FW: Please Forward: Help Parents Contend With Aggressive Commercial Influences
- Dear Friends:
Our children are in danger, and need your help now. Please take
action today to support the Parent's Bill of Rights to stop predatory
corporations from jeopardizing childrens' health, safety and
education. Tell your members of Congress to stop corporations from
advertising to children by signing the petition at:
There are dire consequences to the commercial assault on our
children. Children suffer from an epidemic of marketing-related
diseases. Rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes are soaring. Eating
disorders are the third leading chronic illness among teenage girls.
Alcohol is a factor in the four main causes of death among young
people aged 10 to 24. Millions will die from the smoking habit
promoted to them as youth.

keep commercial influences away from our kids if they so choose.
Is it ok to sacrifice our kids' health and values for a few more
dollars in corporate profits? Do you think the public schools should
be commercial free-fire zones? If your answer is no, then please, go
and sign the petition at:
