Busting the Myth of Food Industry Self-Regulation
Anna Lappé and her FoodMyth Busters have released a new video of Anna Lappé’s presentation at TEDx. Anna takes on the multi-billion-dollar business of marketing junk food, soda, and fast food to children and teens.
With diet-related related illnesses alarmingly on the rise, pervasive marketing of junk food to kids is downright dangerous. The food industry says its up to parents to raise healthy kids.
Yet food industry marketers are engaged in all manner of efforts to target our children with junk-food advertising, and spending $2 billion dollars per year in that effort.
Anna’s closing message to the food industry: “My kids are none of your business.”
