Why commercials are loud

I would like to add one observation to Herbert Schlaf’s letter (4/5) suggesting obesity is tied to the number of commercials on TV. My wife and I have wondered: Why such increased volume at commercial time? We conclude that advertisers don’t want folks to miss a single word of their burger and fries or chips ad while on the way to the fridge during the commercial break.

Obesity is a result of American marketing, it is a result of the sheeple being brainwashed, I pity the obese they are victims of a sick society, I really pity them, they are victims of lazy parents.
