4 Your Health: Controlling a toddlers weight; surviving a first heart attack.

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- New research has revealed race may play a role in whether people survive a first-time heart attack.

A new study shows African Americans have a similar risk of heart disease as whites but their first heart attack is twice as likely to be fatal. Researchers believe this may be due to a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors.

Also, African Americans may be less likely to seek medical attention for possible heart attack symptoms.

Toddler's eating habits

Allowing infants to control how much they eat does not appear to affect their weight as toddlers.

Researchers in New Zealand asked 100 mothers to delay the introduction of solid foods until their babies were able to feed themselves. This approach did not reduce the risk of obesity by age two, compared to traditional spoon-feeding practices.

Infants who fed themselves were also less likely be picky eaters.
