Abstract

Sixty-three students aged 7 to 12 years (32 boys, 31 girls) were assessed for coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors, including family history of CHD, blood pressure, VO2 max, serum lipids, body composition, and history of diabetes mellitus and cigarette smoking. Forty-two percent of the children had one risk factor, and 12% and 3% had two and three risk factors, respectively. This information was used to encourage school administrators and faculty to modify the physical education program, teach health and fitness concepts in the classroom, and develop a rehabilitation program for children at risk.
