The prevention of coronary athero sclerosis


Acta Paediatrica Belgica 29(4): 219-222
The prevention of coronary athero sclerosis
The most important risk factor for coronary atherosclerosis, at ages 30-60, is serum cholesterol, whereas blood pressure is the dominant risk factor in older age groups. The serum cholesterol levels and food habits in infants and children from Belgium, Japan and the USA were compared. It is possible to raise children in the Western world with serum cholesterol at levels as low as in a developing country through a diet low in saturated fat.
