What’s more, many commercials today are flashy sales pitches that over-glamorize their products/services. Some prey on people’s insecurities to get you to buy their products. The beauty industry, for example, is chocked full of advertisements convincing you that you must look a certain way to be considered beautiful, while junk food, through the power of marketing, has turned into a tool for self-reward and self-love, in turn contributing to declining health.
