What do the American Diabetes Association a Cadbury Schweppes have in common?

The ADA [American Diabetes Association] was severely criticised in 2005 after its chief scientific and medical officer [Dr. Richard Kahn], speaking to Corporate Crime Reporter, said "What is the evidence that sugar itself has anything to do with diabetes? There is no evidence. There is not a shred of evidence that sugar, per se, has anything to do with getting diabetes." The statement was particularly controversial because it came less than a month after Cadbury Schweppes, the [giant] candy and soda company, had given a multimillion-dollar grant to the ADA.
