Is this a joke? New packaging for Diet Coke aims to inspire heart-health awareness

To bring heart health into the spotlight during February, American Heart Month, Diet Coke is distributing special limited-edition packaging. The new packaging is part of The Coca-Cola Company's efforts in partnership with Heidi Klum and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in a national heart health awareness campaign called The Heart Truth. 

The limited-edition packaging graphically depicts one person's journey from heart health awareness to empowerment to advocacy with an eye-catching large red heart as a major graphic element. The Heart Truth's Red Dress logo also appears on each limited-edition can; the logo also will appear on more than 6 billion packages of Diet Coke throughout the year.

Klum will model for the Diet Coke sponsored Red Dress Collection Fashion Show on February 11, which kick-offs Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. "The Heart Truth movement is near and dear to my heart, and I'm honored once again to join Diet Coke as their ambassador for the program," says Klum.

The Coca-Cola Company states that heart disease is the No. 1 killer among women, and The Heart Truth campagin has doubled awareness of the dangers of heart disease for women since the campaign's debut.

If you are using aspartame and have headaches, depresion, slurred speech loss of memory, fibromyalgia, loss of sensation or shooting pains in the lower legs, loss of equilibrium, vertigo, anxiety attacks, crhonic fatigue, vision loss, floaters, retinal detachment, seizures or heart palpitations you may have ASPARTAME DISEASE! Many physicians diagnose as multiple sclerosis what is simply methanol poisoning from aspartame, mimicking MS. Get off this killer drug now! MS is not a death sentence but methanol poisoning is! CARDIAC ALERT: aspartame triggers abnormal heart action, can lead to complete heart failure, sudden death!
