  • It's their money. They can use whomever they want in their advertisements. It's your mind. You can weed out the bad from the good.
  • nope, sex sells. inapropriate is making us look at richard simmons :)
  • If your goal is to sell those products, using skinny, fit models is very appropriate. If your goal is to care for health in society in general, it is inappropriate. So those fattening product manufacturers would prefer to make this kind of advertisements and the health care governmental agencies would try to find a way to stop those advertisements or to tell the truth about them.

  • Nope. Nobody's making you go buy those things. Also, our society prides itself in being educated. Why not prove that we are with our actions by not falling into the temptation of buying those things for the sole purpose of instant gratification?
  • Are we talking skinny, or fit models? Because I know a lot of very fit people who ingest those things. It is called moderation and exercising to make up for it. The ads aren't saying you will be skinny, or stay skinny, if you eat those products. Attractive models sell. It's a fact. So companies use it. It isn't really their problem that people don't understand moderation so half the people who ingest those things end up fat.
  • No. Normally I am not affected by advertising but if I see a fat lady I will boycott that item. I can't be a part of the fat chicks are acceptable movement. They are unacceptable and I am voting with my money.
