Study Discovers Wealthier Parents More Likely to Download Apps for Kids

A new study by the San Francisco-based non-profit group Common Sense Media found that affluent parents download apps specifically for their young children more than parents of lesser financial means do.

Deemed the “app gap,” researchers found almost half of families with incomes above $75,000 had downloaded such apps, compared with only one in eight families earning less than $30,000. Lower-income families were also more likely to have televisions in their kids’ bedrooms.

Study Shows TV Can Hinder the Development of Children Under 2

Pediatricians and development experts have strongly urged parents, once again, to limit the amount of television their young children watch.

The American Academy of Pediatrics released a recommendation to all parents of children under 2 years old Tuesday. It stressed that any time spent in front of a video screen provides no educational benefits for children under age 2 and can even delay development by leaving less time for important interaction and play.

Supplements Could Be Linked to Increased Risk of Death in Women

Vitamins are said to be good for you. According to a new study from the University of Minnesota, however, that may not always be the case.

Researchers reviewed the cases of 38,000 women over a 19-year period and found that those who took supplements had about a 2.4 percent increased risk of death over those who didn’t, which could be related to the compounds supplements contain — compounds that can be toxic in higher amounts and have a detrimental effect on those who use them long-term.

‘Stay Sober’ Pill In Development

A pill that eliminated all the effects alcohol on lab rats may one day be available to humans.

Researchers fed the rodents — who react to alcohol similarly to how people do — the new drug after having them consume enough booze to stumble and fall down. Then they measured the rodents for balance and reflexes, finding that the rats on the drug tested as if they were still sober.
