Australian doctors call for ban on advertising junk food to children

After an audit found that 99% of junk food advertisements promoted food with little or no nutritional value, Australian doctors called for a ban on junk food advertisements during children's television shows. The audit furthermore found that Australia had the most ads per hour of the 13 nations studied. Comment: how about a ban on junk food advertising to adults as well?
