Nader, Philip R.; And Others
Health Education Quarterly, v16 n2 p229-44 Sum 1989
Participants were 206 low-to-middle-income Mexican-American and non-Hispanic families (623 individuals) recruited through their children's elementary school. Half the families undertook yearlong programs to decrease high salt and fat food intake and increase exercise. Two years later, experimental groups gained more knowledge of dietary and exercise habits, had significant improvements in blood pressure, and maintained behavior changes beyond one year. (SK)
