Advertising indirectly persuades us to take action, and influences consumer purchase decision.

If there were no advertising, the consumption of tobacco, alcohol, soft drinks and junk food wouldn't have been so widespread today, so advertising affects our autonomy and limits our freedom to some extent.

That's why critical thinkers must approach advertisements skeptically to decrease their influence on our choices.
