LONDON, Aug 17, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Magazines aimed at African-American and Hispanic women reportedly publish twice as many advertisements for products such as alcohol and tobacco.
Researchers also say black and Latino magazines publish four times fewer advertisements for healthy products.
A study published in the British open access journal BioMed Central Public Health, shows the content of ads in black or Latino magazines may contribute to the lower health status observed in African-American and Hispanic populations in the United States.
