There is evidence that exposure to unhealthy commodities (tobacco, alcohol and to a lesser extent foods high in fat, salt and sugar, HFSS) imagery in televised media causes young people to experiment with and become regular users of these unhealthy commodities, but the magnitude of the public health problem caused by this exposure, the drivers for inclusion and the most appropriate preventive policy responses remain uncertain. The post holder will support a programme of work on tobacco, alcohol and HFSS media content, building on our existing work in this area and extending to other forms of ‘new’ media including YouTube, TikTok and Instagram.
