A new study is blaming celebrities for childhood obesity.

New York University’s medical center said the impact of celebrity endorsements is now fueling our nation’s obesity epidemic among children.

The study found that nearly 80 percent of foods and beverages in advertisements were sugary and lacked the proper nutrients.

It also found that these commercials attribute to overeating.

To make matters worse, researchers pointed out that nearly $2 billion is spent every year by food and beverage companies on youth-targeted ads.
