|Experiences with online marketing of alcohol, gambling and unhealthy food: a survey||1.78 MB|
This report summarises the findings from a survey of 220 people who were either currently trying to reduce or stop at least one of three harmful and unhealthy products (alcohol, gambling, and unhealthy foods) or were trying to remain that way.
The survey was conducted by FARE and VicHealth to develop a better understanding of the impact of online marketing by companies selling harmful and unhealthy products.
Survey participants indicated they are concerned about online marketing for harmful and unhealthy products, that online marketing can make it harder for them to reduce their use or consumption of these products, and that they want to see less marketing for such products and feel better measures are needed to reduce the current amount of online marketing for these products.
