Two US government reports explore possible links between the increased exposure of children to television advertising and the increase in childhood obesity in the US and other overdeveloped countries since the early 1980s. The first summarizes presentations to a July 2005 workshop convened jointly by the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Health and Human Services to share perspectives on marketing, self-regulation, and childhood obesity. The second one, by the staff of the Bureau of Economics at the Federal Trade Commission, uses data from the venerable Nielsen audience survey to analyze the exposure of children aged 2-11 to television advertising during 2004 and compare it to their exposure in 1977. That report is undated. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
