The study first appeared in the January issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.

Current statistics estimate that around 30 percent of the children in the US are either overweight or obese. The problem that comes with extra weight is also very real for children as well. Out of these children roughly 6 in 10 have at lease one risk factor for increasing their chances for cardiovascular disease and 25 percent of these kids are risk will have at least two risk factors for heart disease.

Eating your breakfast may not be the most inspiring and delightful meal of the day and you may just not feel like eating as hurry up to get out the door in the morning. However, researchers have found yet again, that eating breakfast are one of the most important meals of the day and can help keep you slim and trim. Teenagers that skip breakfast have shown that they are more likely to eat more fast food meals when they enter into adulthood and eat breakfast less often. This usually ends up with the young adult becoming overweight. The study was first reported in the December 2006 issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health.

The researchers at The Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center at The Miriam Hospital and Brown Medical School analyzed data of over 20,000 adolescents from Add Health which studied adolescents from grades 7 through 12 in the United States. The researchers used data was collected in two waves. The first wave was a total of 9,919 students and the second wave was the same students ranging in age from 11 to 21 from April to August of 1996. The third wave was collected from these same students who now ranged in age from 18 to 27 years of age from August 2001 to April 2002. At each of the waves the participants were questioned about fast food consumption and whether they ate breakfast or not. They were also measured for their body mass index (BMI) rating which helps to determine if they are overweight.

by Arthur Agatston

Dr.Arthur Agatston visited on NBC’s Today Show about his new book titled, “The South Beach Heart Program: The 4-Step Plan that Can Save Your Life.” He explained that there are a number of things you can do to help prevent heart disease.

The number one cause of death in the United States is heart disease. There will be over one million people in the US that will have a heart attack this year. There will be 600,000 that will suffer from a stroke this year. Dr. Agatston believes that more can be done to prevent heart disease through lifestyle changes. These changes include both diet and exercise.

Preventive medicine is a becoming popular among a growing number of cardiologists. Agatston referred to this new thinking with doctors as a cardiac revolution. This idea of preventative cardiology in medicine could eventually limit the numbers of people that develop heart disease and have heart attacks in the future. Cardiology has been thought of as a plumber that cleans out clogged arteries after the damage has become so bad. Agatston and other cardiologists are now looking at treating heart disease in a preventive manner and have seen a great reduction in the seriousness of damage cardiovascular systems.

Adults living with children tend to eat considerably more saturated fat than those adults without children. Researchers from the University of Iowa and University of Michigan Health System study equate the extra saturated fat consumption as if the adult were to eat an entire frozen pepperoni pizza extra each and every week. The study will be published in the January 4th, 2007 online edition of the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.

This study turns the table and looks at how possibly children can affect adults in eating behaviors. Most studies focus on how adults form children’s dietary habits.

"The analysis shows that adults' fat intake, particularly saturated fat, is higher for those who live with children compared to adults who don't live with children," said Helena Laroche, M.D., an associate in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the study's primary author.
