this. We’re ready to go.’

Meanwhile, Coca-Cola has also placed a top official on the steering board for WHO’s Pan American Forum for Action on Non-Communicable Diseases, a group that helps determine how WHO fights obesity in Mexico.

WHO’s Geneva headquarters and five other regional offices have been stopped from accepting money from the food and soda industries, among others.

Spokesman Gregory Härtl said: ‘If such conflicts of interest were perceived to exist, or actually existed, this would jeopardize WHO’s ability to set globally recognized and respected standards and guidelines.’

It has also emerged that at least two of specially appointed nutrition advisers working on behalf of WHO had direct financial ties to the food industry.

Murray Skeaff, a New Zealand professor, received research money from Unilever, the conglomerate with $60 billion sales last year.

Esté Vorster, a South African professor, advised a sugar association and took travel and ‘after hours’ money to judge a contest for Nestle. Vorster said she does not participate in discussing the sugar guideline.
