Junk Food Should Be Banned For People Under The Age Of 18
First, junk food advertising seems too good for children to resist. Therefore children start buying this junk food anytime they like. As they grow up like this they will set a bad example for their children and grandchildren. This could lead to obesity and even some cancer.

Firstly junk food is bad for kids. You can get a type of cancer from it like how RedDragon5 said. It can also addict children to have it all the time. Children will not eat other foods in the food pyrimaid. Finally Junk food can be a waste of money. It's a fast food and can do no help for me, so there is no point eating it.

GrandCru believes that junk food is acceptable but I feel that junk food contains too much oil. Oil contains fat which can stop you from doing sport. It makes you lack from doing exercise.

I strongly agree that junk food should be banded for under 18.

Well, yes, and it is true enough that junk food is addictive so.... It adds up calorie and chemically.

Salt and fat have the same addicitve tendencies
as does caffeine and sugar. Hyperactives get
high off sugar.

Apples and bananas should be available for healthy snacks, and almonds or peanuts for a quick protein snack.

Healthy alternatives, plus a daily walk for
at least some attempt at exercise helps.

Junk food is so good for people. You guys are talking nonsense. Junk food tastes good. Junk food is fast. Junk food is healthy. Mcdonalds have salads inside there burgers. So its healthy burgers like grild. Junk foods are so healthy for people. You cant get cancer from it. It tastes so nice. Junk food is the best. I recommend eating it every day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Eat Junk for everything its the best!

 Fat little kids running around with high blood pressure is not a bit of pleasure.

Obesity is a real health hazzard which should
appropriately be addressed.

Obeisity is not only related to what u eat it is also related to the lack of exercise, the parents not teaching their children about moderation, and it is also with what happens to you before you are born.

 Obesity is related to both in my opinion. If you eat unhealthy and excersie the same time your body stays the same because all the fat has been excersied out........

1) There's no simple definition of junk food. Some would lump hamburgers and fries, fried chicken, and pizza into junk food. 2) Something which is junk food by itself may be fine as a side dish. Potato chips alone are junk but if they're a small bag paired up with a decent sandwich they're acceptable. And on the flip side, whole grain crackers may be healthier than chips but if lunch is nothing but a bag of them then they've become junk in that instance. 3) Diet restrictions are a factor. To a vegan anythingy animal based is junk. To an Atkins diet person anything carb is junk. And culturally some may consider anything outside the cuisine of their own culture to be junk. 4) Your proposed ban is too blanket - it's everyone under 18 - and it isn't limited to schools. So now you've banned grandmas from giving a cookie to their grandkid. Are you going to lock grandma up for that? And if parents have potato chips in the house but they're not behind a padlock would police finding them be treated the same as finding teens have access to alcohol in their parents' house?
