The Lancet wants to see action to tackle obesity, they say there should be controls on advertisements for junk food as there are for tobacco and alcohol advertising. There needs to be better labeling so consumers can see which foods are healthy, also education on healthy eating. Unhealthy Fast food should be taxed.
