: -they want to sell happy meals, so they target children. That's just -logical marketing. There's nothing too life-threatening about that.

: Nothing too life threatening about that? Are you being serious? In the witness box, when his company spent 10million (just over $20million) suing two people who's weekly income is just 70, McDonalds (UK) president, Paul Preston, said that he could not see anything wrong with a child eating McDonalds food 6 times a week.

DON'T YOU THINK THAT IS UP TO THE PARENT TO DTOP THEM FROM EATING THERE 6 TIMES A WEEK??? HELLO MAYBE YOU SHOULD ATTACK THE PARENTS. iS IT ILLEGAL TO SELL SEX IN ADVERTISEMENT TO MAKE PEOPLE BUY PRODUCTS? THIS IS JUST AS WORSE THEN SELLING TO KIDS!! AT LEAST MCDONALD'S DOESN'T SELL SEX!! THINK ABOUT THAT. THEY ALSO SUPPORT CHILDREN CHARITES!! NOW YOU TELL ME DO ALL OTHER COMPANYS HAVE THERE OWN CHARITY RRMC WHICH HELP OUT SICK CHILDREN

: This leads to severe problems for a persons health if they eat food high in cholesterol on a regular basis starting from a young age. It has been medical proven that if you give a young child and teenager lots of cholesterol over a sustained period they are many times more likely to suffer from severe cardiac illness at a younger age than would normally be expected. (ie. they will be having heart attacks by the time they are 30, instead of 50+)

AS I SAID ABOVE THIS IS THE PARENTS FALT. WHO GIVES THEM THE MONEY TO BUY MC?

--
McSpotlight: McDonald's are well aware of 'pester power'; the ability of children to persuade their parents; and target their advertising at children to exploit this.

Is it ethical to subvert parental authority in the name of profit?
