Does Advertising Make Us Fat? Yes! is an article that was written by a man named Gary Ruskin. This article is very specific in focusing on the fact that Advertising really done by fast food companies also known as “big food” really has shown to have an effect on the ever growing number of obese children in America and also states that 80% of obese children will go on to be obese adults, which is the real aim of our blog (obese adults).
The article was published by a group called Commercial Alert. Commercial Alert is a non-profit organization established under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code. Their mission is to keep the commercial culture within its proper sphere, and to prevent it from exploiting children and subverting the higher values of family, community, environmental integrity and democracy.
This article was also extremely helpful in providing information with which I could build my argument. I will be using several bits of data from this article in my paper. It was rather hard to find because for some reason I had to go digging within the foundations website to find it.
