We ban accounting that misleads, and we don’t let engineers build bridges that endanger travelers. We monitor effluent for chemicals that can kill us as well. There’s no reason in the world that market-share-fueled marketing ought to be celebrated merely because we enjoy the short-term effects it creates in the moment.
I am not a fan of more oversight in my life…and I definitely do not trust the government with my health. However, if you take a step back and look at not just how food is marketed to adults, but how it is marketed to children, I really feel like something major must happen.
