Statement of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood’s  Co-Founder Dr. Susan Linn in Support of Lawsuits Against Viacom and Kellogg

There is no moral, ethical, or social justification for marketing junk food to children. Childhood obesity is a major public health problem. Overweight children are at risk for a number of serious medical problems including Type 2 diabetes; yet children continue to be inundated with ads for foods high in fat, sugar, salt, and calories.
