TV ad ban on junk food : “‘We would prefer a ban to be imposed nationally, and we would prefer the industries involved to take their own action, but the State Government has sought legal advice on a state ban and the advice we have is that we can push ahead with legislation to introduce a SA ban as a last resort,’he said.”
We constantly prove how stupid and ill informed we are by not being able to provide proper food for ourselves as a society and by being incapable of feeding our children in a nutritionally sound way. We are neglectful and we advertise it daily. We seem not to care. Money has twisted common sense. There is no reason why proper food cannot be healthy. There is no reason why decent food can’t be the thing we eat. Creating food which is damaging and then selling it ought to be a crime. But it simply should not happen. We are so dopey. We do this to ourselves, we let it happen, we stand by and watch people get sick and eat rubbish and we do nothing. We just carry on. We are bonkers. I’d love to see advertising of bad food banned. I’d love to see us put the chemicals away and stop pretending they are not a problem. I’d love to see us look after ourselves and our children and I look forward to the day where we supply ourselves with decent, wholesome, nutritious food. It is not that hard!
