Advertising is Not Responsible for Fat America

Summary: The fight between brands and those regulatory machines continue. The political sphere is ready to challenge and tighten its grip on the advertising industry, specifically those “junk” food brands and foods generally consumed by younger Americans, before looking at all the facts. It’s election season, and facts or not, the powers-that-be want to send a message to voters so they can continue to be in power. There has been a debate going on about whether or not advertising has played a part in manipulating the buying habits of children and adults, causing them to only buy unhealthy foods and therefore spreading this obesity epidemic through unknowing America.
