Relationship of childhood obesity to coronary heart disease risk factors in adulthood: the Bogalusa Heart Study
Cardiovascular risk factors and excess adiposity among overweight children and adolescents: The Bogalusa Heart Study
Relation of body mass index and skinfold thicknesses to cardiovascular disease risk factors in children: the Bogalusa Heart Study
In the Bogalusa Heart Study
, left ventricular mass (by echocardiography) and body composition measures were recorded four years apart in 67 healthy children initially 9-22 years old (Urbina et al.

Effects of secular trends in obesity on coronary risk factors in children: the Bogalusa Heart Study
7% of children aged 7-10 years who did not report eating breakfast is very similar to the 13% of 10-year olds who reported not eating any breakfast in the period 1987-88 in the Los Angeles Bogalusa heart study
(1) Among NZ children, those who are least likely to eat breakfast are in the 11-14 years age group and this is similar to a Scottish study where breakfast omission was most frequent among young adults, (4) and to the results from a Swedish study (11) and the Australian National Nutrition Survey.
The Bogalusa Heart Study
and the Child and Adolescent Trial for Cardiovascular Health (CATCH) study reported comparable rates of overweight and obesity (approximately 30%); however, these investigations only reported data collected through 1994 and prevalence rates have likely increased.
To see whether obesity and insulin resistance affect aging at the cellular level, Gerald Berenson of the Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans and his colleagues examined blood samples drawn at least 10 years apart from participants in the ongoing Bogalusa Heart Study
And in the process, the Bogalusa Heart Study
has yielded invaluable insights into risk factors now considered common knowledge.
For three decades, renowned cardiologist Gerald Berenson and his team of researchers have conducted the longest, most detailed study of children in the world; in the process, the Bogalusa Heart Study
has provided invaluable insights into the natural history of coronary heart disease and hypertension.
