Thanks to the big don, Gary C Baddeley @ Disinfo for posting the article and giving it a new title.
Mike Carney for USA Today On Deadline reported:
A leading group of pediatricians wants some children to begin taking cholesterol medication at age 8.
“If we are more aggressive about this in childhood, I think we can have an impact on what happens later in life … and avoid some of these heart attacks and strokes in adulthood,” Dr. Stephen Daniels of the American Academy of Pediatrics tells the Associated Press.
The group is advising physicians to begin screening children for high cholesterol between the ages of 2 and 10.
