We should ban fast food advertising
We think that fast food advertising should be banned for many reasons for example, many fast food companies have supporting chariities (ronald mcdonald house), fast food adds dontt actually force you to buy a product they only suggest it, also fast food buisness men make their money out of their fast food adds, putting a stop to thhem will mean that fast food companies would make a lot less money.

Fast food advertising encourages unhealthy eating making people fat!
Fast food doesn't necessarily make people fat, just unhealthy (cholesterol, starch etc) . See, I'm not fat but I don't feel healthy because I barely have any muscle and I live on fat, sugar and starch mostly. I need to change my diet and exercise.
Fast food chains are also offering balanced diets, high protein, salad bowls etc are all on the menu even at pizza hut and McDonald's.
The advertisements are not telling the whole truth
In many instances, the fast food does not deteriorate over time - read: does not break down as food should. This could be dangerous in the long term.
People have the choice. Advertising does not make people fat, being lazy and not burning this lovely food off does.
It does long term damage to individuals leading to countless diseases eventually and its promotion should be banned as is cigarrete ads.
Do folk not have a choice ?. No one makes them eat or smoke. People have always had the choice, and some decide to eat what they like and when, and then walk away instead of getting a taxi or daddy to collect. It is the fat people who have given these eating establishments a bad name.
Its a business, a business doing its job
So what if they advertise? Its your self control that says "no i shouldn't have that today". If you don't like it, then don't like it. But lets face, they have hundreds of customers per day. Just because you dont agree with fast food doesn't mean no one does. Should we ban advertisements for cookies? Soda? Energy drinks? other 'junk food'? Besides, eating a big mac, some fries and a drink from mcdonalds is better than eating most dishes you can get at an italian restaurant. In face, pizza is really bad for you too. Should we ban pizza advertisements? Do some research to whats bad for you. Most things contain something that people complain about. From Vitamin Water to Perscription Medications. And yes, Meds that have advertisments could be bad for you too! In turn, with the logic of the "yes" argument, nothing should be advertised.
