One thing that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is definitely against is junk food.

In an interview with WEEI radio station on Monday, Brady tagged Coca-Cola as a "poison" especially for kids.

"The fact that they can sell that, you know, to kids, that's, I mean that's poison for kids, but they keep doing it," the quarterback added.

Brady has two sons and a daughter with supermodel Gisele Bundchen and he can't seem to end his tirades on these commercial junk food as he also took a swipe on breakfast cereals.

"That's just America and that's what we've been conditioned to so, you know, we believe that Frosted Flakes are actually, is a food," Brady was quoted by ABC News as saying.

Meanwhile, People said that these products were made to taste good so that companies can make a lot of money from them.

The Patriots quarterback also noted that companies selling these types of food fool consumers with false advertisements of their products.

"All those companies make lots of money selling those things. They have lots of money to advertise, you know? When you go to the Super Bowl, it's you know, that's who are the sponsors. That's the education that we get. That's what we get brainwashed to believe," he furthered.

He then became more specific noting that Coca-Cola even make consumers think that people should drink their product for a living.

"No, I totally disagree with that. And when people do that, I think that's quackery," Brady added as per People.

In response to Brady's statements, Coca-Cola Co. defended its brands saying that they are a responsible beverage marketer.

"All of our beverages are safe and can be enjoyed as part of a balanced lifestyle," read the company's statement sent to ABC News.

It added that they are currently offering 200 low- and no- calorie beverages in the United States and Canada.

"As a responsible beverage company and marketer, we prominently provide calorie and sugar information for our beverages so people can choose what makes sense for them and their families," Coca-Cola added.

On the other hand, Kellogg Company spokesperson Kris Charles said in a Daily Mail report that the Frosted Flakes cereals in fact have great nutrients needed by young people.

"Cereal is a delicious and nutritious breakfast. Numerous studies show that a cereal breakfast is associated with lower BMIs in both children and adults. As a matter of fact, a serving of Frosted Flakes with skim milk has just 150 calories and delivers valuable nutrients including calcium, B vitamins and iron," explained Charles.

Brady has released his firm statements on junk food along with the revelation that his healthy lifestyle is a big part of his success in the NFL.
