ABSTRACT
The article presents information about junk-food advertising regulations in Great Britain. In 2002, Government's chief medical officer published a report arguing that child obesity, which reportedly reduced life expectancy. While 2003 witnessed the Food Standards Agency admitting that it has proof of a link between advertising and bad diets, in 2004, the culture secretary, Tessa Jowell ruled out new legislation on junk-food advertising and calls instead for voluntary action from the marketing industry to help tackle the child obesity crisis.
