No. Absolutely not. You've seen those Weight Watchers commercials where entertainer Jennifer Hudson lauds Weight Watchers because their diet-plans ALLOW some junk-food. (Note-to-Everybody: Find a Way to Send Chocolate to Jennifer Hudson! ) However, 'everything in moderation' should be preached/taught/ordered (by people in charge of public-speech) almost as often as 'G*d is Good' or 'Love thy Neighbor' or 'Pay Your Taxes' or 'Don't Litter!'

Banning junk food won't help, it's a person's own fault they're overweight because they ate too much and didn't get enough exercise. Healthy living is great but you can't make people be healthy, they have to decide that on their own.

Even if Junk food is highly unhealthy and can transform fit, healthy human beings into obese, lazy people. Is this what we want Earth to become for the future generations? However banning "junk food" would be nearly impossible. To ban junk food would be a complete failure. It would also leave people feeling that their freedom of choice was taken. A better way to handle junk food is to make laws more strict about ingredient labels. Perhaps require foods with little nutritional value to have their nutrition facts be bolder and in a bright colour. Also every moving Junk Food franchise accumulates approximately $1 million a day. There are over 500 such franchises all over Australia and USA. Multinational companies like Lay's, Doritos, etc. also make in the millions and billions. So imagine the amount of money international money, that would be drawn in every month. This kind of a cash flow is a necessity for big country economies to run. Hence, we should no let fast food joints or Junk food producing companies should not be shut down.

I don't think so. To be honest, junk foods are delicious. And if you don't eat a lot all the time, it won't be harmful for your health anyway. Why not give people more various snacks to select?
