Advertising spend sums it all up

Us vs. ThemThe food industry* spends more than $33 Billion — with a B — each year on advertising and promotion.  In contrast, the National Cancer Institute spends $1 million a year to promote fruits & veggies.

Surely, the NCI isn’t the only one on our side, but still… this imbalance paints a clear picture of what we’re up against.

* It should really be called the “Food Product Industry.”
