Coca Cola Science – level 2

31-05-2019 15:00

According to a research report, Coca Cola can review and possibly repress its health research. It can also cancel research if it is not good for the company.

This could lead to publication bias. However, the researchers do not think that Coca Cola did this. Coca Cola says that it does not have the right to stop the publishing of studies. Nevertheless, researchers are worried and are asking Coca Cola and other companies to show their lists of cancelled studies.

Difficult words: research (a scientific study of something), repress (keep quiet), publication bias (when you only publish/show the things that you want to show to other people to make something look good).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
