More book info: The average advertising budget for a national candy bar is $50 million. The average budget for a soft drink is $100 million. Yet the government only spends $2 million a year promoting fruits and vegetables. That sounds a little messed up to me. And then we wonder why there's an obesity problem.


  1. A LITTLE messed up? a whole LOT messed up. Why don't they just quit promoting food of any kind and use the money to pay off some debt?

  2. It really is crazy how much is advertised that we really shouldn't be eating. I was noticing this week as I looked through grocery ads that 95% of the items on sale were not ones that I buy because they are not good for me. (Candy, chips, soda, frozen dinners, etc.)
