Despite the alarm by illnesses caused by food change, little is being done from the institutions. Advertising for junk food, soft drinks, ice cream and sweets, food multinationals launch nin@s and population in general unfolds freely without legal or social obstacles. This explains the proliferation of fast food establishments and vending of drinks and sweets, even in schools.
