And from the American Heart Association--
When it comes to children and diet, the latest theories show too much salt and fat in infancy can contribute to high blood pressure problems later in life.
It's not just baby fat anymore.
Another new study finds four- and five-year-olds are getting fatter.
It's not that kids are eating more, or eating more fat.
Reporting in the journal Pediatrics, researchers say the problem seems to be that children aren't active enough.
The world's best selling prescription medicine will soon have some competition.
A federal appeals court has ruled that a generic version of the anti-ulcer drug Zantac will not violate the maker's patent.
Ranitidine Hydrochloride will cost up to 50 percent less than Zantac-- and should be available in July.))
