This paper examines and summarizes an article in the "International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity." The paper reveals that a correlation between food marketing, advertising practices and childhood obesity is highly likely, if not completely certain.

From the Paper:

"The International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity recently published the findings of Mary Story and Simone French in a piece entitled "Food Advertising and Marketing Directed at Children and Adolescents in the US." Story and French operating on the well-founded assumption that the food and beverage industry in the US views children and adolescents as a major market force conclude that this phenomenon is actively contributing to the enduring state of ill-health and obesity that young Americans are experiencing."
