Birth dates

Siblings born in quick succession may have a lower risk for type 1 diabetes, a study found. Researchers analyzed data on nearly 2,800 children with type 1 from 14 previous studies. They found that those born within three years of an older sibling had a 20 percent lower risk for developing type 1 than those born after a gap of more than three years. It’s unclear why this association may exist, though the researchers suspect that siblings who are closer in age catch each other’s infections more often. Some experts think that too little exposure to germs can cause the immune system to malfunction, leading to autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes.

The juice is loose

Fruit juice is chockfull of vitamins, but researchers report that many young children may be getting too much of a good thing. Experts recommend that parents limit fruit juice to just one serving (one half to three quarters of a cup) per day for children between the ages of 1 and 6. A poll found that 35 percent of parents say that their children drink 2 or more cups of juice a day; in low-income families, the figure was 50 percent. This translates to extra sugar and calories too easily swallowed, putting kids at greater risk of tooth decay and childhood obesity.

Game over?

In laboratory-based studies, active video games get children moving, but little is known about what happens when kids play the games at home. To test this, researchers gave 78 children between 9 and 11 years old Nintendo Wii systems and accelerometers to track their physical activity. Children given active video games for their Wii were, in fact, no more active during the five-week study than those who’d received standrad sit-and-click video games. These findinds suggest that it’s still important to encourage kids to get outdoors and that, outside a lab, video games may not get young hearts pumping.
