Pulling The Plug On Fat Ads

NEW YORK – Companies who make fatty foods are under fire for their role in America’s obesity. So how about the part their advertising plays in encouraging people to plow through a bag full of Doritos or a box of Oreos?
Some health advocates have already called for certain restrictions on food advertising in the United States. Indeed, the other industry closely scrutinized for its health effects, tobacco, has had strict advertising regulations for decades. In 1971, cigarette advertising was effectively banned from television and radio. And in 1998, as part of the tobacco settlement between states and major tobacco companies, the cigarette makers agreed to remove all ads from outdoor and transit billboards.
