Teach Your Boys Young To Avoid Saturated Fat

Teach Your Boys Young To Avoid Saturated Fat
I have seen some parents taking their small children to McDonalds very frequently. Cultivating such habits in children may have a double edge effect. A recent report published in the Journal of the American Heart Association suggest that, boys with an intake of low saturated fat diet from birth till ten years of age have lower cholesterol levels, healthier arteries and less risk of heart disease or stroke in the later part of their life.
At the same time low saturated diet had no significant impact on girls. The exact cause of this difference between boys and girls is unknown. Researchers speculate that this may be due to the level of sex hormones present in boys and girls.

The study indicated better endothelial health for those who were on a low saturated fat diet compared to the boys eating a typical diet. As per an analysis, the superiority of the endothelial function in boys was because of the lower fat diet early in life rather than later.
Previous studies have indicated that beginning a low saturated-fat diet in infancy with individualized diet and lifestyle counseling could lower cholesterol in children without harming their growth or neurological development.
