After all even God has supposedly trusted people with their own free will. Just banning everything left and right is not always the most successful solution.

I completely agree with this!Gravy wrote: ↑03 Mar 2016, 15:17I think banning them would make them more alluring, and could lead to even more problems, but I think it would be a large improvement if stores stopped inundating shoppers with unhealthy foods at checkouts.
That was never even brought up in the book.
Fast food joints, and convenience stores are problematic, but even pharmacies are sugar pushers when it comes to checkouts.
Rather than banning, it is important to self-regulate and have an awareness of why it is important to cut down on sugary food. Just cutting it out because there is a rule against it, definitely makes it more attractive and encourages an "I want it but I can't have it" mentality. By not banning things, and choosing healthier options, this becomes "I can have it but I don't want it".
Super markets are irresponsible too by placing offers on sugary food, such as "buy one get one free" or "2 for £3". This makes people buy more than they need because they are getting a good deal.
