Neuromarketing in the age of despair
The US is in a health crisis. Rates of obesity are higher than ever, opioid overdoses increase every day, and while other countries death rates decline, 45-55 year olds in the US are increasingly dying in "deaths of despair." This includes alcoholism, depression, suicide, etc. In light of this, is it ethical for companies to use "neuromarketing" (see article link below) to increase sales of food products? What if they are healthy products? Who should monitor this? Who should set standards?
