Childhood Antecedents to Adult Coronary Artery Diseases. Special Reference Briefs.
This reference brief deals with the childhood antecedents to atherosclerosis and hypertension. While diet is related to the development of coronary artery diseases, there is some disagreement about what dietary changes are necessary or desirable in children to prevent their development, and at what age such changes should be made. Fifty-five abstracts are presented of studies on the topic. Children in the studies ranged in age from infancy through adolescence. (JD)
