Fat ads send wrong message
An eastern states nutritionist has attacked WA's 'Grabbable Gut' ads saying that they send a misleading message of fear and could lead to more eating disorders. Paul Murray spoke to the Lydia Jade Turner about her objections to the ads.
The CEO of the Heart Foundation in WA, Maurice Swanson, responded angrily to the claims of Lydia Jade Turner's comments claiming she was ill informed and unqualified to make comment on the program.
So all the heart foundation rep can say is how wrong and disqualified Lydia Turner is? Where is the professional spokesperson who can speak to the legitimate concerns with knowledge of the process and data? If the heart foundation feels this campaign is truly designed to help people then that is how they should approach addressing the concerns, not by personal attacks and saying ridiculous things like, well we will try to not have young people see this ad.
Wow. As a media professional I would suggest the heart foundation put someone else out front.Deb Lemire Wednesday 25 July, 2012 - 11:17 PM
I'm now watching a programe on the ABC on obesity in countries other than Australia.
There are certain companies (those which cannot be named) which have flaunted and marketed their products while reaping reward from the poor.
And now, through all this sadness, I see Margaret Ollie, in all her glorious colour, her interiors, and I think, well, there you go...ain't life strange?Dellas Tuesday 24 July, 2012 - 9:41 PM
Its a real shame that the only governments that we get are reactive and not proactive.Instead of paying billions upon billions of dollars thorugh our life cycle on health issues and advertising about the problems that we face with the obesity problems how about spending a small amount of money now to help the issue.The one biggest way that this can be done is to keep schools open for another hour and have students primary doing half hour exercise every day and high school students 45 mins every day.Maybe by ingraining some good habits while young that they might just carry through while they are older cutting all sorts of health issues that we all pay out for the rest of our lives.Diabetes /High blood pressure /Joint problems the list goes on .The reason why governments don,t do it is because one it costs too much NOW to do as they only think of thier own political life terms that they serve and not of the future benefits to our country.Its crazy.Pete Tuesday 24 July, 2012 - 5:04 PM
