The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has long proclaimed it does not accept corporate money, yet it’s bankrolled by billionaires and their corporate entities, such as the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Family Fund and Bloomberg Philanthropies, as well as the American Heart Association, which in turn has received financial backing by the makers of Crisco

CSPI has a long history protecting and promoting foods known for their potentially adverse health impacts, including artificial sweeteners, trans fats, soy, genetically engineered (GE) foods and fake meats

To this day, CSPI promotes diet soda as a safer alternative to regular soda, claiming it “does not promote diabetes, weight gain or heart disease in the way that full-calorie sodas do”

CSPI was instrumental in driving the anti-GMO labeling campaign forward, which ultimately resulted in the United States being the only country in the world that does not have clear GMO labeling

Up until 1993, CSPI promoted trans fats over saturated fats, and in 1995 launched a campaign urging people to switch from whole and 2% milk to skim milk in order to reduce their saturated fat intake. Research, however, shows full-fat dairy actually lowers your risk of death from diabetes and cardiovascular causes such as stroke
