London's public transportation is free of junk food ads
Nov 26, 2018
The mayor of London announced a ban on junk food commercials in the city's public transport network. The new measure will take place in February. According to some analysts, around 30 million people use public transportation every day. The organization Transport for London will consider lifting the ban if companies can prove that consuming these types of food is healthy. According to data provided by the Mayor's office, around 82% of London residents supported the new measure. Some fast-food companies stated that when they do advertising, the stakes are high and they believe that customers have the right to choose and make informed decisions.
