Russia to ban fast food advertising

Russian MPs suggest restricting advertising of sugar, salt and fat rich junk food in mass media and public places.

A member of the sports committee of the State Duma, Vasily Shestakov, (United Russia) proposed a draft of amendments to the law on advertising, Pravda.Ru reports with reference to the Kommersant newspaper.

According to the newspaper, the new restrictions will contribute to the development of a culture of rational nutrition among young people to maintain normal weight and blood pressure. "The amendments actually equate fast food advertising to alcohol advertising," Shestakov told the newspaper.

In the future, Russia may thus restrict advertisements of soda, pastries, potato chips, margarine, and certain types of sausages. Under the bill, advertising of these products will be restricted in print media, radio and television programs.
