MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS: Kids and pediatricians + Teens binge drinking
There’s a new push for pediatricians to prescribe physical activity to children. A new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests only a fourth of children are exercising as much as recommended. Research shows an active lifestyle helps both physical and behavioral development. Doctors recommend an hour daily for most children.
Plus, Alcohol ads could prompt teens to start drinking… and binge drink. A new study from New York University suggests that just like the tobacco industry- popular culture has heavily influenced teen exposure to alcohol.
Now… some public health experts are calling for regulation of advertising.
