at least in the states they don’t need to.
everyone knows fast food is terrible for you, yet people still eat it day in and day out.
a diet dominated by saturated fat is terrible for you, yet people still do it.
as hard as the medical establishment rails on eggs, steak, and bacon, people still consume it in large amounts, even poorly prepared.[/quote]
I might have misread your post but are you against eggs, steak and bacon? Also depending on what your definition of dominated is I might take issue with saturated fats being terrible for you. So long as the fats are split in a 1:1:1 ratio between saturated, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated its all good.
Back on topic:
Medical professionals will argue all day about what is and isn’t good for you.
Companies will still try advertise that their products are best for people regardless of what the medical establishment says. So where are the high-protein companies with this?
Would the FCC block ads saying that high protein foods are good for you? I mean the got milk campaign was huge and milk is pretty high in protein.
Also what about the more obviously healthy foods like green vegetables and fish? No doctor will say that green vegetables and fish are bad for you. Why aren’t the companies getting together to do some ads?
Some good ads with recipes shown on it might help sales. I know we see ads from companies like Bird’s Eye for fish but usually those Bird’s Eye foods are fairly processed. I’m talking about farmers and producers getting together with some of the supermarkets to advertise fresh meats and vegetables as the healthiest choice for people.
