Health Alert: Children's medical research harder to study

(CBS) - Doctors say only a small percentage of new medical research is devoted to children. Scientists at Duke University looked at more than 60-thousand clinical trials and found only 5-thousand were designed for health problems facing kids. They say many pediatric diseases are rare making them harder to study.

Canadian researchers say games that involve physical activity can help children get more exercise. In a study, they found kids who play the games get an average of 50 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise each time.
