Dear Editor,
We complain about advertisements on TV. There are so many advertisements, especially during favourite programs. We think they should
be stopped for a number of reasons.
First, advertisements are nuisance. They go on for a long time and there are so many. Sometimes there seems to be too many
advertisements in one program. Seconds, advertisements are bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy food like
soft drink, candy and chips. They make people want things they dont really need and cannot afford. It can lead to consumerism. Finally,
advertisements disturb programs that people watch. That is because they want to put all their advertisements on popular programs that many
people watch. Some programs that are not so popular get stopped because they do not attract enough advertisements, even though those
programs may be someones favourite.
For those reasons, we think your TV station should be stopped showing advertisements. They interrupt programs. They are a bad influence
on people, and they sometimes put a stop to peoples favourite shows.
We are sick of advertisements, and now we mostly watch other channels.

of them is the method of contraception. However, this method is not one hundred percent effective and successful. As a
consequence, some people argue that the abortion is the only effective way out.
Nevertheless, abortion may cause many negative impacts on womens health. Women risk their health and

endometriosis and many other kinds of ovary illnesses.
