Read article - Quotes Jennifer Emond, assistant professor of biomedical data science and of pediatrics, in an article about a new study that found that television advertising in the U.S. for candy, fast food, sugary drinks, and other unhealthy treats continues to target mostly black and Hispanic youth. "Unfortunately, the foods and drinks most heavily targeted to children of color are high in sugar, salt and/or fat like sugary drinks, candy, and fast food," says Emond, who was not involved in the study. "And these foods should not be consumed on a regular basis." (Picked up by The Gazette, Ary News, WTVB, and CompuServe News.)
