4 Your Health: Steroid treatment hard to swallow and parents come down on junk food ads

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A majority of parents want to see fewer junk food advertisements targeting their children.

Researchers, at the University Of Connecticut's Rudd Center For Food Policy And Obesity, surveyed over 36-hundred parents. 85 percent said food companies do not act responsibly when they advertise to children, which makes it harder to raise healthy kids.

More than 60 percent were supportive of policies to promote healthy eating for their children, in the media, schools and communities.

Steroids not best medicine 

New research suggests steroid medications may not be an effective treatment for sore throat.

a British study followed over 500 patients who either got an oral dose of steroid or a placebo for throat pain that did not require antibiotics.

24 hours later, the steroid group had no less pain than the placebo group but they were slightly more likely to feel better after 48 hours.
