The Institute of Medicine released a
that stated that targeting children with advertisements for high calorie foods and beverages likely contributes to rates of childhood obesity.
Of course they do.
The fact is that children under the age of 11 cannot differentiate truth from advertisement.
Just as it is now a crime to target children with advertisements for smoking, so too should it be for crappy foods.
Call your local member of parliament, congressman or senator and tell them it should be criminal...in some countries it already is!
