There should be tighter restrictions on junk food advertising, said minister of health Hassan Hashemi. While an outright ban on unhealthy food products is not possible since it is approved by the FDA, more awareness should be raised especially for children about the harmful effects of such food. Saying that efforts to caonvince governments and parliament to impose the ban has so far been futile, Hashmi saw the best option to curb fast food in the levy of heavier taxes on the junk foods, ISNA reports.
