"It is high time it came to an end."

There is no question that we’re bombarded by images every day that tell us we could be eating better, working harder and looking good. These images have become so common that when we see them, we don’t often thing twice, but we totally are subconsciously.

There have been a lot of debates over whether these ads do harm and one mayor has taken a stand and said he’s no longer allowing ones that promote unhealthy body image to be publically displayed.

The Mayor of London has issued a ban on all ads in the transit system that promotes “unrealistic” bodies.

It’s an interesting idea, but is it necessary?
