In response to a recent article in AdAge magazine reporting that the Spanish government is planning to ban some diet and beauty TV Ads before 10 PM:
“This is a terrific first step in easing the constant visual reminders of the unrealistic, body weight often portrayed in the media and viewed by young, vulnerable individuals who feel pressured to be ‘thin at all health costs.’ Continued monitoring and viligence of these unhealthy media messages needs to continue to avoid a shift from television advertising to Internet advertising, especially on popular social media websites that are heavily used by this age group.”
Convenient and inexpensive health foods like the potato and canned veggies are making a comeback in the current economic climate. Public Health Officials here in the US are encouraging people to lo0k for cheaper alternatives to the mixed green-based diet people maintained before the recession.
