I believe they don't have to do any encouraging, and if they did it would backfire almost immediately. How many times do they have to suggest to (real) doctors to encourage patients to eat more bacon before one of them outs it on the Internet?
You may have heard of this doctor before that encouraged people to eat as much bacon as they liked: Doctor Robert Atkins.
On the other hand I do believe the food industry is doing a ton of consumer-unfriendly lobbying and advertising.
You don't see adverts for broccoli and asparagus, do you?
