Childhood Diet Lower In Fat And Higher In Fiber May Lower Risk For Chronic Disease In Adulthood

What a concept - not fattening kids up to prevent diseases of choice in the future.
A recent study has found that a childhood behavioral intervention to lower dietary intake of total fat and saturated fat and increase consumption of foods that are good sources of dietary fiber resulted in significantly lower fasting plasma glucose levels and lower systolic blood pressure when study participants were re-evaluated in young adulthood. The study was accepted for publication in The Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism (JCEM).
Too bad it will be unlikely to get implemented by fat parents.
