Another wake-up call to parents is the new guidelines urging that all children between the ages of 9 and 11 be screened for high cholesterol. Our children today are being subjected to obesity with poor diets consisting of fast food and processed food filled with fat and corn sugar (high fructose corn syrup). Kids are regularly consuming sugary drinks that are nothing more than liquid candy bars. Kids are naturals with self-hypnosis so if you are concerned about childhood obesity in your family, get the whole family involved. Teach your family how to hypnotize themselves, buy real plant-based food and make physical activity something that you do with your family frequently. Ending childhood obesity is a family affair.

A Wake-Up Call: All Children Should Be Tested for High Cholesterol

WebMD Health News, November 11, 2011: When you look at a child, you don’t think heart disease. But in a sign of the times — these obese times — new guidelines today are urging that all children between the ages of 9 and 11 be screened for high cholesterol. In addition, the guidelines call for the same children to again be screened between the ages of 17 and 21.

Why? Because keeping children’s cholesterol in the healthy range may help prevent the onset of heart disease later in life. High cholesterol is a chief cause of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, a major cause of heart disease.

Eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, and avoiding smoking are among the lifestyle factors that will help kids maintain a “low-risk status” throughout childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood. And doing so will greatly lower the risk of future heart problems.

If you can make it to 45 or 50 without risk factors, it’s very unlikely that you will have heart disease.
