Ladies and gentlemen, today is the moment we've all been waiting for. Today is the day where we together will put an end to the excessive use of commercials for unhealthy food, which is heavily connected with the enormously increasing amount of obesity rates among American kids.
Many companies are aware of the growing concern and are willing to take care of the problem. Brian Kennedy, a spokesperson for the Grocery Manufacturers/Food Products Association, says the following:
"The food industry takes the issue of child obesity seriously; we have a role in addressing it, and we know that responsible advertising is part of that commitment."
That means that the very same companies behind the commercials for unhealthy food admit their influence on the increasing obesity rates.
