    BEIJING (Reuters) - China is ringing in the New Year by banning television advertising for sanitary towels, hemorrhoid ointments and other items deemed unappetizing during meal times, the China Daily said on Wednesday.

    "A new regulation ... will prevent the broadcasting of advertisements for products such as sanitary napkins and medicine for hemorrhoids and athlete's foot during dinner time, as some viewers may consider them to be offensive," the newspaper said.

    The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, which unveiled the restrictions in September, has already set up a hotline for viewers to report violations.
