Beware your food
Health warnings printed on advertisements originated in the US, but they've adopted them here in France as well. All alcohol ads contain warnings like this one, "Alcohol abuse is dangerous to your health. Consume in moderation."
But French health warnings don't end with cigarettes and alcohol.
Down at the bottom, these say, "For your health, eat less fat, less sugar, and less salt.
This one urges, "Eat a varied diet. It's better for your health."
And this soda pop ad reminds, "For your health, avoid snacking between meals."
We may be in the land of cheese and butter-filled pastries, but it's also the land of nutritional awareness.
