The FDA is reviewing a new vaccine to immunize young children against the most common germ that causes ear infections, a germ called pneumoccus. The new vaccine is given in four doses starting at two months and it's supposed to prevent 85% of infections caused by pneumoccus. Good news since the germ can also cause pneumonia and meningitis as well as ear infections. Expect approval by the end of the year.

Also today, do your children hate vegetables..especially those all time favorites, brussel sprouts and cauliflower? Well don't despair..time may be on your side. A report in the Journal health Psychology reports children become less sensitive to the bitter taste of certain vegetables as they grow older. In essence, the taste buds mature and don't react as strongly to the chemicals in some vegetables that cause a bitter taste. How long does it take for the taste buds to mature? I'm not sure...I still don't like brussel sprouts.

And finally today, early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and cranky. In fact, throw out the healthy and wealthy and stick with the cranky. A new study in the New Scientist says people who get up early and go to work early secrete higher levels of stress hormones and these stress hormones make an early riser more prone to getting sick and being more than a little irritable. The witching hour for going to work too early: 7:20. And it didn't matter how much sleep these people got the night before. ON CAM That's a look at today's top medical stories.
