Should fast food advertising be banned?
Advertising should generally lead people to buy certain products. Researchers have now found that if one adolescent per week sees additional advertising for fast food, it leads to a dramatic side effect: Affected adolescents consume about 18,000 extra calories per year.
Researchers at Cancer Research UK have found in their recent research that if adolescents see additional advertising for fast food on television each week, they are eating about 18,000 more calories a year. The physicians will present the results of their study at this year’s European Congress on Obesity in Vienna.

In order to achieve this, parents may even have to consider in the future what their children watch on TV for advertising.
