4 Your Health: Revelations about picky eaters; importance of statins for stroke victims

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Stroke patients who quit taking cholesterol-lowering statins may put their health and lives at risk.

A new study followed 45,000 people with a history of ischemic stroke, the type caused by blocked arteries. Patients who stopped taking statin drugs soon after their stroke were 42 percent more likely to have another stroke than those who continued statin treatment for a year.

Discontinuing statins also increased the risk of death from any cause by nearly 40 percent.

Don't give up on picky eaters

Toddlers are known for being picky eaters but kids with cautious personalities may be even more likely to snub new foods.

Researchers at the University Of Colorado looked at how babies reacted to new toys and new foods during their first 18 months. They found children who were wary of the toys were also more hesitant to try new foods. 

Experts said parents of cautious kids should continue to offer a variety of foods during meals.
