Should junk food ads be banned?5th April 2011
Northern Ireland's Chief Medical Officer Dr Michael McBride has said there should not be any junk food advertisements aired on television before 9pm.
Around a quarter of men and a third of women in the UK have a BMI which is in the 'obese' zone. Dr McBride said restrictions should be placed on the television advertisment of foods "that were high in fat, high in sugar, and obviously those retail outlets that regularly advertise such foods on television".
