If you really want to give your baby a head start in life by improving their social standing and guaranteeing their happiness, start feeding them Coca-Cola, Pepsi and other sugary carbonated beverages at the earliest age possible. Even babies as young as a few months old will enjoy the many benefits of soda pop.
Sound bizarre? That’s the message the Soda Pop Board of America promoted back in the 1950′s. Here’s the actual text from a full-page ad:

For a better start in life, Start COLA earlier!
How soon is too soon?
Not soon enough. Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and “fitting in” during those awkward pre-teen and teen years.
So, do yourself a favor. Do your child a favor. Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other sugary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness.
The Soda Pop Board of America
1515 W. Hart Ave – Chicago, IL
- Promotes Active Lifestyle!
- Boosts Personality!
- Gives body essential sugars!
This marketing of harmful products to infants and toddlers sounds eerily familiar to the marketing tactics exploited by Big Pharma and its psychiatric drugs today. The words are almost exactly the same: “A lifetime of guaranteed happiness” echoes the marketing of any number of drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta or other psychotropic drugs.
Soda companies, much like drug companies, have relentlessly tried to convince parents that forcing their products onto their children is a smart thing to do. Do you see how drinking soda was linked to “fitting in” during the teen years? It’s clever, covert persuasion: Your child will be “cool” if you feed him soda pop as an infant. But if you don’t, your child may be an outcast!
It’s the same with psychiatric drugs today: If you don’t put your child on Concerta or other mind-altering drugs, they won’t succeed in school! Or they’ll be hated by their teachers…
It’s all the same mind-game marketing, just dressed up with new chemicals.
What about obesity?
Did you notice that the Soda Pop Board of America somehow neglected to tell parents that feeding their babies sugary carbonated beverages may result in:
• Loss of bone density
• Dental cavities
• Nutritional deficiencies
These “side effects” of consuming soda pop are mysteriously never mentioned. (Gee, I wonder why?)
Similarly, modern-day drug companies never tell parents the truth about how psychiatric drugs may cause:
• Suicidal thoughts
• Violent behavior
• Stunted brain development
In both cases — soda pop companies and pharmaceutical companies — their job is to mislead parents into feeding their children poisons that just happen to generate huge profits for the companies doing the advertising.
The whole point of much of the advertising that goes on today is to mislead and mis-inform parents so that they make purchasing and consumption decisions that stand in contradiction to their own interests.
