The food industry is a mass of different corporations There are fast food chains restaurants grocery stores and many others They all have the same goal of selling their products to consumers Companies are going to advertise in the best appealing way to accomplish this goal This may come at the expense of advertising not so healthy items as being healthy sometimes this advertising can look so good to people that they over indulge Mark Bittman has wrote an article called Can Big Food Regulate Itself Fat Chance Bittman expresses that there should be regulations as to what the companies can advertise and who their targets should be While I do agree With Bittman that there is an obesity problem in America everyone has their own choice as to what they put in their body Everything we choose to do in excess can have a harmful effect on our bodies even drinking too much water can be deadly One of the main concerns that Bittman speaks about is the industries right to self regulate There has been a proposition to have a voluntary guideline that company products must meet and follow For fear of losing the right to free speech these companies have established their own set of self regulations which Bittman describes in a nice way as pathetic The problem with this scenario is that the companies do not see the need to change their products They change some minuscule ingredient and all of a sudden the product is better and healthier Bittman would like to see more involvement from the government in regulating the sales and advertisements from food industries that claim their food is healthy With the obesity problem in America these companies should not be profiting from making people more obese with high fat and high calorie products
