New research sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was published in the journal Pediatrics.  The researchers looked at blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar of close to 3900 US teenagers.  The conclusions suggest that half of our teenagers are at risk of the future heart attacks and other cardiovascular effects.  How do you help your pediatric patients and their parents to reverse serious health risk factors?
