While I was walking down the street of a busy city in China, I thought to myself: “There is an unbelievable amount of flashing advertisements here”. Just blatant, in-your-face ads for every product you can imagine. It seemed obnoxious at the moment, but I began to appreciate the fact that the advertisement was so blatant, as opposed to our country where the advertisements can be so subtle and deceitful.
Nowhere is this more prevalent for me than in the health and fitness industry. It is an industry where health problems are invented for the sake of a dollar, and where nutritional recommendations fly in the face of logic and fact.
