Abstract

Although overt cardiovascular disease (CVD) may not appear until later in life, autopsy studies have shown fatty streaks and fibrous plaques in the aorta and coronary arteries of adolescents. This suggests that the risk of CVD originates in early life. Risk factors for CVD in the young (children and adolescents) are increasingly common worldwide.
