Should Food Advertisements for Children be Banned?



  • But it’s OK to fill children’s minds with junk-food-for-thought via school and ‘entertainment’ medias etc..

  • Sean,

    Notice how at the end the other guy claimed that the children were not just obese but overweight in many cases. The problem here relates to the BMI index which is entirely absurd. If I was as trim as possible I would still be in the overweight category because I have a stocky build. Smash the BMI and he has no leg to stand on.

    • I did notice, and I wanted to pick him up on that, but we had a five minute slot, and I wanted to get the main points across. It’s one reason I mostly turn down invites to go on the MSM nowadays.

      • You did well. I just think many people believe STATISTICS so a general denunciation plus a critique of BMI would reduce the intensity of that belief

  • Reblogged this on rudolfwordpressblog.

  • What I noticed, was how often Sean said “I” and his opponent said “we.”

    • I didn’t notice, but am now struck by your observation.

      • Sean it is generally good for a speaker to use “we” – as was dinned into the Blessed Maggie.

        But she also indicated the problem of such training when she declared

        “We are a grandmother”

        and was accused of ” idées au-dessus de sa gare”

        • It also makes you sound like a dishonest robot.

  • I can’t get the video to play so may be missing some of Sean’s wisdom but as a general rule I disagree with regarding children as a food source.

    Though the good Dr Swift has powerful arguments in its favour.
