Block individual advertisers and advert types

I am sick and tired of seeing adverts for junk food (particularly mcdonalds). It is actually causing me stress, I don't want to eat that type of food and I don't want to be brainwashed to do so with subliminal advertising. I think it's absolutely disgraceful that this type of ad is particularly abundant on sites related to weight loss, catching people at their lowest, foiling their attempts to change. This seems to be my only option for communication as there doesn't seem to be an option to block a particular advertiser. I don't mind seeing adverts for things that actually interest me and can contribute to my wellbeing. Otherwise I am a fan of google. Can someone advise on a way forward?

Hi Edward D,

 

This isn't really the right forum for your question.

Yes. I found no other means of venting this issue to google, so I'm not too
concerned about relevance. I just wanted to express my annoyance somewhere.
Can you advise on a more appropriate forum for this topic?

Hi @Edward D,

 

You should use this form to send your feedback to Google. By doing so, you can get your voice heard without filling up help forums that have nothing to do with what you are wanting to vent about. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
