Preliminary Proposed Nutrition Principles to Guide Industry Self-Regulatory Efforts, Project No. P094513

Hello, I am writing to tell you about my support for the FTC proposal. I am in support of strictly limiting or quite possibly banning the extensive and lengthy advertisements that American children are exposed to, especially during the prime days/hours of saturday mornings. The chances that you have a child in your family whos is overweight or obese is likely high so please think about your loved ones and how greatly they may benefit from enacting such a proposal. Our media has a great effect on our children and we are ethically responsible to what they are exposed to because they are such an impressionable and vulnerable group. I urge you to please consider putting an end to this continuous manipulation of our children and by implementing this proposal, you are contributing to the fight against obesity that is so rampant amongst our American children. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please do the right thing.
