Pratt, Charlotte A.; Pratt, Cornelius B.
Journal of Black Studies, v26 n4 p504-23 Mar 1996
Examines the "Ladies' Home Journal" and two popular consumer magazines that target blacks to determine the proportions of food and beverage advertisements, nutrition advertisements and their promotional messages, and the health implications they reveal. Findings reveal these magazines had a significantly higher number of alcohol ads, limited attention to weight control issues, and less ads advocating good nutrition than magazines that target whites.
