"Child Food-Porn" (Junk food advertising) makes our children obese & unhealthy

Junk food makes our children fat, obese and unhealthy which leads to disease and premature death. It does not kill instantly, only in the long run.

“Child Food-Porn” (Junk food advertising) makes our children obese & unhealthy. A 17 year-old cannot consent to sex  (hence consensual sex with a minor is rape). A 3 year old obese child REALLY does not have the capacity to consent to overeating on junk food. Without valid consent, a child is “seduced” to ingest substances that causes disease and premature death. Feeding harmful substances that cause long term damage to a trusting infant without consent is slow “child poisoning”. Knowingly destroying the health of an innocent trusting infant is a heinous felony, perpetrated by junk food advertisors, vendors, and parents. Why are feminists so unconcerned about our children’s health and long life, but obsess about possession nude photos and consensual teenage sex?

Food Porn” (attractive food devoid of nutritional value) has become prevalent in the last 50 years. It has led to the greatest health epidemic on earth: obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease. ….

Food-Porn: food which has been calculatingly created and marketed to satisfy our food lusts without nutritional benefits.

Constant exposure of our children to such “food porn” has led to obese children which exacerbates the current public health menace of obesity and sedentarism.

Food Porn at its best. Attractive looking worthless unhealthy junk food, expertly made up and photoshopped.

Making an entire generation of children obese and sick:
a heinous crime against humanity

Humans have an inborn genetic evolutionary propensity to like sweets and fat. This was useful in the stone-age savanna and forest in order to pick the sweetest ripest fruits and to enjoy the fat of occasional lean game meat.

Nowadays, in the age of the supermarket with unlimited butter, oil, lard, and sugar, this maladaptive evolutionary heritage has to be countered by education and formation of good habits.

Instead the opposite is happening: Children’s gullibility gets abused. Children are the target of ruthless advertising campaigns to make them even eat even more junk then the would eat naturally.

Instead of teaching children wise choices, instead of making children into future healthy citizens, they systematically get turned into fat unhealthy monsters. Greedy marketers and spineless mis-informed parents create a publich health desaster. I call this a crime against humanity. We knowingly destroy the lives of our children. We are poisoning our children with junk, condemning them to a life of disease!

There is something wrong about our system: we can fly to the moon, we can do open heart surgery, but we cannot feed our children right?

And we can not prepare them to eat right and lead a healthy life? This is a public emergency which needs all our resources to solve.

Of course, maybe we ourselves need to start eating right, too, before we teach our children.

5 year old children are totaly incapable of making informed decision about ingestion of junk food. The kid is not to blame. The kid is a victim of irresponsible adults.Adults are 100% to blame for the sorry state of this kid, condemned to a life of obesity.

The true responsibility lies with the parents. But industry and society brainwashed the parents into getting bad eating habits themselves. And government neglects its duties by letting all this happen and poison an entire generation of an entire nation.

Analogous to Food Porn, Human-Stupidity.com proposes a new term:

Child Food-Porn

“Child Food-Porn”

depictions meant to entice children to consume “Food Porn” (junk food)

Child Food Porn”:
Depiction of children or cartoon characters appealing to children in order to arouse children’s lust for unnatural unhealthy junk food (Food-Porn)

Child Food-Porn: depictions of cute lovable cartoon characters with the intent to sell junk food to children.
(see Cookie Crisp Carton to the right)

Financial Greed destroying the lives of children
Pure selfish greed earns money without concern for children’s health, by abusing

  • children’s gullbility,
  • children’s love for cartoon characters,
  • children’s trust in the cartoon characters, and
  • the human evolutionary “design flaw” to love sweets.

Adults are the only ones to blame for the intentional perversion of children’s mind, for creating habits that will condemn them to a life of obesity and ill health.

child-food-porn-cookie-crisp

Child Food-Porn must be combatted and eliminated

No more brainwashing children into obesity-causing eating habits

Consumption of “Food-Porn” (junk food) by healty adults and in moderation may be defensible.But advertising such perversion to indoctrinate children is irresponsible.

Seducing children to live a life of obesity. A heinous crime

But conning gullible children into adapting life threatening bad eating habits (“Child Food-Porn”), this is is plain criminal behavior. Greed that kills!

Society should unite in the goal to totally exterminate this abhorrent plague from the face of the earth! With the same fervor & methods child pornography is being fought. Child Food-Porn (pictures to seduce children to eat Food-Porn (junk food)) has absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever. It destroys children’s health and grooms them for future unhealthy eating habits as adults.

Food Porn arouses Lust for Food with No Nutritional Value

The term “Food Porn” has been around for about 10 years. This expression “Food Porn” deserves to become more popular.

I define pornography as something created and marketed to titillate human pleasure centers (almost always to enrich the purveyors) while offering no redeeming effects on the body, mind or soul of the consumer other than a temporary, short-term satisfaction of the more base human appetites.

food-pornFood porn, then, is food which has been calculatingly created and marketed to satisfy our food lusts while offering little to no benefit—and usually harm—to the body, mind and soul.

Our fast food is usually food porn, as is much of the food found in our chain restaurants. Our supermarkets, however, are also brimming with food porn. If you can imagine a supermarket layout in your mind, I would classify the great majority of items in the isle sections as food porn (the stuff on the periphery tends to be more good than bad—think whole foods).

Food porn, like common porn, takes the basic form of something good, but in reality it is something artificial, fake and full of illusion. I know you know what the common porn is trying to simulate, but what food porn is trying to simulate is simply real food.

Take bread. Bread is good, right? You know, the staff of life? I invite you to go and look at the list of ingredients of 90% of the varieties of bread in the center isles of your supermarket, which I insist are not bread at all, but food porn.

Great description. I could not write it better. Congratulations!

Just as Porn is fake unreal sex, food porn is unreal food.

“Food Porn”  has become prevalent in the last 50 years, and led to the greatest health epidemic on earth: obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease.

No real-world greasy fat-dripping Big Mac looks as sexy as this beauty on this food porn advertising photo! Unreal beauty to seduce like photoshopped porn stars.

If the casserole is missionary style, food porn takes its devotees into the foodie kama sutra.  It glistens. It drips. It uses props. It is both lusty and intimate. For those who partake, it is an obsession. skinnygourmet.blogspot.com/2008/02/what-is-food-porn.html

Food Porn just as damaging to society as Sexual Porn?

There exists another pornography just as insidious as the common kind, and just as damaging to society. The only difference is that we’ve societally accepted this other kind wholesale. Nearly all of us partake of it, and dare I say, are addicted to it.   www.utahpeoplespost.com/opinion/2986/the-other-pornography

I  beg to differ! 30% of the population overweight and suffering from disesases, premature death and early retirement due to disease., This is just as damaging as porn?

Food Porn (junk food with no nutritional values) kills Millions per year. Does Sex Porn kill Millions of people every year?

Repression of sexual Porn is a puritan religious crusade. I don’t want to get into detail if sexual Porn might even be positive (sex education, rape prevention, psychological outlet). Or if it is neutral. Or, maybe it is really detrimental for family life and for wasting  valuable time. But damage is very unclear. Sexual porn is very unlikely to take lives or to totally destroy the health of its “addicts’ like diabetes or heart attack would.

Food Porn (junk food) is proven to be the worst public health menace we have.  Together with lack of exercise, it causes obesity and diseases in a major percentage of our children and youth. Food Porn causes serious diseases and death in adults. And Food Porn reduces quality of life due to overweight and obesity.

Childhood Obesity Promotion: Cartoon characters attract kids to junk food

Junk Food entices our children to destroy their health
Junk Food entices our children to destroy their health

Human Stupidity at its finest: We crate our children to be unhealty fat and sedentary. We actively entice children to become unhealty!

In the study, which is published this week in the journal Pediatrics, Roberto and her colleagues presented 40 children ages 4 to 6 with paired samples of graham crackers, gummy fruit snacks, and baby carrots. Each pair of sample foods was identical down to the clear packaging, except that one of the packages had a sticker of Shrek, Dora the Explorer, or Scooby Doo on it.

Between 50 percent and 55 percent of the children said that the food with the sticker on it tasted better than the same food in the plain package. (The percentage varied with each food.) And between 73 percent and 85 percent selected the food in the character packaging as the one they’d prefer to eat as a snack.

Probably everyone knew this already. The interesting thing is that the cause of premature death of about 30% of our population is not reason for concern and for emergency action and emergency legislation.

“Parents may not set out to buy unhealthy products,” says the lead author of the study, Christina Roberto, M.S., a doctoral student at Yale University’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, in New Haven, Connecticut. “But kids can be really, really persuasive. They see them and they want them, and it gets difficult to have that battle in the grocery store.”

Why do we eat bowel-cancer-causing bacon sandwiches?

A different take on the age 0ld issue: why do people smoke, eat unhealty. Why don’t they listen to health advice about dangers that happen in the far future.

While the article does not give clear good answers, nevertheless it gives some funny and interesting suggestions.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/8019357.stm

Professor of risk understanding, University of Cambridge

[…]

The threat from bacon sandwiches gave the opportunity for The Sun to produce the classic headline “Careless pork costs lives”, while the Daily Telegraph was true to form and frothed on about the nanny-state denying us our bacon birthright.

But all these health warnings tend to have little influence on behaviour, just as scientific derision for homeopathy appears to have no effect on many people’s enthusiasm.
