An advocate for nutrition, health and food safety through its award-winning newsletter Nutrition Action. CSPI is a small influence compared to the $billions spent promoting the sale of unhealthy food.
Defending the marketers of cheaply produced, unhealthy junk food to kids does not make sense. Parents should know all about unhealthy food choices and the grief that can follow later in life, and they should educate their kids. But there is massive advertising with a wide ranging supply of tricks to conscript tots and teens to a life of poor health with such as diabetes and stroke.
If this is free enterprise then it is flawed. Allowing big business to reap profits from promoting product sales that knowingly cause personal harm should be severely restricted or made unlawful.
The public needs people like Nutrition Action on our side.
