Take Two Candies, Call in Morning -- Brazilian pharmacies will soon start selling medicines for children "camoflaged" as candy -- "The idea of dispensing medicine in candy form has been a controversial subject for more than 50 years, with the primary concern centering on the fear of overdose. "The dangers may outweigh the benefits," said Dr. Humayun J. Chaudhry, chairman of the Department of Medicine at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. "Adults are able to tell the difference between candies and medication, but it would certainly not be realistic to expect the same thing from children.""
