PostSubject: 'We're losing more people to the sweets than to the streets': Why two superstitious black pastors are suing Coca-Cola   Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:59 am

William Lamar, the senior pastor at DC's historic Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, is tired of presiding over funerals for parishioners who died of heart disease, diabetes and stroke.



So on Thursday, he and another prominent African-American pastor filed suit against Coca-Cola and the American Beverage Association, claiming soft drink manufacturers knowingly deceived customers about the health risks of sugar-sweetened beverages - at enormous cost to their communities.

The complaint, filed in DC Superior Court on behalf of the pastors and the Praxis project, a public health group in the US, alleges that Coke and the association ran an intentional campaign to confuse consumers about the causes of obesity.

Lamar and Delman Coates, pastor at Mt Ennon Baptist Church in suburban Clinton, Maryland, claim soft drink marketing has made it harder to protect the health of their largely black, DC-based parishioners.
