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

Sirs: I can not believe that the proposed voluntary guidelines limiting fats , sodium and sugar in foods advertised to children under 18 are onerous and overly restrictive to the advertising industry. I believe that the epidemic in obesity and diabetes that is occurring in our children is very serious, very costly and much more important than the advertising industry making money on our health.The food industry must be brought under control. The absence of effective regulations has led to the current overweight and obesity epidemic and the associated health problems. Thank you, David R. Magnus
