This chapter contributes to the ethical debate around the marketing practices associated with widely available, yet harmful products that are consumed by large numbers of Australians. While there are services, such as those supported by the gambling industry, which are also legal yet detrimental to health, this chapter focuses on consumables. The legal aspect is covered in the notion that the sale and advertising of these products are permissible by law, albeit frequently controlled to varying degrees by marketing regulation and consumer protection legislation.
