Laboratory studies have shown that kids will request and prefer brands they have seen recently advertised on TV. A new naturalistic study bridges the gap between lab studies and a real world setting, demonstrating that kids who were exposed to TV ads for high-sugar cereals aired during the programs they watched were more likely to subsequently eat the brands of cereals they had seen advertised.
Researchers publish the first data on the treatment of an age-related disease with drugs called senolytics. The results in patients with deadly idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis are encouraging and indicate the feasibility of larger clinical trials.
The ketogenic diet has proven successful in helping people lose weight and improve their overall health, including those with epilepsy.

More than 50 million people died in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1919. Its 100th anniversary this flu season serves as a reminder to close flu vaccine supply gaps that may be costing lives now and could cost many more when the next "big one" strikes, researchers say.

"We were happy to discover similar results to the two other prior pediatric trials and pleasantly surprised to see how similar the rates of rescue analgesia were to those studies," Dr. Theresa M. Frey of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center reported.
