    ABSTRACT: Although tobacco and alcohol involve a high rate of morbidity and mortality, both remain widely advertised in the media. After a review of research into the influence of television and advertisements and an overview of the policies of the tobacco and alcohol industries, the author proposes ten specific steps to minimize detrimental effects on adolescents, including a total ban on tobacco advertising in all media and on beer and wine advertising in the broadcast media.

    ABSTRACT: The media can be a powerful teacher of children and adolescents and have a profound impact on their health. The media are not the leading cause of any major health problem in the United States, but they do contribute to a variety of pediatric and adolescent health problems. Given that children and teens spend >7 hours a day with media, one would think that adult society would recognize its impact on young people's attitudes and behaviors. Too little has been done to protect children and adolescents from harmful media effects and to maximize the powerfully prosocial aspects of modern media.
