There has been a great deal of controversy swirling around the recent ad campaign here in Georgia regarding the Childhood Obesity billboards and video! I see the posters and have posted some of the commercials currently airing on local television here. The larger point is addressing the problem, yes it is in your face, but is there any nice way to address this?
I think there should be a similar ad campaing as the one they did against tabaco. Obesity kills many people and it creates negative environment for everyone. It doesn’t matter if it impacts us directly or nor, this epidemic it’s going out of control and that’s why there has to be a campaign that tells the truth, even if it hurts. So far, being politicaly correct hasn’t achieve it’s goal, instead it has made it worst.
